Seeking forgiveness for being rude to someone

Q: I spoke rude to a Muslim brother and he is my friend also and he felt insulted. After I spoke to him and said “please accord with me if I said anything wrong” and lastly I said salam… but he replied nothing. He did not even reply to my salam. Am I a culprit in front of Allah? If yes, what I have to do the next I see him?


A: As long as you asked him for forgiveness, Allah Ta`ala will look at you favourably and forgive you.

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