Fighting and Swearing at Muslims

Fighting and Swearing at Muslims

Q. What does the Shariah say about a Muslim brother who fights, swears and charges a fellow Muslim brother with the SAPS?

A.  We are not aware of the circumstances of the dispute. Nevertheless, to fight and swear Muslims for base motives and out of wickedness are haraam and severely punishable. If a dispute develops between two Muslim brothers then the Qur’aan instructs us to settle the matter with Muslim-arbitration. The party refusing to allow for a Muslim-arbitration process is condemned in the Qur’aan.
