Maintaining Good Family Relations
The Prophet Muhammad SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “Whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day, then let him be generous to his guest, and whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day, let him maintain the bond of kinship, and whoever believes in Allaah and the Last Day, let him say that which is good or observe silence.” [Al-Bukhaari]
Abu Ayyoob Al-Ansaari  RadiAllahu Anhu narrated: “A man said: ‘O Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, inform me of a certain deed that if I do it, I shall enter Paradise.’ He, Prophet Muhammad SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: Worship Allaah and Do not associate any thing with Him, Establish Prayer, Give Zakaah and Maintain bonds of kinship'”.
It is narrated by Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudhri RadiAllahu Anhu that the Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “Whoever desires for Allaah to multiply his provision and increase his age, he should maintain good relations with his kin”.
Even the company of those who mistreat their families and are cut off from them is accursed. ‘Abdullaah Ibn Abu ‘Awf RadhiAllahu Anhu narrated that, “One time we were sitting with the Prophet Muhammad SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam who said, `No one who cuts off his ties should sit with us.‘So a young man stood up from the crowd and went to visit his aunt, with whom he had some frictions, she then asked forgiveness for him, and he did the same for her, soon afterwards, he came back to our gathering circle, upon which the Messenger SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “The Mercy will not descend on people among whom there is a person who severs kin ties.”
The Messenger of Allaah SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam set for all humanity the greatest example of forgiveness and mercy after he conquered Makkah. The Makkans had tortured, killed, and humiliated Muslims for so long, and killed some of the dearest relatives of the blessed Prophet SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam himself. But the Nabi Muhammad SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam answered them by saying “I would say to you what Yoosuf said to his brothers: No reproach on you this day; May Allaah forgive you; He is the most Merciful of those who show mercy. Go free; you are all pardoned!” This incident never fails to bring tears to a Muslim’s eye.
In fact, any human being would be moved by such nobility and mercy to tears. No wonder ‘Aaishah RadiAllahu Anha when asked about the character of Prophet Muhammad SallAllaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said that his character was the Quran. Better yet Allaah bears witness that his Messenger stands on the highest plane of character. Allaah Says (what means): “And verily, you have an exalted standard of character.” [Quran 68:4]
