Brothers Can Disagree

The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “I guarantee an abode on the boundary of Paradise for him who gives up a quarrel, even if he is right.” [Abu Dawud]

The scholar Yunus as-Sadafi (rahimahumAllah) said: “I have never seen a wiser man than (Imam) ash-Shafi’ee. I was arguing with him once about an issue and I left him. Then one day, he met me, held my hand and said, ‘Cannot we be brothers, even if we disagree about something?’”
