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  • A child that finds you outdated and boring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]

"Alhamdulilah I have to say for me personally this has been one of the best AlMaghrib seminars I have was something I had been thinking about for a very long time, and had been striving to gain knowledge in this area. This seminar is an excellent guide on how to live your family life according to the correct and Islamic way. Where to some extent we all might have the knowledge of the Islamic way but by being caught up in this duniya we might tend to forget what that really is and not really live family life as it should be lived. This seminar is a great reminder of that and brings you back to reality and allows one to refocus on what is really important, and that is to make our akhirah by consciously leading an Islamic way of life in all family matters. The seminar which is about family is universal to all ages and anyone can gain immensely benefit from this whether you are a child, a young adult, single, married, parents, you name it, and if given the opportunity to attend this seminar, I highly recommend it. No. It is a MUST! I couldn't be more grateful to Allah SWT for allowing me the opportunity to attend this seminar and may Allah SWT give immense reward to the creators of this seminar. Ameen."

"I learned to appreciate my mother more, when is best to have more kids, don't use the Quran and sunnah against anyone in getting your rights specially with your spouse because that's a red flag to your relationship, what school to send your kids private vs public and how to make them memorize the Quran. I totally recommend this course for parents and single people the future parents." 

- Mastooreh Naseri, Winnipeg


"Alhamdulilah this is by far the most practical course I have taken thus far! I cannot stress enough to everyone I know, that if you have children or are planning to "start" having children you must take this course - it will greatly benefit you insha'Allah. It teaches you how to raise your children in the recommended way of our Prophet (saw), the Companions, and Righteous Predecessors. Masha'Allah, the shaykh is very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject as if he taught it for years... the class time went by so fast because of how amazing the class was! MUST TAKE!" 

- Baker Assaf, Toronto


"Ever since I've taken this class, I've been saying this to everyone: " This class should be made mandatory upon every Muslim". The subject matter is so relevant to everyone regardless of age,gender,relationship status or level of religious practice or understanding of Islam. The course content is pragmatic. This course will be particularly helpful if you have a dysfunctional family or estranged family members whether immediate,extended or in laws! It will equip you with a better understanding of where to draw the line,bend over backwards or extend a hand that will benefit yourself in this world and the hereafter. If you have recently discovered Islam and grew up in a family that wasn't necessarily religious or involved in your life and tarbiyah, this class will teach you what your family may not have thus giving you a fresh start to reprogram yourself and your relationship with them. You will understand how to make better decisions according to your particular circumstances in regards to current and future relationships. I have seen those who need help the most avoid coming to these classes because they're afraid of getting hurt,guilty,feeling burdened or even unworthy after listening to what "Islam" has to say about them." 

- Maha Siddique, Calgary


"Protect This House was mind blowing!! Incredible amount of practical benefits from this class. From dealing with family, to marital advice, to raising children to parenting. After taking this class, I feel much more prepared for the challenges of marriage, family and parenting, alhamdulilah. My favourite AlMaghrib class!"
