The DO NOT'S in Islam.

Updated: Apr 22, 2021

Key points that every Muslim must follow to keep oneself, family, community, and nation healthy and secure.
A Muslim is a brother of one another.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, "Beware of suspicion, for suspicion is the worst of false tales.

وعن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال‏:‏ ‏"‏إياكم والظن، فإن الظن أكذب الحديث

Do not look for other's faults.

ولا تحسسوا

Do not spy one another, and do not practice Najsh (meaning not to overbid one another).

ولا تجسسوا ولا تنافسوا

Do not be jealous of one another. Do not nurse enmity against one another. Do not sever ties with one another. Become the servants of Allah and be brothers to one another as He (Allah) commanded.

ولا تحاسدوا، ولا تباغضوا، ولا تدابروا، وكونوا عباد الله إخوانًا كما أمركم

A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim.

المسلم أخو المسلم

He should neither oppress him nor humiliate him.

ولا يخذله ولا يحقره

The piety is here! The piety is here!" While saying so he pointed towards his chest. "It is enough evil for a Muslim to look down upon his Muslim brother.

التقوى ههنا، ‏"‏ ويشير إلى صدره ‏"‏بحسب امرئ من الشر أن يحقر أخاه المسلم

All things of a Muslim are inviolable for his brother in Faith: his blood, his wealth, and his honor.

كل المسلم على المسلم حرام‏:‏ دمه، وعرضه، وماله

Verily, Allah does not look to your bodies nor to your faces, but He looks to your hearts and your deeds.

إن الله لا ينظر إلى أجسادكم، ولا إلى صوركم، ولكن ينظر إلى قلوبكم وأعمالكم.

Another narration is: "Do not feel envy against one another; do not nurse enmity; do not spy on one another and do not cheat one another. Be Allah's servants, brethren to one another."

وفي رواية‏:‏ ‏"‏لا تحاسدوا، ولا تباغضوا، ولا تجسسوا، ولا تحسسوا ولا تناجشوا وكونوا عباد الله إخوانًا‏"‏‏.

Another narration is: "Do not have estranged relations with one another. Do not nurse enmity and do not feel envy against one another. O Allah's worshippers! Be brothers!"

‏وفي رواية‏:‏ ‏"‏لا تقاطعوا، ولا تدابروا، ولا تباغضوا ولا تحاسدوا، وكونوا عباد الله إخوانًا‏"‏‏.‏

Another narration is: "Do not estrange mutual relations and do not intervene into the transaction which is likely to be settled with another person."

وفي رواية‏:‏ ‏"‏لا تهاجروا ولا يبع بعضكم على بيع بعض‏"‏‏.‏

(‏‏(‏رواه مسلم بكل هذه الروايات، وروى البخاري أكثرها‏)‏‏)‏‏
