Want to improve your relationship with your parents? Read these 9 verses and hadiths!

You will not fully recognize the tremendous sacrifices of your parents until you become a parent yourself!

Unfortunately, the limitless giving, the loving care and the real concern that parents offer with pleasure to their children are easily ignored nowadays.

In the fast-pace, extremely materialistic life we live, many precious values are easily forgotten. Dutifulness to parents is reduced to some presents and nice cards on certain days and occasions.

Compare this to the Islamic concept of dutifulness that extends this value even after parents pass away. Discover more comprehensive meanings and aspects of dutifulness to parents in the following collection of the Qur’an verses and the Prophet’s hadiths.

1. A DUTY SECOND TO TAWHID

{And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment.} (Al-Israa’ 17:23)

2. DON’T OFFEND YOUR PARENTS

{Whether one or both of them reach old age [while] with you, say not to them [so much as], “Fie,” and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word.} (Al-Israa’ 17:23)

3. REMEMBER THEIR FAVORS

{And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, “My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small.”} (Al-Israa’ 17:24)

4. KINDNESS TO NON-MUSLIM PARENTS

{But if they endeavor to make you associate with Me that of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them but accompany them in [this] world with appropriate kindness} (Luqman 31:15)

5. SPECIAL POSITION FOR MOTHERS

‘O Messenger of God, who is the person who has the greatest right on me with regards to kindness and attention?’

The Prophet replied, ‘Your mother.’

– ‘Then who?’

– ‘Then who?’

8. DO NOT BE A LOSER!

Abu Hurairah quoted the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) as saying: “He is doomed, he is doomed, he is doomed.”

Someone said, “Who, O Messenger of Allah?”

He answered,

“The person whose parents, one or both of them, reach old age during his lifetime but he does not enter Paradise.”(Muslim)

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many.
