Responsibilities of a brother in regards to his sister after parents demise.


What Islam teaches about brother and sister relationship. if parents died what are the responsibility of a brother?


Alaykum Al-Salam

It is Wajib for brothers and sisters to do Selat Al-Rahim. If a sister need’s support and protection, brothers should provide for her. Most of the duties of brothers and sisters were not talked about frankly as the situations and needs are very different. also there are great reward mentioned for loving and helping siblings which shows the importance of this relationship in the eyes of Allah.
