If your parents are still alive, take a moment to either visit them or make a phone call to your mother and father or both of them and just tell them:
“I love you. I really miss you and I want to appreciate the fact that you brought me up when I was little; you really sacrificed for me. May Allah have mercy on you.”
Trust me, this will change your life. Do you know why?
The mercy of Allah automatically descends upon a person who tries to make his or her parents happy. You are asking that Allah has mercy on your parents, the angels are saying: “Oh Allah, have a double mercy on this particular person.”
The dua of the angels is much more powerful than your dua.
So today, don’t forget to make a call to your parents, send them a message, tell them how much you love them, tell them that you appreciate them. Tell them: “May Allah have mercy on you, my beloved parents, and may He open your doors.”
What did it cost you?
Even if you have a disagreement with your parents, you still do that. See the wonders that it works!
And then get into the habit of sending that message every single week at least or everyday.
Your life will change because when Allah instructed you to do something and you did it, you’re not obeying the instructions of Allah that would actually bring about His mercy, but you’re making someone happy. You make your parents happy, Allah will make you even happier.
