The importance of reconciling Muslims is emphasized in the Hadiths


THE IMPORTANCE OF RECONCILING MUSLIMS IS EMPHASIZED IN THE HADITHS

Adnan Oktar: The great importance of reconciling Muslims when they fall out, leading them to togetherness and peace, causing them to love one another and eliminating strife between them is emphasized in both verses and hadiths. That is God's command and the Sunnah of our Prophet (pbuh). Let us read some of those hadiths.

Ms. Ayşe: "O my people! Shall I tell you what is a more virtuous activity than pointless fasting and giving alms and prayer?” The people said, “Yes, O the Messenger of God.” The Prophet continued; "To reconcile two Muslims who have fallen out. Causing those believers to fall out is to whittle away at the faith.”

Ms. Müzeyyen: ''Do not fall out with one another. Do not envy one another. Do not sever relations with one another. O servants of God! Be brothers. It is a sin for a Muslim to abandon his brother for more than three days.''

Ms. Ebru: "He said, shall I show you something superior to fasting and prayer and giving alms?’
"Yes, O the Messenger of God," they said. The Prophet said, “It is to bring people together and reconcile them. I am not saying that disputes and fallings out will result in hair being pulled out, I am saying it will uproot and destroy the faith.”

Ms. Zeynep: ''It is a sin for a Muslim to abandon his brother in faith for more than three days and nights. When such falling out is encountered, the most auspicious is he who first says Salaam.”
Yasemin Ayşe Kiriş: ''Every Monday and Thursday, works are presented to God. God will forgive all those who do not ascribe equals to Him. But He will not forgive someone who falls out with his brother in faith and is not reconciled with him.”

Ms. Müzeyyen: 'Believers are like a single body when it comes to loving and feeling compassion and affection for one another. If one member suffers fever and sleeplessness, the other members will also suffer it.”

Ms. Ebru: ''The devotion of one believer to another is like a single building that binds all the components together.''

Adnan Oktar: Look, what does our Prophet (pbuh) say in the hadith? O my people! Shall I tell you what is a more virtuous activity than pointless fasting and giving alms and prayer?” The people said, “Yes, O the Messenger of God.” The Prophet continued; "To reconcile two Muslims who have fallen out. Causing those believers to fall out is to whittle away at the faith.”

Our Prophet says, “Do not fall out with one another.” That is a sin.
“Do not envy one another.” That is a sin.
“Do not turn your backs on one another.” That is a sin.
''Do not sever relations with one another.” That is also a sin.
''O servants of God! Be brothers,” he says. All Muslims are brothers.

''It is a sin for a Muslim to abandon his brother in faith for more than three days and nights,'' he says. Three days have long since passed. That is in Bukhari and Muslim. Since every believer has a duty to reconcile believers, and as a Muslim I discharge that responsibility. I strive to discharge that responsibility. Almighty God will either heed our prayer, or not. That is up to Almighty God. But we have a duty to discharge that observance.

" O my people! Shall I tell you what is a more virtuous activity than additional fasting and giving alms and prayer?” The people said, “Yes, O the Messenger of God.” The Prophet (pbuh) continued; "To reconcile people who have fallen out.” He says that is superior to prayer, fasting and giving alms. We pray, but he says it is superior to prayer. “Reconciling people.” That is what I strive to do. Our Prophet says, “It will uproot the faith.” He says that so it will stick in their minds. “I am not saying that disputes and fallings out will result in hair being pulled out, I am saying it will uproot and destroy the faith.” There will be no more faith, he says.

Chapter 56 of Tirmidhi. '' It is a sin for a Muslim to abandon his brother for more than three days.” He says it is a sin. What does that mean? Hell.

''When such falling out is encountered, the most auspicious is he who first says Salaam.'' He must not say, I am waiting for him to make the first move. The one who makes peace first is more auspicious. He earns more merit. One must go and make peace and embrace the person and make an alliance. Obstinacy and contrariness are no good.

“Every Monday and Thursday, works are presented to God. God will forgive all those who do not ascribe equals to Him.” Look, ascribing equals to God is an abomination, but Almighty God forgives strife. Masha’Allah, thanks to God. '' But He will not forgive someone who falls out with his brother in faith and is not reconciled with him.” Now someone has abandoned ascribing equals to God and has sins. He forgives him. Then other people come and He does not forgive them. Why? Because you were not reconciled with your brother, says Almighty God. Make peace, then come, He says. Then I will heed your prayer. But without reconciliation one is coming in a state of ascribing equals to God. Look, someone is then freed from such a dire condition as ascribing equals, and God forgives him. He says He will not forgive polytheism. Look, there is one more thing He does not forgive. Fragmentation. It is the same as ascribing equals to God. People have to be reconciled. Almighty God says He will not forgive until a person is reconciled with his brother in faith. That is in Muslim, and the Risale-I Nur. 'To love one another.” Almighty God notes the importance of love. He notes this by way of the Messenger of God. ''To feel compassion for one another.” Look, love first, then compassion. ''Then affection, a combination of love and compassion.” Do you see? First love, then compassion, then affection, a combination of the two. “Believers are literally like a single body.” Muslims are a single body with all other Muslims on earth. Someone may say, “Division is good.” But God says, “You must be like a single body, a single person.” You must have a brain, a leader, and the body must obey it. That is a wonderful metaphor. Look; ''Believers are like a single body. If one member suffers fever and sleeplessness, the other members will also suffer it.'' So when something happens in Afghanistan, all Muslims suffer. When a Muslim in Iraq suffers, all Muslims suffer. The chapter of Bukhari about alms. Chapter 65 of Muslim. ''The devotion of one believer to another is like a single building that binds all the components together.” How must Muslims be? Like a single building. Someone says that division is good. Why do you totally reverse the hadith of our Prophet? Division spells disaster. Division means strife. Division means misfortune and suffering. That is what the Qur’an and the hadiths say.
