Sunnah 158: Cooperate with others to do good

February 6, 2011

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Allah says in the Qur’an:

“And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression.” (Qur’an, 5:2)

Some people take a very Muslim-centric view when deciding to do what is good. Certainly, being an active part of the Muslim ummah is vital. However, this does not prevent us from joining the struggles of others if it is in the path of righteousness.

To make this sunnah more specific, look around you and think what projects for good are you a part of? Have you been demonstrating for Egypt with your brothers and sisters in humanity? Do you volunteer at a homeless shelter? Doing these things is cooperating with others in righteousness.
