📖Sahih al-Bukhari 5988
Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “The word ‘Ar-Rahm (womb) derives its name from Ar-Rahman (i.e., one of the names of Allah) and Allah said: ‘I will keep good relation with the one who will keep good relation with you, (womb i.e. Kith and Kin) and sever the relation with him who will sever the relation with you, (womb, i.e. Kith and Kin).
- This hadith is a saying of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), in which he explained the importance of maintaining good relationships with family and relatives. The term “Ar-Rahm” means “womb” in English, and it derives its name from one of Allah’s names, “Ar-Rahman” meaning “the Most Merciful”. The hadith emphasizes that maintaining good relationships with family and relatives is essential and that severing ties with them is a serious sin. Allah promises to maintain good relations with those who maintain good relations with their family and relatives and to sever ties with those who sever ties with them. Therefore, it is important to be kind and compassionate towards our family and relatives to earn Allah’s blessings and mercy.
Overall, this hadith emphasizes the importance of maintaining strong and healthy relationships with one’s family and relatives, as it is considered a means of earning Allah’s blessings and mercy.
