He visits his aunt and problems arise as a result

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Should I visit my (paternal) aunt, knowing that she does not feel comfortable with me in her house, and after every visit she causes endless problems? In order to prevent further problems, I have decided not to visit her, but I greet her with salaams whenever I see her.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

The purpose of visiting is to uphold the ties of kinship and to strengthen the bonds (between family members). If the visits only serve to drive people further apart, then it is better not to visit, and to allow other means of keeping in touch to suffice, such as phone calls and the like.

 But it is better to strive to deal with the causes of these feelings and problems with your aunt. (See also Question #4631).

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
