The Bonds of Brotherhood
As Muslims, our faith is not complete, and our worship is not sufficient, until we have built the strong bonds of brotherhood amongst ourselves. This fact is frequently forgotten by many Muslims, and these bonds are broken over minor disputes and arguments. This article discusses the importance of brotherhood in Islam, with evidence from the Quran, Sunnah and the Seerah.
Most Muslims focus on the ritualistic worship aspects of Islam, while neglecting the core values that Islam promotes. Prayers, fasting, charity, hajj, remembrance of Allah (swt) and similar acts of worship form the basis of Islam. They are extremely important to firmly establish the faith of the Muslim, and to build their relationship with Allah (swt) and increase their piety.
