Pearl of Wisdom
'No sooner do two men who forsake each other part than one of them becomes deserving of disassociation [by Allah] and curse, and both of them may become deserving of it'. Mu'attab said to him, may Allah sacrifice me for your sake, this is for the one who wronged, but what about the one who was wronged?' He said, 'Because he does not call his brother to reconciliation and does not forgive him for what he said. I heard my father say, 'When two people dispute with each other and one overcomes the other, the one who has been wronged should return to his friend and says to him ?O brother I am the one at fault', to cut the desertion between them, for Allah Almighty is a Desertion Just Judge, and will take the right of the wronged one from the wronger.'
Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Ibid. v. 2, p. 344, no. 1
