Umm Salamah said

“I was sitting with the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, when two men approached who had a dispute regarding the inheritance which involved old objects. At that, the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘I am a man, and those with a dispute come to me. Perhaps some of you are more eloquent in arguing their case than others, and I rule for that person based on what I hear from him. Therefore, if I rule in the favor of anyone at the expense of his brother’s right in anything, then they should not take from that, because it is a piece of hellfire.’ The two men cried, and each one of them said: ‘This right that I seek, it is for the other person (with whom he is disputing).’ The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam: ‘Since you did what you did, then divide [the items under dispute] between you and be just and fair. Then draw lots among you, then declare the dispute resolved as pertains to the other fellow.’”
