A believer is so lenient and gentle that one might call him stupid.

A believer is the brother of another believer and never connives at wishing him good.

A believer is the one whom people consider honest as to their lives, wealth and blood.

● المُؤْمِنُ مَنْفَعَةٌ، إنْ مَاشَيْتَهُ نَفَعَكَ، وَإنْ شَاوَرْتَهُ نَفَعَكَ، وَإنْ شَارَكْتَهُ نَفَعَكَ، وَكُلُّ شَيْ‏ءٍ مِنْ أمْرِهِ مَنْفَعَةٌ.

A believer is the source of benefit. He will avail you, should you keep his company, counsel with him and become his partner. He is the cause of benefit in all affairs.

A believer makes friends (with people), and there is no good in the one who does not make friends and is not subject of friendship.

● لا يَشْبَعُ المُؤْمِنُ دُونَ جَارِهِ.

A believer must not feel satiated, with his neighbor being hungry.

● مَثَلُ المُؤْمِن وَالإيمَانِ كَمَثَلِ الفَرَسِ يَجُولُ في أخِيَّتِهِ، ثُمَّ يَرْجِعُ في أخِيَّتِةِ.

A believer to (his) faith is like unto a horse to its stable around which it moves about (for a while) and then returns to it.

● المُؤْمِنُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِ كَالْبُنْيَانِ يَشُدُّ بَعْضُهُ بَعْضَاً.

A believer to a believer is like unto a building a part of which fortifies another.

● المُؤْمِنُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِ كَالْبُنْيَانِ المَرْصُوْصِ؛ يَشُدُّ بَعضُهُ بَعْضَاً.

A believer to a believer is like unto a firm building, parts of which fortifying one another.

● المُؤْمِنُ مِنْ أهْلِ الإيْمانِ بِمَنْزِلَةِ الرَّأْسِ مِنَ الجَسَدِ؛ يَأْلَمُ المُؤْمِنُ لأهْلِ الإيْمانِ كَما يَأْلَمُ الجَسَدُ لِما في الرَّأْسِ.

A believer to other believers is like head to the body, suffering from their pains just as head suffers from the pains of the body.
