Assalaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakaatuh


Have you ever fallen out with a family member over something only for it to last more than a few days, weeks, months or years?

Don’t let it go on any longer…why?


Because it was narrated from Jubair bin Mut’im that he heard the Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) say, the person who severs the bond of kinship will not enter paradise. (Hadith Sahih Bukhari)


“And those who break the Covenant of Allah, after its ratification, and sever that which Allah has commanded to be joined (i.e., they sever the bond of kinship and are not good to their relatives), and work mischief in the land, on them is the curse (i.e., they will be far away from Allah’s Mercy); And for them is the unhappy (evil) home (i.e., Hell).” (Quran 13:25)


So please no matter how big or small the argument is, sort it out before it’s too late. It doesn’t matter whose ‘fault’ it is
