The importance of family in Islam

SHAFAQNA – It is narrated from the Prophet of Islam (PBUH) who said: The best of you is the one who is the best for his family, and I am the best of you for my family [1]. In another narration (Hadith), the Prophet (PBUH) said: The one who goes to the market to buy a gift and takes it to his family is like the one who gives charity to those in need [2]. It is also narrated from the Prophet (PBUH) who said: Any good deed is a charity (Sadaqah), and whatever a believer spends for his family and wife, and with whatever means he protects his dignity, will be recorded as charity for that person [3]. It is narrated from Imam Reza (AS) who said: Whoever tries to earn Halal sustenance and spend it for his family is like a Mojahid in the way of Allah (SWT) [4].
