Hadith on Mercy: The Importance of Showing Mercy to Others

📖Sahih al-Bukhari 7376
Narrated Jarir bin `Abdullah: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Allah will not be merciful to those who are not merciful to mankind.”

  • This hadith narrated by Jarir bin Abdullah states that the Prophet (ﷺ) said that Allah will not show mercy to those who do not show mercy to others. This emphasizes the importance of being kind and merciful to other human beings as it is an essential aspect of Islam. Allah rewards those who show kindness and mercy to others and punishes those who do not. Therefore, it is essential for Muslims to be compassionate, empathetic, and helpful towards their fellow human beings to earn Allah’s mercy and blessings.
