Based on Sheikh Fawzaan‘s explanation of Hadith #24 in An-Nawawee’s collection of 40 Hadith;On the authority of Abu Dharr (radiAllaahu anhu) from the Messenger (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) from his Lord (‘azza wa jall) that He said:

O My servants ! I have forbidden dhulm (oppression) for Myself, and I have made it forbidden amongst you, so do not oppress one another…. (Hadeeth Qudsi)

Sheikh Fawzaan mentioned three types of dhulm (oppression);

1. Dhulm (oppression) between a servant and his Lord – Shirk
2. Dhulm (oppression) between a servant and his nafs (own self) – Base Desires and Sins
3. Dhulm (oppression) between one person and others

Some Notes

Those who believe and do not mix their faith with Dhulm, these are the ones for whom there is faith, and they are rightly guided.” [Sooratul An’aam][Here Dhulm – to associate partners with Allaah.]

Avoid oppression, because oppression will result in deep darkness on the Day of Ressurection.” [Recorded by Muslim and others]

Avoid the oppressed’s supplication (against you), even if he was a kafir, because there is no barrier in its way (to Allah).” [Recorded by Ahmed, Abu Ya’la , and others. Verified to be hasan by al-Albani as sahih no 767 and sahih ul-jami no 119]

Whoever has oppressed his brother in regard to his honor or property should beg for his forgiveness today – before it will be taken from him on a day when there will be no dinars or dirhams: If he has good deeds, some of them will be taken to the amount of his oppression; and if he has no good deeds, some of his (oppressed) companion’s sins will be taken and loaded upon him.” [Recorded by al-Bukhari and Ahmed]
