One of the greatest gifts Allah has given us is that he made us into families. Dear beloveds, if you are fortunate enough to have family, then stay connected to them as Allah has commanded. If you have parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, cousins, brothers, sisters, children, husbands, wives, step kids, or by marriage, then my advice is to keep ties with them, love them, do good to them and by them, make amends with them, forgive them, pray for them, pray with them and fear Allah regarding them. Never ever cut family ties, no matter what. Family is everything.Click on the link above to listen to the khutba.
