“The faithful, in their love for one another and in their having mercy for one another and in their kindness toward one another, are like one body; when a member of it ails, all (the parts of) the body call one another (to share the pain) through sleeplessness and fever.” (Muslim).
Individual and Collective responsibility is the cornerstone of Islam. Every Muslim is accountable to his Creator for what he himself does or fails to do as well as for others for whom he may be accountable and for things that he has control over.

Bro. Idris Ismail– a teacher and an Orator, while talking on the topic- *COOPERATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY (CSR)* on the program Talk Islam alongside the presenter Abdurasaq Olayode aka philosopher king on Jordan 93.9 FM said the immediate moral and social responsibility in the community or society, is the provision of basic amenities in it and ensuring a Community filled with peace and tranquility. The goodness of a child he said is the goodness of the society/Community.
Cooperate social responsibility he said is all about the input of an individual in the society/Community to make sure that it is actually driving towards the goal for which it has been established. The rich and well to do individual should as much as possible form a cluster in helping the needy in the community they belong and extend their hands to others that may require their help.
The Muslims have missed their way because they are strangers to the Qur’an. They interact with the Qur’an annually (during Ramadhan). They need to get back on track and go back to the Qur’an… May Allah rectify our ways and ease for us our affairs.
