Those who sever family ties will not enter Jannah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

How authentic is this Hadith?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “The person who breaks the bond of kinship will not enter Paradise.”



Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith on the authority of Sayyiduna Jubayr ibn Mut’im (radiyallahu ‘anhu). The narration is therefore authentic.

Sayyiduna Jubayr ibn Mut’im (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Those who sever ties will not enter Jannah [early/initially].”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 5984, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 2556)


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
