Is ancestral lineage important in the hereafter?

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: A person may be from a good and prominent family or tribe but his/her deeds are slow and weak; such a person must know that his/her ancestral lineage does not solve his/her problem. There is a Divine Law which says: If a person’s deed is weak and his/her lineage will not do anything for him/her in this world and in the hereafter. But in this world has some credit with people due to ancestral lineage but on the Day of Judgment these cases are not considered; on the Day of Judgment cause or lineage is not considered [1].
