copier a person who cuts relationships with their family for no reason. Or for dunya purposes because of money because of wealth because of some little misunderstanding you cut relations with those we made you related to when you're related to someone who chose that relationship. You didn't. Allah chose it. Allah says I'm gonna test you. That's why I made this person who is a tyrant, your father, Allah forgive us. May Allah not make us fathers who are tyrants. But even if your father is a tyrant, remember something?
Don't break relations unnecessarily. You don't break relation unnecessarily? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us understanding people ask, what about obedience to parents? obedience to parents within that which is reasonable, is a duty of Allah has placed on our shoulders. Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran has always told us to be kind to your parents, even if you disagree. The other day someone was telling me that, but isn't Allah said I'm not allowed to disagree with my father. He actually gave me money and he's sending me to buy something that was actually Haram. Let's not say what, it's a bit embarrassing. So what should I do? Isn't we're not allowed to disobey. I said,
Listen, you don't ever
be unkind to your folks, to your parents. But you can disagree. And you must disagree when they are wrong, when they're totally wrong. Look at all the prophets of Allah with their family members. A good example of Ibrahim alayhis salam, he said, Oh, my father, I disagree totally with what you're doing, but he said it respectfully. If the father got angry after that, it's not my problem.
