83. The Believers should not fight among themselves


Surah No. 49, Al Hujurat, Ayats No. 9 & 10

وَإِن طَائِفَتَانِ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ اقْتَتَلُوا فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَهُمَا فَإِن بَغَتْ إِحْدَاهُمَا عَلَى

الْأُخْرَى فَقَاتِلُوا الَّتِي تَبْغِي حَتَّى تَفِيءَ إِلَى أَمْرِ اللَّهِ فَإِن فَاءتْ فَأَصْلِحُوا

oبَيْنَهُمَا بِالْعَدْلِ وَأَقْسِطُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُقْسِطِينَ

o إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ

Translation :

If two parties among the Believers fall into fighting, then make peace between them: but if one of them transgresses beyond limit against the other, then you fight against that party which is transgressor until it complies with the command of Allah; when it complies, then make peace between them with justice, and be fair: for Allah loves those who are fair.

In fact, the Believers are brothers of each other (In Religion): So make peace and reconciliation between your two brothers: And fear Allah that you may receive Mercy.

Surah No. 90, Al Balad, Ayat No. 17

o ثُمَّكَانَ مِنَ الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ وَتَوَاصَوْابِالْمَرْحَمَةِ

Translation :

To be among those who are believers and enjoin patience on one another and enjoin kindness on one another.

Comments :

In our culture where people are faithful, there are two important componants viz :

a. To enjoin patience on one another .

The believers has to exercise patience in every step of his life. In the Holy book of Quran at several places Allah has decreed the believers to keep patience. The patiecnce is required in every worship of Allah, patience is required to keep away from the forbidden things, patience is required to keep away from all the bad evils and patience is required to keep away a believer from the lucrative things of this world.

b. To enjoin kindness or compassion on one another .

Our culture is to show kindness to others and not to torture and killing the innocents. Allah has sent the Prophet Mohammad (saws) to the people to be kind and he teaches the same to his followers.

Ahadis :

1. The Prophet said " Allah is not kind to those who are not kind to others " ( Bukhari and Muslim )

2. The Prophet Mohammad (saws) said " That person is not amongst us who is not kind to our youngsters and who does not pay respect to the elders. ( Tirmizi )
