Hadith on Brotherhood: It is enough evil to belittle a Muslim

Wathilah ibn al-Asqa’ reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The Muslim is sacred to another Muslim: his life, his honor, and his wealth. The Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. He does not wrong him or betray him. Righteousness is here,” and he pointed to his heart. The Prophet said, “It is enough evil for a man to look down upon his Muslim brother.”

عَنْ وَاثِلَةَ بْنِ الْأَسْقَعِ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ الْمُسْلِمُ عَلَى الْمُسْلِمِ حَرَامٌ دَمُهُ وَعِرْضُهُ وَمَالُهُ الْمُسْلِمُ أَخُو الْمُسْلِمِ لَا يَظْلِمُهُ وَلَا يَخْذُلُهُ وَالتَّقْوَى هَاهُنَا وَأَوْمَأَ بِيَدِهِ إِلَى الْقَلْبِ قَالَ وَحَسْبُ امْرِئٍ مِنْ الشَّرِّ أَنْ يَحْقِرَ أَخَاهُ الْمُسْلِمَ
