Man - A Social Creature

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله، وبعد


The root word in Arabic for MAN is 'INS' إنس.The word 'UNS' أٌنس means 'sociable', 'sociability'. Man, by nature, is a social being; i.e. he lives in a society, is dependent upon it. Without a society, human lives would be difficult. So much to say, it is the duty of each & every person on earth, to contribute for the well being of the society & to keep a good relationship with other fellow human beings.

Allaah says: {The believers are but a brotherhood.} [Surah al-Hujuraat (49): 10]

Narrated Anas: the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "None of you will have faith (imaan) till he likes for his (Muslim) brother what he likes for himself." [Bukhari]

Narrated Abdullah bin Umar: the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allaah will fulfill his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allaah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection, and whoever screened a Muslim, Allaah will screen him on the Day of Resurrection." [Bukhari]

Narrated Abu Hurairah: the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said,"Allaah helps the servant as long as the servant helps his brother" [Muslim]

Narrated Nauman bin Bashir: the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "The parable of the believers in relation to the kindness, mercy and compassion they have for each other, is that of the body: when an organ of it falls ill, the rest of the body responds with fever and sleeplessness." [Bukhari]

Narrated Abu Musa: the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم said, "A believer to another believer is like a building whose different parts enforce each other."  The Prophet then clasped his hands with the fingers interlaced (while saying that). [Bukhari]
