mother of Ibrahim, and one of the Prophet's wives was from that place).
This is why this Hadith has been included in
the present chapter which deals with the subject of maintaining the ties of kinship. This Hadith is also a Prophecy of
the Prophet (PBUH) due to the fact that the prophecy he had made came true. A short time after his death, Egypt
became part of the Muslim empire.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: When this Verse was revealed:
"And warn your tribe
(O Muhammad (PBUH)) of near kindred".
(26:214) Messenger of Allah (PBUH) called the Quraish; when they
gathered, he said to them:
"O sons of `Abd Shams; O sons of Ka`b bin Lu'ai, rescue yourselves from the Fire! O
sons of Murrah bin Ka`b, rescue yourselves from the Fire! O sons of `Abd Manaf, rescue yourselves from the Fire!
O sons of `Abdul-Muttalib, rescue yourselves from the Fire! O Fatimah, rescue yourself from the Fire, for I have no
power (to protect you) from Allah in anything except that I would sustain relationship with you".
1. This Hadith tells us that lineage in the Hereafter will not help anybody. So much so that even one's relationship
with Messenger of Allah (PBUH) shall not carry any weight on that day. The only thing that will then help in
salvation will be one's good deeds. People for whom the Prophet (PBUH) and pious men will intercede will be
believers with some sins in their account and not the disbelievers devoid of Faith and good actions. Neither will
anybody intercede for the infidels, nor will the infidels find salvation.
2. In preaching religion, priority must be given to one's own close relatives. They deserve it more than anyone else,
and for this reason Divine injunctions should be first of all conveyed to them.
3. Even if a Muslim's relatives are pagans and polytheists, their rights of kinsmen and the demands of "maintaining
the ties of kinship'' enjoined by Islam must be fulfilled. The first and foremost demand of their rights is that they
should be invited to the right path so that they will be saved from Hell-fire.

Abu Abdullah `Amr bin Al-`as (May Allah be pleased with them) said: I heard Messenger of Allah (PBUH)
saying openly not secretly,
"The family of so-and-so (i.e., Abu Talib) are not my supporters. My supporter is Allah
and the righteous believing people. But they (that family) have kinship (Rahm) with whom I will maintain good the
ties of kinship".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) had made it absolutely clear that although such persons were his near
relatives, he did not have any affection and friendship with them because there cannot be any affection between a
pagan and a Muslim. Friendship and affection can only be for Allah and those who have faith in Him. One can
accommodate the non-Muslim relatives to the extent permitted by "maintaining the ties of kinship'', provided they
are not at war with the Muslims.

Abu Ayyub Khalid bin Zaid Al-Ansari (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A man came to Messenger
of Allah (PBUH) and said, "Direct me to a deed which will admit me to Jannah and take me away from the Fire".
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said,
"Worship Allah and associate no partner with Him, perform As-Salat, pay
