The meaning of “brother” in Islam

The word brother is used in two ways in Bukhari. The first meaning is an actual blood brother, sharing the same mother or father. The second meaning is another Muslim.
There are a total of 209 hadiths that refer to the word “brother” and of these 96 refer to being a blood brother. This leaves 209 – 96 = 113 hadiths about spiritual brotherhood.
This work is important since it means that pseudo-Golden Rule hadiths that say a Muslim is to love his brother does not apply to kafirs. Hence, the hadith is not a true Golden Rule, which is to treat ALL others as a brother. The kafir is outside the pseudo-Golden Rule. In Islam the Golden Rule is restricted to other Muslims.
BILL WARNER, Ph.D. is a highly respected expert on political Islam. In 2006, he founded the Center for the Study of Political Islam (CSPI) to further the study of the politics of the ideology of Islam and its ramifications for Western Civilization. Warner defines political Islam as that part of Islamic doctrine which concerns the non-Muslim.
Warner is the author of fifteen books, including the Amazon bestseller, Sharia Law for Non-Muslims, which is published in 20 languages. His Simple Koran is the first Koran that can be easily understood by integrating Mohammed’s life into the Koran verses. This method gives a context to the book which makes the meaning transparent. All his books are concise and easy to understand.
Warner has published numerous articles on the topic of Political Islam and is a prolific video blogger with over 150 videos dedicated to commentary and education on this subject. His video, “Why We Are Afraid”, has over four million views.
Warner has led seminars and given public talks throughout the United States and Canada, and internationally in Central Europe and the Balkan countries.
In 2013, he established CSPI International (CSPII), a volunteer, non-profit organization, based in Brno, Czech Republic, with affiliates around the globe. CSPII translates & publishes Warner’s books world-wide, provides trainings & lectures, and does research on political Islam.
Warner created the first self-study courses on political Islam. His books give an overview of the complete Islamic doctrine and address how the doctrine is applied to world events. CSPI books are also available as a web-based community learning platform.
Bill Warner holds a PhD in physics & applied mathematics from North Carolina State University. He has been a research scientist at the Sarnoff Princeton Labs, a business owner of an energy efficiency company and a university professor.
