Have fear of the One by whose Name you swear to settle your differences and have respect for your relatives.
Allah certainly keeps watch over you.
Jumma Mubarak!

The Messenger of Grace (s.a.w.) pointed out to the importance of family ties centuries ago. He diligently abided by the relationships he had with his family, his relatives, and his circle. He always looked after them and never neglected his responsibility towards them.
Our Prophet always manifested his loyalty with sincerity and fondness at every opportunity.
Jumma Mubarak!

One of the most significant values in our religion is family ties which means maintaining our relationship with our family and relatives.
It means sharing their joy and sorrow and acting as a safe port for one another.
It means lending them a helping hand when they need it and letting them up when they fall down.
It means relieving our mind and soul with the compassion, mercy, and fondness of one another when we get tired of the daily concerns of the world.
Jumma Mubarak!

It does not mean just keeping in touch with relatives who have not severe their ties with us.
The real essence of family ties is being able to give a call to those who never call you, and visit those who never visit you.
The real dignified thing to do is to be able to do favors to those who have never done any favors to you.
Jumma Mubarak!

A companion approaches the Prophet and says: “O Messenger of Allah! I try to keep in touch with my relatives but they never contact me.
I do them favors but they wrong me. I treat them warmly but they treat me with rudeness.”
Then, the Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.) tells the companion that his relatives are at fault and says: “Allah will assist you as long as you keep up your attitude.
Jumma Mubarak!

We are getting dragged into experiencing joy, sorrow, existence, absence only by ourselves in cities where millions live.
We share the same building with dozens or even hundreds of people, yet we get lonelier every passing day. Our houses may be getting bigger, but our hearts are getting just as smaller.
There are many parents, abandoned to loneliness, who desperately wait for their beloved children to show up one day.
There are many relatives waiting for a call from anyone to ask them how they are.
There are many sorrowful, destitute people close to us who are looking forward to getting troubles off their chest even a little.
There are many neighbors who desperately need a greeting, a sincere smile, warmth, and fondness.
Jummaa Mubarak!

Let us not neglect family ties, a means of getting into paradise. Let us please the hearts of our parents.
Keep in touch with our children, our close and distant relatives, and our neighbors. And let us ask this to ourselves: If we do not set an example for our children, who will they learn from about the beauty of respecting and serving elders? How will they know that one’s joy gets even bigger when you share it with family, it eases one’s sorrow to share it with family?
