(In the name of Allah, the most Beneficient, the most Merciful)

Worldly attactractions confine human life to this world. Here there are so many relatives lide father,mother, brothers, sesters, gradfathers, grandmpthers, uncles and aunts and there many more from the marital side. After performing the duty towards parents, these relatives have got the right to get co-opration and well treatment from us.

In Islamic livelihood there are instructions to observe the rights of these relatives properly. About this it is said in the Holy Quran :
“you perform your duty towards your relatives.” (Sura Bani Israil: 26)

Allah has ordered us to behave well with them.
It has been emphasized in the Holy Quran that one should remain conscious about the rights and duties of one’s relatives. : About it Allah says: “they are the true religious people who, inspite of their fascination for wealth, give gifts to the relatives.” (Sura Al-Baqara:117)
About giving gifts to close relatives the Prophet (Sm) says:
“two purposes are served if close relatives are given gifts. One is to maintain relationship with them and the other is to fulfill the objective of giving gifts.”
So, giveng gifts to the people of distant relations without paying any heed to the near relatives is disliked by Allah. Thus the first and foremost duty of a person is to give gifts to the near relatives.
The Prophet (Sm) says about those who break relationship with relatives: “one, who severs relationship with their relatives, will not enter into heaven.”

Allah and the Prophet (Sm) have order human beings to maintain relationship with the relatives. Those who do not maintain it, will have to face great disasters. They will be deprived of the blessings of Allah here, and they will have to face severe punishment in hell in the life hereafter.
So to get blessings of Allah by escaping Allah’s curse, we should do our duties towards our kith and kin. But under on circumstance any type of injustice or partiality should be done. So with out exceeding the limits dictated by Islam we should try to observe the rights and duties of our relatives.
