The limit of siblinghood..! Is dhiig really thicker than biyo?

Should A cut contact with B?

To keep long azz story long:

One sibling (who we will call A) is praised as talented with a very promising future, whilst the other one (miss B) no one really believes in.
As a result of suffering abuse as a child, B is very difficult to deal with, but A has always been there for B.

One day A gets seriously injured & cannot continue his talent/dream. He believes a particular person that both he & B are close with is responsible, meanwhile this person (C) believes A has wronged him in many ways too.

A & C do not speak for years because of this. When they finally meet, they air their grievances.

A comes to the realization that his own dhiig, B, is the real culprit behind the failure of the friendship & perhaps him being cripple. B made her own brother take the fall for the damage caused to C, which are life altering.

A does not tell C he is innocent to protect B & keeps a straight face.

It is important to note that if C knew A was innocent, most likely A wouldn't have become partly cripple. This does not mean C hurt or planned the accident.

The damage is done, their friendship will never be the same, they agree to never meet again. Both are messed up basically.

We know B is a wreck, but she truly cares for A & doesn't realize that her meddling caused her brothers current state. A is shocked & doesn't know how to deal with this news. He has put up with her problems for years & bailed her out of jail multiple times. A struggles financially & works odd jobs to support B & himself.

Should A cut contact with B? :farmajoyaab:

Wallahi I read that four times was still confused
:drakelaugh:

So A and C are cripple and B was behind C’s problem but A took fault to protect B. You’re asking if A should cut B off because she’s a wreck and driving A crazy? My answer to that is no/yes
He can be there for B but has to set up boundaries and tell her he will not protect or provide.

A is physically crippled & C is mentally. B caused C's mental problems.

Should A cut B off cus B let A take the blame for C's mental problems?
 
No because B did not force A to take the blame
A could have at anytime said no
the thing is, B let A get the blame for years. A only found out years after confronting C.

B watched as her sibling got called all kinds of things for years & infront of him behaved as if he did it. B is even partly responsible for A's crippled state.

Oh my this relationship is dysfunctional as hell
A should forgive her
But if she messes up again
Cut her off
 
In Islam the person who breaks the ties of kinship will never enter Paradise.

Sometimes siblings can wrong you, just forgive for your own sake and move on with life.

I'd tell A keep in contact with B and be nice, but just keep your distance and not to trust B the same way.

Also next time use fake names for your characters.
I thought I was solving one of those facebook algebra riddles:wowsweat:

Islam calls for the upholding of the ties of kinship because of the great effect that this has on achieving social cohesion and perpetuating cooperation and love among the Muslims. Upholding the ties of kinship is a duty because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“… and fear Allaah through Whom you demand your mutual (rights), and (do not cut the relations of ) the wombs (kinship)…”

[al-Nisa’ 4:1]

“And give to the kindred his due and to the miskeen (poor)…”

[al-Isra’ 17:26]


Allaah has warned us against cutting the ties of kinship (interpretation of the meaning):

“And those who break the Covenant of Allaah, after its ratification, and sever that which Allaah has commanded to be joined (i.e., they sever the bond of kinship and are not good to their relatives), and work mischief in the land, on them is the curse (i.e., they will be far away from Allaah’s Mercy); And for them is the unhappy (evil) home (i.e., Hell).” [al-Ra’d 13:25]

What punishment could be worse than the curse and the evil home that awaits those who sever the ties of kinship ? They deny themselves the reward for upholding the ties of kinship in the Hereafter, in addition to denying themselves much good in this world, which is a long life and ample provision. The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever would like his rizq (provision) to be increased and his life to be extended, should uphold the ties of kinship.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 5986 and Muslim, 2557). Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Allaah created the universe, and when He had finished, kinship (al-rahm) stood up and said, “This is the standing up of one who seeks Your protection from being cut off.” Allaah said, “Yes, would it please you if I were to take care of those who take care of you and cut off those who cut you off?” It said, “Of course.” Allaah said, “Then your prayer in granted.”’” The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “Recite, if you wish (interpretation of the meaning): ‘Would you then, if you were given the authority, do mischief in the land, and sever your ties of kinship? Such are they whom Allaah has cursed, so that He has made them deaf and blinded their sight.’ [Muhammad 47:22-23].” (Saheeh Muslim bi Sharh al-Nawawi, 16/112).

Once we understand this, we need to ask: who is the one who upholds the ties of kinship? This was explained by the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) when he said: “The one who maintains a relationship with his relatives only because they maintain a relationship with him is not truly upholding the ties of kinship. The one who truly upholds those ties is the one who does so even if they break off the relationship.” (Reported by al-Bukhaari, 5645).

If the relationship is merely one of returning favours and giving like in return for like, and not taking the initiative, then this is not upholding the ties of kinship, it is only responding in kind. Some people follow the principle of giving a gift in return for a gift, and visiting in return for a visit, so if someone does not give them a gift, they do not give him a gift, and if he does not visit them, they do not visit him. This is not what is meant by upholding the ties of kinship at all, and this is not what is required by Islam. This is merely responding in kind, it is not the higher degree which Islam urges us to reach. A man said to the Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), “I have relatives with whom I try to keep in touch, but they cut me off. I treat them well, but they abuse me. I am patient and kind towards them, but they insult me.” The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “If you are as you say, then it is as if you are putting hot dust in their mouths. Allaah will continue to support you as long as you continue to do that.” (Reported by Muslim with commentary by al-Nawawi, 16/115). Who could bear to put up with hot dust? We seek refuge with Allaah from cutting off the ties of kinship.
