" A Muslim is a brother of a Muslim who does not oppress him nor hand him over and who is after the need of his brother, Allah will be after his need and who relieves a Muslim from the plights of distress, Allah relieves him from one of the plights of distress of The Day of Resurrection and who enshrouds a Muslim, Allah will cover him on The Day of Judgment"(Sahih Al Bani)
