Family problems

Q: My mother sold her house without asking me and my wife. Suddenly we got shock that she sold house. My wife sent a whatsapp massage to my sister and cursed all. One of my brother' s wife got naraz. When we were going to Umrah we came to know she was naraz with us. My wife called for sorry. She forgave but broke the relation and told she will not keep any fact they sold house without asking wife became emotional and cursed them. Now after three years we come to our country they did not come to pick at airport we already informed them ....did not try to meet. In fact we went to their door but did not call us. In fact I invited them on Eid breakfast but my brother's wife did not come. My brother came but did not eat any thing. Please guide me according to Islam. We want to keep the relation but they did not take a single step. Please guide us who is sinner?

A: Go on trying and inviting them and be good to them and make du`aa for them. Read the section on family relations in Fazaa'il-e-Sadaqaat. May Allah Ta`ala grant you barkat in both the worlds.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
