RESPECT TO PARENTS

CLASS 5 - LESSON 4
RESPECT TO PARENTS
Respect means to listen someone, and have regard for them. It also means to think
that someone is important, and pay attention to them without making faces or feeling
bad.
Allah explains in Qur'an (2:83) to Obey Him and respect our parents. This shows
how important it is to listen and obey the wishes of your parents.
There is a hadith that
"Heaven lies under the feet of your mother."
This means that a person who pleases his mother,
and makes her satisfied with him, will find heaven
much easier to get to.
Our Holy Prophet (S) explains that
Whomsoever displeases their parents, their Ibadaat (prayers) are not accepted.
This hadith tells us that Allah will not accept a person's
prayers, if that same person displeases his parents.
Since one of Allah's greatest commands is to obey our
parents, how can we go against that?
Children brought up in a western society do not see
respect shown to parents around them. After marriage,
it is normal to leave parents alone and send them to old
peoples' homes.
Islam tells us that this is not the right thing to do. One
should always help their parents, and never leave them
alone in hardship or trouble.
When you wake up in the morning, one of the first things you should do is to go and
say "Salamun Alaykum" to your parents.
Duties to Parents
1. Never raise your voice to them.
2. When they first enter a room, stand up if you are sitting.
3. Do not interrupt them when they are speaking.
4. Do not correct their mistakes in front of others.
Allah loves the person who respects his parents so much, that he is blessed with
Thawaab.
