Hadith on Safety: The best Muslims do good deeds often and do not harm people

January 12, 2016

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Shall I not tell you what distinguishes the best of you from the worst of you? The best of you are those from whom goodness is expected and people are safe from their evil. The worst of you are those from whom goodness is not expected and people are not safe from their evil.”
