Islam - The Strange Religion
Qur'an: 4: 1:
"In the name of ALLAH, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
1. O mankind! Be dutiful to your Lord, who created you from a single person (Adam), and from him (Adam) He created his wife [Hauwa, (Eve)], and from them both He created many men and women through whom you demand (your mutual rights), and (do not cut the relations of) the wombs (kinship). Surely, ALLAH is ever an all-watcher over you."
Qur'an: 13: 25:
"And those who break the covenant of ALLAH, after its ratification, and sever that which ALLAH 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 faraway from ALLAH's mercy), and for them is the unhappy (evil) home (i.e. hell)."
"The person who perfectly maintains the ties of kinship is not the one who does it due to having it recompensed by his relatives (for being kind and good to them); rather, the one who truly maintains the bonds of kinship is the one who persists in doing so, despite his relatives severing the ties of kinship with him." [Al-Bukhari].
"A man said to the Messenger of ALLAH (May the peace and blessings of GOD be upon him): 'I have relatives with whom I try to keep good ties, but they sever relations with me; I treat them kindly but they treat me badly; I am gentle with them but they are harsh with me.' Prophet Muhammad (May the peace and blessings of GOD be upon him) replied: "If you are as you say, it is as if you are feeding them hot ashes, and you will have a supporter against them from ALLAH as long as you continue to do so."- [Muslim].
Muslims are not even allowed to sever relations with members of their family who are being unkind to them, instead they are adviced to continue to be gentle with them, that is indeed strange.
"Islam began as something strange and will revert to being strange as it began, so give glad tidings to the strangers." - Prophet Muhammad (May the peace and blessings of GOD be upon him).
