Severing ties with one’s
blood relation even if he is leading a life of sin is not the correct attitude.
If a person has fallen into evil, he, more than any one else, deserves
compassion, especially if he is such a close relation. We should remember that a
Muslim’s job is to keep on trying to reform a lost soul. We must be persistent
in our efforts and never give up for this is all what we have been asked to do;
it is upon Allah to give guidance and upon us to keep striving. The only thing
is that one should be very wise in tackling deviant people. One should first of
all develop a very deep friendship with such people. Every person has a heart
and if you have the right approach the heart can be melted.
