IslamTo enter into peace through surrender to God puts a lot of importance on being a good neighbour. Muslims are taught that they need to look out for and be good to those around them, no matter what their race, gender, age, status or religion.
The Qur’an says:
“Worship God, and do not join partners with Him; and do good – to parents, near of kin, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are near, neighbours who are strangers…“(Qur’an 4:36)
MuhammadBelieved by Muslims to be the last Prophet sent from God to ... (pbuh) also said:
‘One is not a true believer, if s/he fills his stomach while his/her neighbour goes hungry’
Muslims believe that they have been created for a purpose, part of that purpose is to look after the earth and take care of humanity.
To show people how to be good to others, Muslims believe that God sent Messengers – Prophets, who demonstrated goodness in their action and behaviour towards others.
Prophet Jesus(pbuh) was well known to have been gentle and kind to those around him, curing the blind, healing the sick and taking care of the needy.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), who Muslims believe was the last in a long line of Prophets, also taught kindness and care for humanity.
