Family relationships are at the heart of Islam and maintaining ties is a central theme in the life of a Muslim. However, it may not always be easy to maintain a relationship with a family member or relative, especially if the relationship is unhealthy, unsupportive or abusive. Identifying such a relationship is not often the hard part, but rather how to resolve the issues and conflicts arising can have a huge impact on mental health and wellbeing for the entire family.
Islam is a collectivist religion and we should pride ourselves on how we, as an Ummah (community), are like one body. It is therefore our collective social responsibility to understand how to help ourselves and those around us when navigating difficult family relationships.
