Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
Do not desert
(stop talking to) one another, do not nurse hatred towards one another, do not be jealous of one another, and become
as fellow brothers and slaves of Allah. It is not lawful for a Muslim to stop talking to his brother (Muslim) for more
than three days
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]
'' means to terminate contacts and speech. All the things mentioned in this Hadith are
prohibited for the reason that they go against the spirit of Muslim brotherhood. Muslims are ordained to maintain the
bond of Islamic fraternity.

Abu Ayyub Al-Ansari (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
It is not
lawful for a Muslim to desert (stop talking to) his brother beyond three nights, the one turning one way and the other
turning to the other way when they meet, the better of the two is one who is the first to greet the other
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
1. Since Islam is a religion based on the nature of man, it has a suitable concession in all his natural affairs. When
there occurs a dispute between two Muslims then unpleasantness and contraction of mind are bound to result from it.
In such a situation they naturally do not like to speak or maintain contact with each other. Islamic Shari`ah has
acknowledged the validity of this reaction and granted permission to the party to suspend speech for three days.
Since longevity of suspension of contact leads to severe hatred and animosity which increases dissension in society,
creates obstruction in family relations and injures the bond of friendship, Muslims have been ordered not to let this
temporary unpleasantness and turbidity go beyond a period of three days.
2. By highlighting the merit of Salam (
), this Hadith has prescribed an easy way for resuming the relations
because Salam increases mutual love and paves the way for conversation and reconciliation.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
People's deeds
are presented before Allah on Mondays and Thursdays, and then every slave (of Allah) is granted forgiveness (of
minor sins) if he does not associate anything with Allah in worship. But the person in whose heart there is rancour
against his brother, will not be pardoned. With regard to them, it is said twice: `Hold these two until they are
To entertain enmity without any major lawful reason is akin to inviting the displeasure of Allah. May
Allah save us from it.
