Ways to Treat Your Parents
Ways to Treat your Parents, according to Quran and Hadith :)
01: The most essential duty of a Muslim child (no matter how young or old you are!) is to show kindness and respect towards his or her parents. This can be in a form of many things; from kind words to warm hugs! In fact, Allah has commanded us to be kind to our parents in his verses, so it’s an important duty that should be taken seriously.
Related verses from the Quran:
“Your Lord has ordained that you must not worship none but Him, and that you must be kind to your parents” [Al-Isra 17:23]
“And worship Allah and do not associate anything with Him and be good to the parents…” [An-Nisa 4:36]
“We have advised the human being, ‘Be kind to your parents’” [Al-Ankabut 29:8]
Narrated by Ibn Mas’ud (r.a): “I asked the Prophet (pbuh): What is the most beloved deed in sight of Allah, the Almighty?” He (pbuh) said: “Offering salat in due and prescribed time.” I then asked: “What is next?” He said: “Kindness to one’s parents.” I further asked: “What is next?” He (pbuh) said: “Jihad for the cause of Allah” [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]
02: Parents are to be treated like Kings and Queens; hence we as daughters or sons should always speak nicely and generously to our parents! And don’t forget to smile whenever you speak to them (yes, even if you’re on the phone! :P)
Related verse from the Quran:
“Whether one or both of them attain old age, do not express to them words which show your slightest disappointment. Never yell at them but always speak to them with kindness.” [Al-Isra' 17:23]
03: Have you ever heard a nasyeed called “Your Mother” by Yusuff Islam? This is also one of the ways to treat your parent; which is to give EXTRA love to her! Mothers deserve fine and awesome treatment, for they have borne the child’s burden during pregnancy, has undergone birth pains, sacrificed her own comfort to her children, so many others!
But this doesn’t mean you should ignore your fathers! They too, are super awesome, so both parents must be treated with much respect.
Related hadith from Quran:
Narrated by Abu Hurairah (r.a): “A person came to the Prophet (pbuh) and said: “Who among the people is most deserving of my fine treatment?” The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Your mother”. He asked again, “Then who?” The Prophet (pbuh) replied, “Your mother”. He asked again, “Then who (is the next one)?” The Prophet (pbuh) replied “Again, is it your mother” He (again) asked “Then who?” Thereupon the Prophet (pbuh) said, “Then it is your father” [An-Nisa 4:82]
04: Don’t wait for special occasions to show your appreciation towards your loving parents! There are many ways to show your appreciation to them; like giving flowers, free back massage, cards, cook their favourite food, and many many others (within your capability and creativity!) And remember, everytime you do, do it with the right “niat”, and full with sincerity. In the end you’d just want to please Allah and make your parents feeling joyous :)
05: The best way to treat your parents is to continuously make dua’ for them! Make dua’ in your prayers or sujud, whenever you thinking or missing her, or even the times when they are in your presence. May Allah bless our beloved parents and grant them Paradise, amin!
“Rabbi-r-hamhumaa ka-mma rabbayaa ni sa-ii-ra”
Dua’ for parents in the Quran:
“Be humble and merciful towards them and say, ‘Lord, bestow Your Mercy upon them as they cherished me in my childhood’” [Al-Isra 17:24]
06: Whenever you feel like it, tell your parents without hesitation: “I LOVE YOU!” *heart*
