Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm,

وَتَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْبِرِّ وَالتَّقْوَىٰ ۖ وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ

(Qur’ān 05:02). ‘Wa ta‘āwanū ‘ala l-birri wa t-taqwā wa la ta‘āwanū ‘ala l-lithmī wa l-‘udwān’, ‘And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression.’ This is the order of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla to help each other in charity, to help people in helping each other in everything. This is an order from Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla to our Prophet Sayyidina Muhammad salla Llāhu ‘alayhi wa-sallam.

This is enough for human beings to understand how great it is to be with Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla and with His ﷻ Messengers. They are only for teaching people, guiding people to the good thing. They are never wanting any bad thing for people, for human beings. They are trying to save them from the bad things in this life. And what’s more important: the second life, the real life. This life is nothing. Only – even not like opening your eyes and closing them compared to eternity.

For this, we insha’Allah must follow this order: to help. Every time, we must be helping people. Even if they are not helping you, even if they are harming you, if you help them you will be a beloved one for Allah ﷻ and you will be happy. This is the rule of Allah ﷻ, the order of Allah ﷻ.

Many Awliyau’Llah were suffering and still helping people; they were not fed up, not running away. There is one saying, “To be patient with who harms you is good manners. But to be not only patient but to do goodness to who does you badness, these are the real good people.” Maybe you can be patient with who does you badness; you run away from them. But if you are patient and you do a good thing for who does you a bad thing, these are the real honorable people. Very few people do this. And these people are Awliyau’Llah, the beloved ones for Allah ﷻ.

And the continuation of this verse is, “وَلَا تَعَاوَنُوا عَلَى الْإِثْمِ وَالْعُدْوَانِ”, ‘Wa la ta‘āwanū ‘ala l-lithmī wa l-‘udwān’, ‘But do not cooperate in sin and aggression.’ (Qur’ān 05:02). Don’t help each other to harm people, to do a bad thing for people. Don’t do this. Even if your tribe, your people are doing so, you mustn’t. Because people like to help each other in everything. Some people are even harming people and oppressing people, the others don’t say, “Don’t do this” but help them.

This is what happened in ancient times, which is mentioned in Surat Yasin. The disciples of Sayyidina ‘Isa ‘alayhi s-salam went to this city, they call it Antakya. The city where there was a big earthquake now. The whole city didn’t accept the disciples and didn’t accept the truth. This good man who was a carpenter, Najjar. His name was Habib an-Najjar: meaning Habib the carpenter. He came and told his people, “O, don’t make this. These people are good. They are advising you to be good people to save you from badness.” They were angry at him. They threw him [on the ground] and were stepping on him. And they killed him like this. But he said, which is mentioned in Qu’ran, in Yasin, “O, I wish my people would now how I am now!” He was in paradise. But in Dunya his [situation] was very bad that they killed him by stepping on him. Even with all that, he wished his people to be good. Even in Akhirah, they are wishing goodness for people. May Allah ﷻ make us to try to be like them insha’Allah.

Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
