Eid & the right of the family

Sayyidi wa sanadi Shaikh Mufti Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him) inquired a seeker visiting from Iran towards the very end of Ramadan,

‘Why are you not planning to celebrate Eid with your family?

He was not able to provide a satisfactory answer.

Shaikh added,

‘Celebrating eid with the family is their right.

Go ahead immediately and arrange for your trip home to be with them for eid.’
