Fighting between Muslims

Sahih al-Bukhari | Chapter 2 Hadith 31 | Narrated Al-Ahnaf bin Qais

While I was going to help this man (‘Ali Ibn Abi Talib), Abu Bakra met me and asked, “Where are you going?” I replied, “I am going to help that person.” He said, “Go back for I have heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, ‘When two Muslims fight (meet) each other with their swords, both the murderer as well as the murdered will go to the Hell-fire.’ I said, ‘O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! It is all right for the murderer but what about the murdered one?’ Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) replied, “He surely had the intention to kill his companion.”
