Hadith on Faith: Treat people how you love to be treated

Abu al-Muntafiq reported: I said, “O Messenger of Allah, teach me what will save me from the punishment of Allah and admit me into Paradise.” The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Worship Allah and do not associate anything with Him, establish the prescribed prayers, give the obligatory charity, and perform the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages.” And I think the Prophet said, Fast the month of Ramadan, and treat people the way you would love to be treated, and do not treat them the way you would hate to be treated.”

عن أبي المنتفق قَالَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ عَلِّمْنِي بِمَا يُنَجِّينِي مِنْ عَذَابِ اللَّهِ وَيُدْخِلُنِي جَنَّتَهُ فَقَالَ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ اعْبُدِ اللَّهَ وَلا تُشْرِكْ بِهِ شَيْئًا وَأَقِمِ الصَّلاةَ الْمَكْتُوبَةَ وَأَدِّ الزَّكَاةَ الْمَفْرُوضَةَ وَحُجَّ وَاعْتَمِرْ وَأَظُنُّهُ قَالَ وَصُمْ رَمَضَانَ وَانْظُرْ مَا تُحِبُّ لِلنَّاسِ أَنْ يَأْتُوهُ إِلَيْكَ فَافْعَلْهُ بِهِمْ وَمَا تَكْرَهُ أَنْ يَأْتُوهُ إِلَيْكَ فَذَرْهُمْ مِنْهُ
