Travel agreement broken

Question ID: 25597

. My question relates to muslim trust nowdays.

Myself and a muslim brother had a carpool/travel agreement in place. Prior to going on leave for holiday, we set up a schedule where weeks were swopped around to accomodate my leave. This was verbally agreed upon. when i returned from leave, i sms’d him to advise that i have returned and could he picked me up the next day. i got a reply : maaf,i have joined another lift club as my vehicle was giving me problems. not even a phonecall. this puts me in a very difficult position.

I think the term ‘Maaf’ is used very loosely to get out of sticky situations..

Was the the Brother wrong in what he did?

I feel betrayed. its not the question of travelling alone, but about trust in muslims today.

The brother is utterly wrong. Sadly these days even after signing on the dotted line, no honouring of trust is done. Have 'sabr'.
