Treating Your Relations

Imam Ali Reza (A.S.) says: “At times it so happens that if a man who does not have more than three years to live treats his kinsmen well and speaks affably with them Allah extends his age by thirty years (i.e. ten times). And Allah does what He likes”. (Usulul Kafi, p.383)

Imam Ja’far Sadiq(A.S.) says: “Treat your relations with compassion even if it be with a sip of water. The best thing with which you can maintain relationship is that you should protect your relatives from the cruelty and oppression of others. Observance of relationship postpones death and makes a man praiseworthy”. (Usulul Kafi, p.384)

Imam Muhammed Baqir, peace be on him, says: “Observance of relationship makes one’s actions sacred, averts calamities, increases wealth, prolongs one’s age, enhances the means of sustenance and a source of one’s becoming popular. So fear Allah and be kind to your relations”. (Usulul Kafi, p.384)

Imam Ali, peace be on him, says: “Hold your relatives dear because they are your wings with which you can fly and they are your roots to which you can return and they are your hands with which you can attack your enemies”. (Nahjul Balaghah, p.930)
