Chapter 22
Giving Counsel

Allah, the Exalted, says:

The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islamic religion)”. (49:10)

“(Nuh said) I give sincere advice to you”. (7:62)

“(And Hud said) And I am a trustworthy adviser (or well-wisher) for you”. (7:68)

181. Tamim bin Aus Ad-Dari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “Ad-Deen is sincerity”. We said: “For whom?” He replied, “For Allah, His Book, His Messenger and for the leaders of the Muslims and their masses”.
[Muslim].

182. Jarir bin `Abdullah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I made my covenant with Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) on the observance of Salat, payment of  Zakat, and giving counsel to Muslim.”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

183. Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “No one of you becomes a true believer until he likes for his brother what he likes for himself”.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
