Problem between brothers

*Question:*

There have been problems between 2 brothers. They have not been speaking much since 5 years. Now when they come to sort it out with their mother , all mistakes are showed towards one even though both are responsible. Then the mom tells them to forget and move on. What should one do in this ?

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْم

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful


*Answer:*


Ultimate Justice will only be in the Hereafter. The brothers should let go of their rights and the mistakes of other for the sake of Allah SWT. Allah SWT mentions in Surah Nur ayat 22 to Abu Bakr RA who was rightfully displeased at his nephew for making up lies against his daughter. So, Abu Bakr RA swore not to help him financially. Then Allah SWT revealed this verse saying, “The men of grace and wealth among you should not swear against giving (their charitable gifts) to the kinsmen and the poor and to those who have migrated in the way of Allah, and they should forgive and forego. Do you not like that Allah forgives you? Allah is Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful.”


We have sinned and wronged ourselves more in the Sight of Allah SWT. If we want Allah SWT to overlook our mistakes and faults, we must overlook the mistakes and faults of those around us. Forgive and forget. Both brothers should overlook the mistakes and move on to make a new and better relationship.


Only Allah knows best
