Deeds which may admit to Jannah

Abu Ayyub (Radhiallahu anhu) reported:

A man said to the Prophet (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam): "Direct me to a deed which may admit me to Jannah.''

Upon this he (the Messenger of Allah (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam)) said: "Worship Allah and never associate anything with Him in worship, establish Salat, pay Zakat, and strengthen the ties of kinship.''

[Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

This Hadith mentions the compassion for relatives. It indicates the importance of compassion for relation in Islam. The term `strengthen the ties of kinship' implies nice treatment of one's relatives regardless of circumstances, maintenance of contact with them and fulfillment of the requirements of relationship with them.

Riyad-us-Saliheen – Hadith No: 1211.
