Hadith on Family: The truly righteous are good to those who sever relations with them

October 3, 2012

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “The one who keep good relations with his family is not the one who recompenses the good done to him. Rather, the one who keeps good relations with his family is the one who continues to be good to them despite having been cut off by them.”
