As it is mentioned in Islamic texts, the issue of brotherhood is one of the most important issues in Islam, and for this reason, the issue of “Rights of Brotherhood” is also very important in Islam. From the view of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him and His Progeny) “There are thirty rights for each Muslim incumbent upon his/his believing brother. He/she cannot be relieved from them unless he/she honors them or is forgiven by his/her brother.” (Wasail al-Shi’a, P.212)
1-“He/she must forgive his/her brother’s faults.”… None of us are infallible and we may be wrong. So, we must take easy to forgive others as we would like others forgive us.
2- “He/she must be kind to his/her brother during hard times.”
3- “He/she must hide his/her brother’s secrets.”… Things that we know about our friends or are said in private are the secrets of others. A good friend does not reveal the secret of his/her friend.
4- “He/she must compensate for his/her brother’s faults.”
5- “He/she must accept his/her brother’s apologies.”… As we like God accept our apologies.
6- “He/she must defend his/her brother against those who gossip behind his/her back.”
7- “He/she must always advise his/her brother”… When you really love someone you always want him/her to be in good condition. So, you always advise.
8- He/she must safeguard his/her brother’s friendship.”
9- “He/she must honor his/her brother’s covenant.”
10- “He/she must visit him/her when his/her brother gets ill.”
11- “He/she must attend his/her brother’s funeral procession.”
12- “He/she must accept his/her brother’s invitations.”… Because it shows you honor him/her.
13- “He/she must accept his/her brother’s gifts.”…accept it even if the gift is not too expensive.
…Continue if Allah wills.
