Is this Hadith authentic?
Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “You won’t be considered someone who uphold family ties if you merely reciprocate. The one who maintains good ties is the one who maintains ties when his kin sever ties.”
Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) has recorded this Hadith. The Hadith is therefore authentic.
(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5991)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
