IslamQA: Repenting from not speaking with a fellow Muslim for more than three days

what do you mean it is forbidden to not speak to a fellow Muslim for more than three days?? is it sunnah or is it written in quran?? how can i seek forgiveness?

It is an authentic hadith that says Muslims shouldn’t stop talking to other Muslims for more than three days. All you need to do is repent and try to reconcile with the person. If they refuse to reconcile, you don’t have to worry about since you have done your duty.

And God knows best.
