Question

Assalamuaalaikum.. i need your help in this
one matteri have a sister of islam, who have
justrecently converted to Islam...she have
send me this mail, askingthis question,,, and
to be honesti don't know what to tel her, as
she is still a new comer in to Islamand i
don't want to be giving herany wrong
information, as i don'thave much knowledge
about thismyself... the question of my
islamic sister is.. Can you please help me?
The "golden rule" .... Do unto others as you
would have done unto you ... or a version of
this phrase appears in various scriptures of
many faiths. I was told today that no version
of this appears in the Qur'an, however, I am
sure I have read it, but I cannot remember
where. I am not well versed yet in the
Qur'an as I am just learning. So, can
someone please point me in the right
direction. The only thing I have found is a
Hadith saying that the Prophet Muhammad
(pbuh) stated that no one is a believer unless
he wishes for others what he wishes for
himself. Thank you for any help that you can
give me. Wa Salam, Mary Anne plz ans me
with reference as soon as posible jazakallah
khair.

Fatwa:
All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

First of all, we ask Allah to reward that sister
for being keen on learning and studying the
Quran, and may Allah reward you for
avoiding to speak about religious matters
without knowledge.

As regards the expression that is mentioned
in the question, its meaning is correct
because it means justice and equity when
dealing with people. There is evidence in the
Quran about this, like the verses which order
to be just, such as the saying of Allah (which
means): { O you who have believed, be
persistently standing firm in justice,
witnesses for Allah .}[Quran 4:135]
Moreover, this meaning is explicitly
mentioned in the Sunnah. The Prophet
said: “Whoever wants to be drawn away from
the Fire and admitted to Paradise, let him die
while believing in Allah and the Last Day, and
do for the people what he likes them to do
for him. ” [Muslim]

Furthermore, Al-Bukhari reported a
statement from ‘Ammaar ibn Yaasir , may
Allah be pleased with him, which reads:
“There are three characteristic if one has
them, he has gathered the characteristics of
faith, and he mentioned amongst them ‘to
take others’ rights from oneself’; this means
to deal with people in the same way you
want to be dealt with, as stated by the
scholars .
It should be mentioned that Islam is a
religion which advocates good moral
conducts and good traits, but this does not
necessarily mean that every detail about that
is proven with specific evidence in the
Quran; as it might be proven in the Sunnah,
because the Sunnah is evidence in the same
way the Quran is evidence.

Finally, it should be mentioned that a man
should observe Islamic pre-conditions when
dealing with a non-Mahram woman in order
to avoid the means of temptation.

Allah Knows best.
