Salaam everybody.. What is compromise in Islam?... Does it mean that one has to lose in order that the other person will win in the case of two people? And if the person that loses the first time round, does that mean that the next time they will win or be more in favour of winning? And when does a compromise stop being a compromise? Cheers!!

Walaikum salaam, What exactly are you compromising on? If it deen your referring to, then there is no compromising. An nabi SAWS and the sahaabah wrestled, I never heard of a saying that any of them let the other win so that the next time they'd win. In a marriage there compromising times to a point. An bani SAWS said be careful who you marry your daughters to, because it is similar to slavery(I think this is close to the hadith). In another hadith it was said that the rights of the husband are greater than that of the wife. Still in another the wife is told that she must do as her husband commands(obviously within the folds of Islam). It is also shown in the Sunnah that a husband can consult with his wife and act on her suggestions. Islam is the middle path, so we shouldn't just let others win so that one day they'll scratch our back.
