Estranged relations

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Sahih Muslim Hadith 6212 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Umar

Allah's Messenger (saws) said: It is not permissible for a Muslim to have estranged relations with his brother (believer) beyond three days.


Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 1128 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Abbas

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: There are three people whose prayer does not ascend beyond their heads, even to the length of a span: the person who leads people in prayer despite their disapproval; a woman who spends the night (in a state) in which her husband is annoyed with her; and the two brothers (believers) who are estranged.


Sahih Muslim Hadith 6222 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah

Allah's Messenger (saws) said: The gates of Paradise are not opened but on two days, Monday and Thursday, and every servant (of Allah) is granted pardon who does not associate anything with Allah except the person in whose (heart) there is rancour against his (believing) brother. And it would be said: Leave them until there is reconciliation; leave them until there is reconciliation; leave them until there is reconciliation. In a similar hadith narrated by Suhayl the words are: Those who boycott each other would not be granted pardon.


It is not lawful for a believer, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, to remain estranged with his believing brother for a period of more than three days; and it is the duty of the other believers to strive their utmost to reconcile and make peace between their two estranged brothers.


Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 49 Surah Hujuraat verse 10:

10 The believers are but a single brotherhood: so make peace and reconciliation between your two (estranged) brothers: And fear Allah that ye may receive Mercy.


Although the guidance of Islam is to always speak and say nothing but the truth, the Messenger of Allah (saws) said that even if one had to invent or forge something or say a lie in their effort to reconcile the differences between two estranged believers, one would not be considered a liar in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!


Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.857 Narrated by Um Kulthum bint Uqba

That she heard Allah's Messenger (saws) saying, "He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar."


Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4902 Narrated by Umm Kulthum bint Uqbah al-Umawiyyah

The Prophet (saws) said: He who fabricated (something) in order to put things right between two persons did not lie. The version by Ahmad ibn Muhammad and Musaddad states the the Prophet (saws) declared: The liar is not the one who puts things right between people, saying what is good and increasing good.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
