It is considered as Haraam to change your father or family lineage without any basis. It is an act which can lead you to the Fire of hell. There are many warnings which have been mentioned in the Ahadith and we will mention a few of them.
- Hadrat Sayyiduna Sa’ad bin Waqqas – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – has stated that, “He who makes another his father besides his (own father), or claims another as his father even though he is aware that this person is not his (real) father, Jannah has become Haraam upon him.” (At Targheeb, Bukhari, Muslim and ibn Maja)
- Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Zarr – may Allah be pleased with him – narrates that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – has stated that, “He who makes or claims another person as his father even though he knows that this is not his father, then this is indeed an ungrateful person.” (At Targheeb)
- Hadrat Sayyiduna Yazeed bin Shuraik bin Taariq – may Allah be pleased with him – mentions that he heard Hadrat Sayyiduna Ali – may Allah be pleased with him – declare on the Mimbar, “He who claims another to be his father or a slave claims another to be his master, then on both of them is the curse of Allah, all the Angels and all of mankind. On the Day of Judgement, all of their Fard acts and their Nafil acts will not be accepted. (At Targheeb, Muslim, Abu Daud)
