The third right of a Muslim towards another Muslim is that he should always wish well for his brother. 

Muslims Are Brothers Unto Each Other:

Allah Ta’ala states:

Muslims are brothers, therefore make peace between the two brothers and fear Allah that mercy may be shown to you.(Surah Hujurat, Verse 10)

Islam is the Religion of Goodness

Hazrat Tameem Daari Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu narrates that Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “Our religion means peace and wishing well.” We asked, “Wishing well for whom?” He replied, “For Allah Ta’ala, His Book, His Prophet, for the scholars of Islam and for all Muslims.”
(Muslim Shareef vol 1 page 54)

Wishing well for Allah Ta’ala means to believe in Him as the One and Only Supreme Lord, to not associate partners with Him, to believe Him to be free from all defects and the embodiment of all superior qualities.
Wishing well for the Prophet means to accept his Prophethood, to believe in him, to respect and revere him, and to obey and help him.

Wishing well for the scholars of Islam means to obey them and help them in carrying out their tasks, and wishing well for all Muslims means to fulfil their rights. In relation to this, Hafiz Abul Qasim Tibraani Rehmatullahe Ta’ala ‘Alaihi has reported a beautiful and thought provoking Hadith. He states that the Companion Hazrat Jareer Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu sent his slave to the market in order to buy a horse. The slave bought a horse for 300 Dirhams and came back home with the horse and its owner so that the owner could be paid the amount that had been agreed.

Hazrat Jareer looked at the horse and said to the owner, “Your horse is worth more than 300 Dirhams. Will you sell it to me for 400 Dirhams?” The owner replied, “As you wish.” Then Hazrat Jareer said, “Your horse is very valuable, will you sell him for 500?” In this manner he kept increasing the price until he said, “Will you sell me your horse for 800 Dirhams?” The owner was ecstatic and sold his horse for 800 Dirhams to Hazrat Jareer. When he was asked the reason for this, Hazrat Jareer replied, “I pledged allegiance at the hands of Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him)and promised to wish well for all Muslims.”
(Sharhey Muslim Vol 1 Page 55)

Without Wishing Well Faith Not Complete

Hazrat Anas Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu narrates that Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “You cannot be a true believer until you do not desire for your Muslim brother what you desire for yourself.”
(Bukhari vol 1 page 6, Muslim vol 1 page 50)

Blessings of Wishing Well For Others

Hazrat ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhuma narrates that Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “Muslims are brothers unto one another. They should not torment nor disgrace each other. The person
who remains busy in fulfilling the needs of his brother, Allah Ta’ala will fulfil his needs. The person who removes the difficulties of a fellow Muslim, Allah Ta’ala will remove one of his difficulties on the Day of Judgement. The person who hides the faults of his Muslim brother, Allah Ta’ala will hide his faults on the Day of Judgement.”(Bukhari & Muslim)

Respected readers! Look at the glorious glad tidings that are given for those who wish well for others and how much help wishing well for others will provide on the Day of Judgement. On that terrifying day, Allah Ta’ala will ease a person’s burdens on account of him wishing well for his fellow Muslims on the earth. Therefore, do not ever wish ill, always wish well for Muslims. Rather, do not even think ill thoughts for fellow Muslims and Insha Allah goodness and success will follow you always.

Muslims Are Walls for Each Other

Hazrat Abu Musa Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu narrates thatRasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “A Muslim is like a wall for another Muslim. Their bodies are strengthened by each other.”
(Bukhari vol 2 page 890, Tirmidhi vol 2 page 14)

Muslims are a Single Body

Hazrat Nau’maan bin Basheer Radiallaho Ta’ala ‘Anhu narrates that Rasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “The way that believers are merciful, friendly and loving unto each other, they are like a single body. When
one part of the body aches, the whole body is hurt and feels the pain.”
(Muslim vol 2 page 321)

Hazrat Nau’maan further states thatRasool Allah (Peace be upon him) said, “All believers are like a single body. When there is pain in the eye, the whole body will ache and if there is pain in the head, the whole body will feel the pain.” (Muslim Shareef vol 2 page 321)

May Allah Ta’ala guide us to always wish well for all, Aameen.
