Help the oppressed and the oppressor


SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: Help your brother, whether he is the oppressed or the oppressor. The Companions asked: O’ the Prophet of Allah (SWT); we know how to help him if he is the oppressed, but what do you mean by helping the oppressor? The Prophet (PBUH) replied: Help him not to be an oppressor [1]. In another narration, the Prophet (PBUH) said: All the creatures are the family and dependents of God; therefore, the most popular of them with God is the one who is more useful for the family (creatures) of Allah (SWT) [2].
