Be Dutiful to Your Parents

Assalaamu Alaykum Warahmatulla hee Wa Barakaatuhu

Dear Muslim Brothers


The Rights and Importance Of Parents !!
A Short Story
An old man was sitting in the courtyard of his house along with his son who had received a high education. Suddenly a crow perched on a wall of the house. The father asked the son: What is this? The son replied: It is a crow. After a little while the father again asked his son:
What is this? The son said: It is a crow.
After few minutes father asked his son third time: What is this? The son said: Father, just now i told you that it is a crow. After a little while the old father again repeated the same question fourth time: what is this? By this time some statement of irritation was felt in the son’s tone when he rebuffed his father: Father! It is a crow, a crow. A little after the father again asked his son again: What is this? This time the son replied to his father with a vein of temper. Father: You are always repeating the same question; although I have told you so many times that it is a crow. Are you not able to understand this?
The father went to his room and came back with an old diary. Opening a page he asked his son to read what was written. What the son read were the following words written in the diary:
‘Today my little son was sitting with me in the courtyard, when a crow came there. My son asked me twenty-five times what it was ?and I told him twenty-five times that it was a crow and I did not at all feel irritated. I rather felt affection for my innocent child.’
The father then explained to his son the difference between a father’s and a son’s attitude. While you were a little child you asked me this question twenty-five times and I felt no irritation in replying to the question twenty-five times and when today I asked you the same question only five times, you felt irritated, annoyed and impatient with me.

Lets have a look on Quran

Bismillah-Hir Rahaman nir Raheem

Surah Al-Isra (17:23-24)

And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honor.

And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: “My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small.”

(Surah An-Nisa :36)
Serve Allah and join not any partners with Him: and do good― to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, those in need, neighbours who are near neighbours who are strangers, the Companion by your side, the way-farer (ye meet) and what your right hands possess: for Allah loveth not the arrogant, the vainglorious;―

(Surah Luqman 31:14)

And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents: his mother bear him in Weakness and Travail, and his weaning in Two Years:
“Show gratitude to Me and to thy parents: to Me is (thy final) Goal…

Surah Al- Ahqaf 46:15

And We have enjoined on man to be dutiful and kind to his parents. His mother bears him with hardship and she brings him forth with hardship, and the bearing of him, and the weaning of him is thirty (30) months, till when he attains full strength and reaches forty years, he says: “My Lord! Grant me the power and ability that I may be grateful for Your Favour which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and that I may do righteous good deeds, such as please You, and make my off-spring good. Truly, I have turned to You in repentance, and truly, I am one of the Muslims (submitting to Your Will).”


“O’ Allah! Make us such that we may be grateful for the efforts of our parents.” “O’ Allah! Make us successful in bringing forth a generation of pure-hearted, believing, grateful and righteous individuals. ..May Allah (sawt) grant us all the Divine success that we may be regarded amongst those who have been good towards their parents

Subhanak Allaahuma Wa Bihamdika Ash-Hadu Anlaa Illaaha Illa Anta Astaghfiruka Wa Atubu Ilayk

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allah (subhanahu wa taa’ala).
And if I erred, then it is from me and shay-tan.
