All safe from you but your Muslim brother is not safe from you?

 

Sufyaan b. Husayn said:

“I mentioned something bad about a man in the presence of Iyaas b. Mu’aawiyah who looked at me and said: ‘Have you fought against the Romans?’ I said: ‘No.’ He said: ‘What about Sind and India and Turkey?’ I said: ‘No.’ He said: ‘Rome, Sind, India, and Turkey are all safe from you but your Muslim brother is not safe from you?!’ Sufyaan b. Husayn said: ‘I never did that again.’”

[Al-Bidayah wa an-Nihayah (Vol. 13 /121)]
