Help the Oppressed and the Oppressor

ICNA-MAS Convention

A talk by Imam Suhaib Webb at the ICNA-MAS Convention in Baltimore in May 2015

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

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

People asked, “O Allah’s Apostle! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor?”

The Prophet said, “By preventing him from oppressing others.” (Bukhari)

Imam Suhaib Webb reflects on this hadith in this inspiring talk.
