[Q-ID0813] My father is telling me to cut ties with my sister, what shall I do?

0 16


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)



What do the scholars of the Dīn and muftīs of the Sacred Law state regarding the following issue: If my father tells me to sever ties with my sister, then what should I do?

Questioner: Usman from UK


بسم اللہ الرحمن الرحیم
الجواب بعون الملک الوھاب اللھم ھدایۃ الحق والصواب

It is Harām [unlawful] for one to sever ties with one’s daughter, as showing compassion, mercy & kindness [amongst relatives] is Fard, and in this matter it would be impermissible to fulfil the father’s wishes in this matter because it has been mentioned in Hadīth that it is not permissible to obey creation by disobeying the Creator. Hence, it is a must that you do not sever ties with your sister; rather, you should try explaining to your blessed father that he shouldn’t say to do such things.
