The Value of a Muslim
لَزَوَالُ الدُّنْيَا أَهْوَنُ عَلَى اللهِ مِنْ قَتْلِ مُؤْمِنٍ بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ
“The wiping away of the World means less to Allah than a Believer to be killed unjustly” (Sunan Ibn Majah)
Abdullah bin Umar said – I saw the Prophet doing tawwaf around the Ka’aba saying “How sweet/ good are you and how sweet is your scent. How great are you and how great is your sanctity. By the One in whose Hand is the soul of Mohammad, the sanctity of a believer is greater with Allah than your sanctity” (Sunan Ibn Majah)
Though the Ka’aba is considered the greatest Islamic symbol present, with the Muslims all over the world turning their faces toward it five times daily, and with the prayer inside it has more reward than anywhere else, the sanctity of the blood of a single believer is worth more to Allah سبحانه وتعالى than the sanctity of this first house built to worship Allah سبحانه وتعالى.
Since the blood of a single believer is worth more to Allah سبحانه وتعالى than the Ka’aba, and in fact more than the whole Earth and what is in it, then it is upon the Muslims to place the same priority upon the blood of their brothers and sister, and treat the violation of that sanctity as worse than open aggression against the Ka’aba.
