Even If You Go Your Separate Ways…

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Even if you were to disagree with your brother or separate from him for whatever reason among worldly reasons, friendly relations [should still] be maintained and secrets [still] be kept.

That is more effective as an indication of the truthfulness of your real nature, the integrity of your heart, and your past sincerity to him.
