Dealing with Accusations and Family Tension: Hajj and Greeting a Brother-in-Law

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I would like to know my husband’s brother has accused me of interfering in is life about 12 years ago. He accused me of all sorts of unbelievable things then also accused my husband saying he is aware of what I do. We have asked him to bring the proof of his accusations but till today he can’t. We haven’t spoken to him since but every now and again he comes up with something new that I apparently did. We have chosen to forget about him as we have tried to resolve the issue many times but he would not listen or believe us and cannot prove anything. We have been accredited for hajj this year. Insha-Allah we have every intention on going I would like to know what do we do in this case with regard to greeting him. I am afraid that should I be the better person and ask for maaf as to clearings conscience incase I have hurt him knowing or unknowingly he might use this against me and say that I did do all those bad things to him and now admitted it and asked for maaf. Also this has caused a split in my husband’s family with some believing me and some believing him. I really don’t know what to do, I have made so much of dua for Allah to clear my name from the accusations. Do I have to greet him and what does my husband do in this situation. Jazakallah


A: Don’t pay attention to all this. Carry on with your good intentions. May Allah Ta`ala grant you an accepted Hajj.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
