Abu Aiyub (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that a man said to the Messenger of Allah (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him): Lead me to a deed which may admit me to Paradise. The Messenger of Allah said:
You should worship Allah and never associate anything with Him, establish prayer, pay Zakah, and strengthen the ties of kinship.
- A believer's observance of these things enables him to attain high rank in Paradise.
- The hadith also recommends a Muslim not to sever ties with his relatives.
