Remove a Harmful Thing

‎”Removing anything harmful from the path is part of faith.” We are taught to be concerned about the safety and well being of all human beings to this degree. If a road or pathway that is used by people, be they Muslim or not, has anything that may cause harm upon it, then in the same way that we would like to save ourselves, we should like that for all. One day we will have been saved due to a similar deed by others.

    Asslaamoalaikum. I feel it is very difficult to implement this with regard to roads in India and particularly in Mumbai !! It is different if you are talking about spiritual path.

    • Wa alaykum Salam,
      Agreed it may difficult for roads, but most of us have no excuse when it comes to footpaths and walk ways used by people.

    Assalamu alaikum,

    Its true and authentic. But in UK, Muslims spit, throw cans, kick things on the road without thinking.

    The blame goes to the parents who themselves are not correct, so their foolish actions are picked by the children.

    May ALLAH SWT guide us all ……….aameen
