Can my father break ties with me?

Can my father break ties with me?

In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Answer

As I mentioned before it is not permissible for your father to force you to marry someone against your wishes.  It is not correct for your father to say that he is not your father anymore and break ties with you.

Breaking ties is considered a grave sin in Islam. Saaiduna Abu Al-Ansari Radiallahu Anhu narrates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallhu Alahi Wasalam said, ‘It is unlawful for an individual to sever relationships with his brother (in deen) for more than three nights, thus they meet an ignore one another.  The best amongst them will be the one who greets the other first’.  (Sahih Bukhari)

The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has said, “Does not enter Paradise he who breaks up his family ties”. (Sahih Bukhari)

The Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has said, “Whoever would like his rizq (provision) to be increased and his life to be extended, should uphold the ties of kinship.” (Sahih Bukhari & Sahih Muslim)
