Avoiding problems

Q: Please advise if what I did was wrong.

My family had a quarell so I was asked to explain what happened? I spoke the truth. Now, my granny says I'm wrong for speaking the truth. It hurts because I thought speaking the truth is the right thing to do.

A: The way of the pious is to avoid areas of trouble. If you know that in you saying some things it will cause problems and complications then avoid it, unless it is someone's basic right that is being trampled.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
