Believers among Themselves

Believers among Themselves

The Believers – men and women – are protecting friends and guardians to each other. They enjoin what is recognized as good by the Quran and forbid that which the Quran does not so recognise[1].

Whenever (unfortunately) two groups of the Believers fight one another, immediately make peace between them.  If one of the two groups again commits aggression against the other, you should (not be indifferent but) fight the transgressors until they return to the Divine Law.  Thereafter if they do return, make just and fair peace between them.  Always be just as according to Divine Laws this attribute is highly commendable[2].

All the Believers are brethren and as such when making peace between them, consider them as your brothers.  Your decision should be just and fair, according to the Divine Laws.  In this way you will continue receiving Allah’s Beneficence/ Rahmah[3].


[1] Al-Quran Surah 9: Verse 71

وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ وَالْمُؤْمِنَاتُ بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءُ بَعْضٍ يَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَيُقِيمُونَ الصَّلَاةَ وَيُؤْتُونَ الزَّكَاةَ وَيُطِيعُونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ أُولَٰئِكَ سَيَرْحَمُهُمُ اللَّهُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ عَزِيزٌ حَكِيمٌ

[2] Al-Quran Surah 49: Verse 9

وَإِن طَائِفَتَانِ مِنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ اقْتَتَلُوا فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَهُمَا فَإِن بَغَتْ إِحْدَاهُمَا عَلَى الْأُخْرَىٰ فَقَاتِلُوا الَّتِي تَبْغِي حَتَّىٰ تَفِيءَ إِلَىٰ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ فَإِن فَاءَتْ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَهُمَا بِالْعَدْلِ وَأَقْسِطُوا إِنَّ اللَّهَ يُحِبُّ الْمُقْسِطِينَ

[3] Al-Quran Surah 49: Verse 10

إِنَّمَا الْمُؤْمِنُونَ إِخْوَةٌ فَأَصْلِحُوا بَيْنَ أَخَوَيْكُمْ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُرْحَمُونَ
