Qur'anic verses:

{Thy Lord has decreed that ye worship none
but Him, and that ye be kind to parents.
Whether one or both of them attain old age in
thy life, say not to them a word of contempt,
nor repel them but address them in terms of
honor. And, out of kindness, lower to them the
wing of humility, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on
them mercy even as they cherished me in

}
[Al-Isra': 23-24]

{And remember We took a covenant from
the children of Israel (to this effect): Worship
none but Allah; Treat with kindness your
parents and kindred, and orphans and those in
need; speak fair to the people; be steadfast in
prayer; and give Zakat, then did turn back,
except a few among you, and ye backslider
(even now).}
[Al-Baqarah: 83]

{And We have enjoined on man (to be
good) to his parents: In travail upon travail did
his mother bear him. And in years twain was
his weaning: (hear the command), "Show
gratitude to Me and to thy parents: To Me is
thy final goal.}
[Luqman: 14]

{We have enjoined on man kindness to his
parents: In pain did his mother bear him and
in pain did she give him birth. The carrying of
the (child) to his weaning is a period of thirty
months.}
[Al-Ahqaf: 15]

Prophetic Hadiths:

"Shall I not tell you of the worst major sins?
Worshipping others with Allah and showing
disrespect to parents"
[Reported by Al-Bukhari]

67

Parents give so much to rear their children. They do not wait to be recompensed by their children. They,

naturally, do this out of love and affection. Therefore, we should be grateful to them. The fortunate is the

one who pleases his parents. Let us now read a message written by a girl to her mother after she gave birth

to her first child.

"Mother! I love you. I love you. I love you. I have never sensed that kind of love before. Everything that

surrounds me fills my heart by love. I love you all the time. But I have just realized what love is. While a

child, I was perplexed when seeing you worried about me and my brothers and sisters. You gave so much

that you preferred us to yourself'.

When I heard the first cry of my baby, I knew how much you suffered and how much you loved me”.

"Someone came to the Prophet (pbuh) and
asked, "Who deserves my service most (after
Allah)? The Prophet (pbuh) replied, "Your
mother." "Who is next'?" the man asked again.
"Your mother," the Prophet (pbuh) replied.
"Who is next?" the man asked once more.
"Your mother," the Prophet (pbuh) replied.
"Who is next?" the man further asked. "Your
father," the Prophet (pbuh) replied.
[Reported by Al-Bukhari]

Allah’s Apostle (pbuh) said:
"Let him be humbled into dust; let him be
humbled into dust. It was said: Allah's
Messenger, who is he? He said: He who sees
either of his parents during their old age or he
sees both of them, but he does not enter
Paradise."

[Reported by Muslim]

A man came and said to the Prophet

(pbuh),

"O Messenger of Allah, my father asks for
my property." Then the Prophet (pbuh) said,
"Both you and what you possess are your
father's."

[Reported by Ahmad]

"Allah has forbidden showing disrespect to

one's mother"

[Reported by Al-Bukhari]
