📖Sunan Ibn Majah 2340
It was narrated from ‘Ubadah bin Samit that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) ruled: “There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm.”
- This hadith from Sunan Ibn Majah 2340 narrates that ‘Ubadah bin Samit reported the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as saying, “There should be neither harming nor reciprocating harm.” This means that it is not permissible for a Muslim to harm or hurt another person, whether physically or emotionally. Additionally, a Muslim should not respond to harm with harm, as this only leads to a cycle of retaliation and further harm. Rather, a Muslim should strive to do good and avoid harming others, even in difficult situations. This hadith emphasizes the importance of kindness, compassion, and peaceful coexistence among people, which are fundamental principles of Islam.
