Hadith Explanation

Pointing a Weapon at a Muslim

Rasul Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: "Whoever points a piece of iron at his brother, the angels curse him." [Jami At-Tirmidhi - graded sahih]

Pointing a piece of iron, such as a knife, dagger, sword, or gun at a Muslim, even in play, has the effect of creating discomfort and fear. It also puts the person in danger should the weapon accidently fire or hurt him/her. It is haraam for a Muslim to frighten another Muslim unnecessarily, or put them at risk. This is what we can understand from being told that the angels curse him who points a weapon at another Muslim.
