Hadith On Guiding Others Toward the Faith and Goodness

The Ahmadiyya Gazette, August 1994

Uqbah ibn Amr Ansari relates that the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: The reward of one who guides another towards good is equal to the reward of the latter. (Muslim)

Abu Hurairah relates that the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: He who calls people to guidance has the same reward as those who follow him without any diminution of the reward of the latter, and he who calls people to error carries the same burden of sin as those who follow him without any diminution in the burdens of the latter. (Muslim)

Tamim Dari relates that the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: Faith is goodwill. We asked: Towards whom? He answered: Towards Allah, His Book, His Messenger, leading Muslims and the general public. (Muslim)

Anas relates that the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: A person is not a believer unless he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself. (Bokhari and Muslim)

Abu Musa Ash'ari relates that the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: The relationship between one believer and another is like that between different parts of a building, one part strengthens another. Then he gripped the fingers of one hand between those of the other by way of illustration. (Bokhari and Muslim)

Abu Musa relates that the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, observed: The case of the guidance and knowledge with which I have been sent is that of rain which falls on land part of which is good and fertile and dry grass thereon turns green and a quantity of new and fresh grass is produced; and part of it is dry and it stores up the water and God makes it beneficial for people, they drink from it and use it for cultivation; and part of it is a barren plain which neither retains the water nor produces fresh grass. This is the case of those who understand the faith revealed by Allah and benefit from that with which Allah has sent me and learn it and teach it; and of those who do not stir their heads to gain knowledge of the faith and do not accept the guidance with which I have been sent. (Bokhari and Muslim)
