*Ramadan series – Day 6*
The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever would like his rizq (provision) to be increased and his life to be extended, should uphold the ties of kinship.”
(Bukhari and Muslim)
The messenger of Allah connected a persons provisions to them keeping the family ties. And we know that the prophet peace be upon him does not speak except that it is a revelation from Allah. Thus when the messenger says something we know and affirm that it is the truth.
We generally think we need to get the best grades in everything, go to best universities and get the best jobs, and therefore attain alot of money and by all means aim for that. But we forget that simply upholding family ties increases our provisions.
Ramadan is a time in which families and Friends get together. So what better time than now to make it a habit of upholding the family ties. It’s like Allah is rewarding you for simply loving your family and taking a part in your family.
