He was CUT from the Mercy of Allah

His life was SHORTENED
and CORRUPTION was spread on Earth


All because he SEVERED the ties of kinship

Yes…it is that severe

Consider your house On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the peace and serenity, the closeness and connection, the love and sacrifice?

Consider your extended family. Do you recall the last time you spoke with that distant cousin, uncle or grandfather? Are you able to name all your cousins (or their children) with ease and fond memories? On both sides of the family?

فَهَلْ عَسَيْتُمْ إِن تَوَلَّيْتُمْ أَن تُفْسِدُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَتُقَطِّعُوا أَرْحَامَكُمْ
أُولَٰئِكَ الَّذِينَ لَعَنَهُمُ اللَّهُ فَأَصَمَّهُمْ وَأَعْمَىٰ أَبْصَارَهُمْ

So would you perhaps, if you turned away, cause corruption on earth and sever your [ties of] relationship?Those are the ones that Allah has cursed, so He deafened them and blinded their vision.
{Surat Muhammad: 22-23}

You want to change the world; then begin with its cornerstone. It’s time we Protect this House

 AlMaghrib Institute presents a single weekend seminar on the crucial yet oft-neglected topic:

Protect this House
The Muslim Family in the Modern World

Taught by Shaykh Yaser Birjas 


"Kinship (rahim) is derived from Allah (Ar-Rahmaan). If anyone maintains ties of kinship, Allah maintains ties with him. If anyone cuts them off, Allah cuts him off."
The Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam)
[al-Adab al-Mufrad]

Family conflict. Sibling rivalry. Spousal misunderstanding. Parenting clashes. And then some.

It all comes with the package. Family is a compilation of different personalities, interests and motivations – sometimes conflicting. You’re not the only one with a funny-looking family.

You probably fit in at least one of these categories: 

  • Have a brother or sister who just won’t take your advice
  • A parent that doesn’t understand your goals in life
  • A cousin or uncle you want to connect with but have nothing in common
  • A child that finds you outdated and boring
  • Or a spouse you wish you could be more open with

And if you’re one of the few that’s got it all going on, then imagine the added blessings of bringing your whole family to Protect this House.

In this seminar, you’ll learn the:

  •           Secrets to gaining your parents pleasure
  •           Tips & tricks to appeasing your siblings
  •           Blueprint to understanding your extended family
  •           Golden rules for winning the hearts of your spouse and in-laws
  •           Clues to children’s behaviour & upbringing
  •           Step-by-step plan to protecting your house


Everyone’s Got a Strange Cousin

It’s true. Somewhere in the family tree, there’s that one dude you don’t even know how to begin.

But even that guy has a right upon you.

فَآتِ ذَا الْقُرْبَىٰ حَقَّهُ وَالْمِسْكِينَ وَابْنَ السَّبِيلِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ لِّلَّذِينَ يُرِيدُونَ وَجْهَ اللَّهِ ۖ وَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ

So give the relative his right, as well as the needy and the traveler. That is best for those who desire the pleasure of Allah , and it is they who will be the successful.
{Surat Ar-Rum: 38}

Here are a few things you’ll finally clear up:

  •           Just who is your extended family?
  •           Is a 2nd cousin twice removed actually family?
  •           What is the order of priority in obedience and kindness?
  •           Where do my in-laws fit in this list of priority?
  •           What exactly is the right of the extended family upon me?
  •           The Fiqh of Relations & Challenges with respect to them.


You Try but They Push Away

So what’s the point of even trying?

"The one who maintains ties of kinship is not the one who reciprocates. The one who maintains ties of kinship is the one who, when his relatives cut him off, maintains ties of kinship."

 The Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wassalam)

[al-Adab al-Mufrad]
