BackThe Right Of The People Of Your Creed

حق أهل ملتك عامة

وَأمّــــــــــا حَقُّ أَهْلِ مِلَّتِكَ عَامَّةً فَإضْـــــــــــمَارُ السَّلامَةِ وَنشْرِ جَنَــــــــــــــــاحِ الرَّحْمَةِ وَالرِّفْقِ بمُسِيئِهــــــــــــــــــــِمْ وَتأَلُّفُهُمْ وَاسْتِصْلاحُهُمْ وَشُكْرُ مُحْسِنِهِمْ إلَى نفْسِهِ وَإلَيْكَ، فَإنَّ إحْسَانهُ إلَى نفْسِهِ إحْسَانهُ إلَيكَ إذا كَفَّ عَنْكَ أَذاهُ وَكَفَاكَ مَئونتَهُ وَحَبَسَ عَنكَ نفْسَهُ فَعَمِّهِمْ جَمِيعًا بدَعْوَتِكَ وَانصُرْهُمْ جَمِيعـاً بنُصْرَتِكَ وَأَنزَلتَهُمْ جَمِيعـــــــــــــــاً مِنْكَ مَنَـــــــــــازِلَهُمْ، كَبيرَهُمْ بمَنْزِلَةِ الْوَالِـــــــــــدِ وَصَغِيرَهُمْ بمَنْزِلَةِ الْوَلَدِ وَأَوْسَـــــــــــــطَهُمْ بمَنْزِلَةِ الأَخِ. فَمَـنْ أَتـــــــــــــــاكَ تَعَاهَدْتَه بلُطْفٍ وَرَحْمَةٍ. وَصِلْ أَخَاكَ بمَا يَجِبُ لِلأَخِ عَلَى أَخِيهِ.

And the right of the people of your creed is that you should whole-heartedly provide safety for them, and gently show them mercy, and treat their wrong-doers with patience, and treat them with friendliness, and seek their welfare, and thank those of them who do good to you and to themselves. Their doing good to themselves is considered to be the same as doing good to you. This is because (by so doing) they have not bothered you and have not put you to any trouble. Then you should pray for all of them, and back all of them up with your support. And you should respect each one of them as he deserves: their old men hold the position of your fathers, and their children hold the position of your children, and their youths hold the position of your brothers. You should gently and compassionately care for those of them who come to you. And you should treat your brethren as brothers deserve to be treated.
