📖Sahih Muslim 2674
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying: He who called (people) to righteousness, there would be reward (assured) for him like the rewards of those who adhered to it, without their rewards being diminished in any respect. And he who called (people) to error, he shall have to carry (the burden) of its sin, like those who committed it, without their sins being diminished in any respect.
- This hadith from Sahih Muslim states that if someone invites or encourages others to do good deeds and follow the path of righteousness, then they will receive a reward equal to the reward of those who actually follow that path, without any reduction in the rewards of either. On the other hand, if someone invites or encourages others to do evil or wrong things, then they will be held accountable for their sins as well as the sins of those whom they have influenced, without any reduction in the sins of either. In other words, this hadith emphasizes the importance of inviting and encouraging others to do good deeds and avoid sins, as this can lead to great rewards, while also warning against encouraging people to do wrong, as it can lead to serious consequences. It also emphasizes personal responsibility, as one’s actions can have a ripple effect on others, and one will be held accountable for the influence they have on others, whether positive or negative.
