Notice how three of the things he mentions

Allah described the people of Prophet Muhammad SAW as the best people sent to mankind because of three things: two of them are about helping others.

Allah says in the Qur’an:

You (O people of Muhammad) are the best people born for (the benefit of) mankind, (because) you enjoin doing all the good things and forbid all the wrong (bad and vile) things, and you also believe in Allah ( with true faith). And if the People of the Book (Jews and Christians) had believed (as they should), it would have been good for them. (But) among them there are believers and most of them: wicked people.

— Surah Al-Imraan verse 110

Encouraging good deeds and preventing bad deeds is a community-based activity

We should join hands with our Muslim Database brothers and non-Muslims, and lead them towards goodness and prevent them from evil.

This does not mean by simply preaching and telling them what is halal and haram,.

But it involves the act of mobilizing the community towards what is good (building community projects, schools, hospitals, preventing evil through campaigns against tyranny, torture and environmental destruction)

Narrated by Anas RA. Prophet Muhammad SAW said:

“Help your brother, whether he is oppressor or oppressed”.

The friends asked, “How can we help him if he is the wrongdoer?” .

The Prophet replied, “By preventing him from oppressing others.”

— Bukhari

And if we don’t play a role in today’s world we risk allowing the destruction of ourselves and society


Narrated An-Nu’man bin Bashir that the Fresco Data Prophet SAW said:

The comparison of those who obey God’s commands and prohibitions compared to those who violate them is likened to those who take a seat in a ship.

Some of them get a place at the top, and some of them at the bottom.

When those below need water, they have to go up to bring water (and trouble others) so they say, “Let’s make a hole in the side of our ship (and get water) and we don’t have to trouble those who are above” .

So if the people sitting on top let these people do what they have suggested, the ship will be destroyed, but if they prevent it, both will be safe.
