Allah Says in the Holy
Quran Chapter 13 Surah Ar-Raad verse 25:
As for those who break
their covenant with Allah after confirming it, who cut asunder
relationships which Allah has bidden to be joined, and spread chaos on
the earth, their’s shall be the curse,

Allah Says in the Holy
Quran Chapter 2 Surah Bakarah verse 27:
And He leads astray only
those who disobey Allah, who break
Allah’s covenant after ratifying it, who cut asunder relationships what
Allah has ordered to be joined, and who produce chaos on the

Hadith 8.17 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet (saws)
said, "The word 'Ar-Rahm (womb) derives its name from Ar-Rahman (i.e., one
of the names of Allah) and Allah said: 'I will keep good relation with the one
who will keep good relation with you (the womb, i.e. kith and kin), and sever

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chatper 49 Surah Hujuraat verse 10:
10 The believers are but a single brotherhood: so make peace
and reconciliation between your two (contending) brothers: And fear
Allah that ye may receive Mercy.
Not only is it permissible in Islam for one to strive to
make peace between two estranged or contending brothers, it is a duty the Lord
Most High has laid upon the believers to do so!
Although the guidance of Islam is to always speak and say
nothing but the truth, the Messenger of Allah (saws) said that even if one had
to invent or forge something or say a ‘lie’ in their effort to reconcile the
differences between two estranged believers, one would not be considered a liar
in the Sight of Allah Subhanah!
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 3.857 Narrated by Um Kulthum bint Uqba
That she heard Allah's Messenger (saws)
saying, "He who makes peace between the people by inventing good
information or saying good things, is not a liar."
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4902 Narrated by Umm Kulthum bint Uqbah
The Prophet (saws) said: “He who forged in
order to put things right between two persons did not lie.” The version by
Ahmad ibn Muhammad and Musaddad states the the Prophet (saws) declared: “The
liar is not the one who puts things right between people, saying what is good
and increasing good.”
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only
due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me
alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is
the Only Source of Strength.
