His Eminence, the preacher Abdullah Muhammad al-Ni’mah, said during the Friday sermon he delivered at the Imam Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab mosque: Islam has taken great care of the good treatment of relatives and kinship, and urged and desired this, and exaggerated in praising those who are close to their kin and relatives, and arranged for that great rewards, many great virtues, and high ranks. Which only the deprived, the disadvantaged, the loser neglects.
He praised those who are responsible for the rights of relatives and wombs, and warned against leaving them or underestimating them because of their greatness, the majesty of their destiny, and their impact on man. Ali ibn Abi Talib, may God be pleased with him, “Those are your clan, with whom you reach out, and with them a lengthy period in times of adversity. Be generous to them, treat them poorly, and ease their distress, and let not your family be the most miserable of people with you.” Al-Nawawi said, “Kindship is kindness to relatives according to the condition of the one who is connected and the one who is connected. With money, sometimes with service, sometimes with visitation, peace, and so on.” Others said, “It is kindness to relatives of bloodlines and in-laws, kindness to them, kindness to them, and care for their conditions, as well as if they are far away or offended, and severing the ties of kinship is against all of that.” Scholars say: There is no dispute that kinship ties are obligatory. In general, cutting it off is a great sin, and the hadeeths testify to this.
Al-Khatib added that there is nothing greater or more terrifying than that she comes on the Day of Resurrection complaining about the one who connected and cut her off, as the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, urged to preserve lineages, not to brag about them or brag about their people, but rather to uphold the ties of kinship and know the relative. Al-Hakim narrated with an authentic chain of transmission on the authority of Ibn Abbas, may God be pleased with him. God, on their behalf, said: The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: Close your lineages and uphold your ties of kinship, for there is no distance from the womb if it is near, even if it is far away, and there is no distance from it if it is far away, even if it is close. And he has to sever it if he cut it off, but rather supplicate and seek refuge in God Almighty against whoever connected it or cut it off, so the reward is of the kind of work, as it was proven in the two Sahihs from the hadith of Aisha, may God be pleased with her, who said: The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “The kinship is attached to the throne saying: He who reaches out to me, connects him.” God, and whoever cuts me off, God will cut him off.”
And he explained that the connection of kinship and relatives is the slogan of faith in God Almighty and the Last Day. In the hadith agreed upon, the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said, “And whoever believes in God and the Last Day, let him uphold his ties of kinship.” Al-Hakim, with an authentic chain of transmission, on the authority of Ibn Abbas, may God be pleased with them, that he said: The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “God populates people’s homes and produces wealth for them. He said: By their connection to their kinship. O he who said the blessing of his money, his condition worsened, and his goodness went away. Look at your connection with your wombs and relatives. Imam Ahmad narrated with a good chain of narrators from the hadith of Ali, may God be pleased with him, that the Prophet, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “Whoever is pleased to extend his life to him And Jesus is for him in his sustenance and protects him from an evil death, so let him fear God and pray for his mercy.
Al-Khatib added: The kinship relationship is one of the great morals that the Arabs used to praise during the Jahiliyyah before Islam, and praise its companions. The masters of the Arabs during the Jahiliyyah, all of the Arabs boasted of saying:
What is between me and my father’s children and my cousins is very different
If they ignite the fire of war with their arm.. I will ignite them in every honorable rig
And if they eat my flesh, I will save theirs.. And if they destroy my glory, I will build glory for them
I do not bear the old hatred against them.. And the leader of the people is not like the one who bears hatred.
Al-Nemah noted that we find in societies groups of the heedless who turn away from God’s grace and reward, among whom kinship severance spread and the rights of relatives were lost. On it, hatred, envy, and hatred arose between them because of money, inheritance, or share. Look, O God bless you, how the predecessors of this nation did and what they said about the right of the relative in terms of money and luck from the world. Someone said to him: O Abu Muhammad, if he is close to me in wealth, he said: On the authority of someone who is richer than you.
And this Saeed bin Al-Musayyib, may God have mercy on him, says, and he left dinars: “Oh God, you know that I only collected them to preserve my religion and my sufficiency.
And Al-Nima affirmed that the slave is rewarded for his connection, even if his relatives and relatives cut him off. In Al-Bukhari, on the authority of Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-Aas, may God be pleased with them, he said: The Messenger of God, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, said: “The one who connects is not equivalent, but the one who connects. In it there is a great reward and reward with God in the connection of the womb and a visit to a relative.
