Rights of common Muslims

It should be note that apart from relatives, every Muslim has certain rights over other Muslims as a Muslim. It is necessary for every Muslim to pay them. Here are some of these rights:

  1. At the time of meeting, every Muslim should greet his Muslim brother and man should shake hands with man and woman should shake hands with woman, this is a very good deed. But keep in mind that if you see infidels, polytheists and apostates, as well as those who gamble and drink alcohol and engage in such sins, you should never greet them. Because to greet someone is to respect him and it is in the hadith that When a Muslim respects a sinner, the Throne trembles with divine wrath.[1]الکامل فی ضعفاء الرجال،سابق بن عبداللہ الرقی،ج۴،ص۵۴۹
