Prohibition of Pointing with a Weapon at another Brother in Faith

1783. Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “None of you should point at his brother with a weapon because he does not know that Satan may make it lose from his hand and, as a result, he may fall into a pit of Hell-fire (by accidentally killing him).”
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

The narration in Muslim is: Abul-Qasim (i.e., the Messenger of Allah) (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) said, “He who points at his (Muslim) brother with a weapon is cursed by the angels even if the other person should be his real brother.”

1784. Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) prohibited from presenting a drawn sword to another.”
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].
