Blessings of Solid Relations with Relatives


Despite great emphasis of traditions on establishing a proper and solid relation with relatives as a divine and human duty which requires ritual motivations, doing this divine and human duty surely will have great material blessings discussed below.

The main point is to establish a strong bound and keep it from falling apart by wrongdoings. You should be nice to relatives in time of happiness so that they may back you up in case of troubles. Getting over many life problems requires more than one person and who would be better for support than your relatives who know you well while blood relations bound them together?! Unfortunately, however, most of people make distance with their relatives in times of success and lose their support sources for troubling days. Beautiful words of the following traditions prove the same point:

Imam Sadiq (PBUH) says “meeting relatives and being good to neighbors will make homes and cities to flourish and extends lifetimes[1]”‌.
