by Imam Nawawi

268. Chapter: On forbidding injury

Allah Almighty says, "And those who abuse believing men and woman, when they have not merited it, bear the weight of slander and clear wrongdoing." (33:58)

1565. 'Abdullah ibn 'Amr reported that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "A Muslim is the one from whose tongue and hand the Muslims are safe. An emigrant (muhajir) is someone who abandons what Allah has forbidden." [Agreed upon]

1566. 'Abdullah ibn 'Amr ibn al-'As reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, "Anyone who wants to be far from the Fire and to enter the Garden must die believing in Allah and the Last Day, and should only give to other people what he would like to be given to himself." [Muslim]
