Assalamualaikum and welcome to episode number two from this series in which we'll be discussing selected narrations from email and bodies and other different in today's episode we're going to be talking about maintaining Family Ties or family relationships with those who have cut us off.

00:00:18--> 00:00:20

In narration number 68. In

00:00:21--> 00:01:03

Abdullah bin Rama narrates that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, les said while Sulu bill McAfee well I can never while saying another either kuti Antara haimo was Allah verse Adam said the one who maintains Family Ties is not the one who only reciprocates rather, the one who maintains Family Ties is the one who if they are cut off, they mend or they fix that relationship. So first off, maintaining Family Ties or family relationships is a very important part of our faith. It has been emphasized in the Quran and the son know quite a bit. For example, the person who sent him said as as mentioned sahid Bahati men can you know, Billa, he went Yeoman Valley Elson rahima, meaning

00:01:03--> 00:01:39

the one who believes in Allah and the final day that they should maintain their ties of kinship or their family ties, not only have we been commanded to keep family ties, there's actually severe warnings against breaking family ties. So from this heading, we learned that it is not enough for us to maintain family ties with those relatives of ours who maintain ties with us. Like, if you reach out to me, then I'll reach out to you if you make an effort, then I'll make an effort. Or you may hear someone say they never call me. So I'm not going to call them or they never visit me, I'm not going to visit them, they never give me any gifts. So I'm not going to give them any gifts. Rather,

00:01:39--> 00:02:19

part of maintaining family ties in Islam is to also make an effort with those who don't make an effort towards us. Not only that, if someone has cut off ties with us, we make the effort to mend or fix those ties or those relationships. Now, there's a couple of things that I want to clarify. First of all, what this means is that we try our best because some relationships, no matter how much we try, they cannot be fixed. But we still have to try, we cannot give up on those broken relationships. Basically, the point here is that we are responsible for the effort, we're not necessarily responsible for the result. So we have to keep trying, even if it doesn't yield the

00:02:19--> 00:03:04

result of the relationship being fixed. Second, this does not apply to a relationship that is harmful. If we are being harmed, then islamically we do not maintain or mend this relationship, especially if we're talking about abuse, that is a very different matter. I want to be very clear, we do not keep ourselves in an abusive relationship. As a matter of fact, if one has the ability to they should get out of that abusive relationship. And if they don't have the ability, then they should try to seek the help of those who may be able to help them also I'll add to that, that if someone comes to us for help to get out of an abusive relationship, we have to help them and also we
