A tip to reconcile between people’s conflicting hearts

Here is a Quranic verse that guides us to a tip that we can use immediately to reconcile between those people
who have enmity and hatred toward each other. First, a little background. During the prophet’s time, Aws and
Khazraj were two warring tribes in Yathrib (now called Medina). Approximately, couple of years before their
acceptance of Islam the two clans were hard core enemies and had enormous levels of enmity and hatred for
each other. During one of the battles (Battle of Bu’ath) both tribes seemed set to annihilate each other.The Aws
were supported by the Jewish tribes of Banu Nadir, Banu Qurayza, and by the Arab Bedouins of the Muzayna
tribe. The Khazraj on the other hand were supported by other local Bedouin tribes. During the battle, the Aws and
their allies initially had to retreat, but then they counterattacked and defeated the Khazraj. During the battle, the
leaders of both forces were killed.

However, after their acceptance and embracing of Islam, both tribes developed feelings of strong love and
brotherhood for each other. This unity developed despite their history and long-standing traditions of mutual
enmity. Sheikh Moududi states in his tafseer that to have such severe enmity turn into deep cordiality and
brotherhood within a quite short span of time and to have such enemies unite together so closely was doubtlessly
beyond the power of any mortal. Were anyone to depend on worldly factors alone, it would have been
impossible to bring about such an achievement. The prophet (s) and his companions witnessed this miracle
of Allah when the hearts of two warring factions came together with mutual feelings of love, brotherhood, and
Allah says in the Quran:

“and joined their hearts. Had you given away all the riches of the earth you could not have joined their
hearts, but it is Allah Who joined their hearts. Indeed He is All-Mighty. All-Wise. Quran (Surah Al-Anfal:
The simple yet powerful lesson we can take from this verse is that in cases when there is a need to reconcile
between the hearts of two Muslims (or parties), we should sincerely pray to Allah, as He alone can guide our
hearts. This tip may seem simplistic but a sincere Dua can bring harmony and love to the hearts of the warring
parties more than any other worldly tactic. Whether its hatred between two friends, brothers, spouses, or any
other family members, a sincere Dua to Allah will surely bring results faster and reconcile between their hearts
more than any other ingenious plans.

You can also use the following Dua that the prophet (s) used to help remove feeling of bitterness from our hearts.

. The few things I’ve read in the Quran were beautiful. and grace conquer all. Accepting or rejecting Islam is a serious matter. simply. As for the example of the two tribes.. the Prophet (pbuh) who could have resolved their disputes fairly.Hi Gene Accepting Islam is not a precondition to have peace with followers of Islam.. may Allah guide us and make it easy for us and bless you too.very useful . being enemy to each other would to a minimum lower their faith level to a very low level. So one has to carefully understand what Islam is about.. effective and inspiring. it is very informative. This life will be either hell or heaven. On the international level. REP LY 31Noorudeen Jazakallah khairan. To be God centered or not is an individual matter. he/she should accept Islam – should not reject because of society pressures or because of the religion that one got from their forerfathers. REP LY 30fatima Jazakallah khairan. And of course. If after understanding that appeals to somebody. REP LY 29Gene Thanks Khaik! Good is good. love . At individual level you can see many muslims and non-muslims being good friends. when they turned to Islam they had one common leader. May peace. hegemony and desire to have empires. religion taught them that they were now brothers. Why? Because Islam tells about a life hereafter – everlasting. At different times. Even one does not have to be ‘God centered’ for this purpose. we have to think about justice (which is again preached by religion). REP LY . So instead of looking to religion for peace. Conflict has to do something with injustice. you can see many examples of non muslim and muslim countries’ friendship – even those who do not believe in God and Muslims. different nations have done that and are doing even now.

I really needed this dua. REP LY 34Khadijah bint Yahya Dear Gene. Zakari Innal Laha ala kulli shai’in kadiiran! Jazakumullahu khairan.

we need to offer this prayer on daily basis to reconcile among Muslim Ummah all over the world and our neighbors as well. I found out that he’s been cheating on me and he still hasn’t stopped even though I’ve asked him many times to leave made my difficulty easy. even when I’m not praying but whatever I say or do hasn’t changed his mind.. JazakAllah khairan. I pray everyday and make dua everyday. It’s been a while since he’s been sleeping else where in the house and slowly he’s destroyed my heart. Please I beg anyone that is reading this to make a dua for my family. Inshallah by then allah opens up his eyes. I’ve been asking him to start to pray but he won’t even do that. REP LY 44aiman dawood jazakAllah I just loved this subhan Allah. aslamalaykom I have been struggling very hard the last year to save my family from being broken. I’ve been fighting for so long that I’m starting to think what’s the point anymore especially since it’s only one sided.very influencing article it is REP LY 45Sarah Dear brothers and sisters.REP LY 43Mustapha Emigi salam. I have two small children and to be separated or divorced I feel would be so hard on everyone especially my children. I pray for allah to open up his eyes and inshallah he doesn’t make a stupid move that will he will regret.. REP LY 46Eric Christopher Foo . My husband of 5 years wants to divorce me and I’m truly devastated and want nothing but for him to stay. My husband has said that within this week he’s going to ask for a divorce from the sheik. I have written before but I am still fighting and at this point i want to give up.

I do see parallels between the two. though my Muslim and Christian friends may not agree with me. God is love and so are we. The significance of reconciliation is the basis of these scriptures in the first place. I have taken a keen interest in Islam.
