Abu Dawud Book 034, Hadith Number 4480.

Chapter : One should not be punished for wrong done by ones brother or father.

Narated By Abu Rimthah : I went to the Prophet (pbuh) with my father. The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) then asked my father: Is this your son? He replied: Yes, by the Lord of the Ka'bah. He again said: Is it true? He said: I bear witness to it. The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) then smiled for my resemblance with my father, and for the fact that my father took an oath upon me. He then said: He will not bring evil on you, nor will you bring evil on him. The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) recited the verse: "No bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another."
