Jamaludeen Murtadah, a Lecturer at Markaz Agege Arabic and Islamic Training Centre, Lagos, has admonished Muslims against breaking family ties.
Murtadah, who gave the advice on Thursday, during his Ramadan Tafsir organised by Sheikh Alimi Foundation for Peace in Ilorin, said Allah has warned us against cutting the ties of kinship.
According to him, those who break the Covenant of Allah, after its ratification, and sever that which Allah has commanded to be joined by severing the bond of kinship and are not good to their relatives and work mischief in the land.
He said, “Allah has cursed them and they will be far away from Allaah’s Mercy and for them is the unhappy, evil is Hell.
“Islam calls for the upholding of the ties of kinship because of the great effect that this has on achieving social cohesion and perpetuating cooperation and love among Muslims”.
Murtadah urged Muslims to get closer to Allah and he would ease their hardship.
He noted that Allah would test the faith of all human with different adversity, adding that the advent of the Coronavirus pandemic across the world is a test, while urging adherent to turn to Allah.
He also frowned at some clerics in the country who are bent on disobeying government’s directives on social distancing.
According to him, government is not against any religion as the measures taken is to prevent spread of Coronavirus that is killing people on a daily basis.
Murtadah urged Muslims to pray for their leaders and depend on Allah in every adversity they come across.
