NOT LOVING ONE’S FELLOW MUSLIMS

p75.28 The Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) said:

“By Him in whose hand is my soul, none of you will enter paradise until you believe, and none of you will believe until you love each other. Shall I not tell you of something which if you do it will create love among you? Increase the custom of greeting each other with ‘as-Saдamu ‘alaykum.’ ” (Kitab al-kaba’ir wa tabyin al-maharim (y36),35-181)

p76.0 (n: Most of the above enormities are agreed upon by all four schools of jurisprudence. A more comprehensive list by Ibn Hajar Haytami is given below at w52.)
