Q: My sister left the fold of Islam 17 years ago. I never had contact with her up to 6 months ago hoping to get her to come back to Islam. Is it wrong to be in contact with her? I miss her so much.
A: Keep contact with her, treat her with kindness and compassion with the intention of bringing her back to Islam. Do not force, rather advise and encourage.
May Allah Ta’aala grant you success, Aameen.
