My aunt who we were so close and had a good relationship has suddenly allege that my mother said something about her mother. She has stopped talking to my mother and ignores me. My question is, if I see her, do I still call her? Do I still try to make that effort?


Your upholding ties with your aunt, even though she is cutting you off, are truly upholding the ties of kinship as urged by Islamic teachings. The Prophet (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: The one who upholds ties is not the one who reciprocates in kind; rather the one who upholds ties is the one who, if his relatives cut him off, he upholds ties with them (Bukhari) Yes make that effort
