Weekly Reminder #29
Allah has taught us in this ayah the importance of parents (especially mothers), so in the next several reminders, we will focus on different aspects of how to honor our parents in accordance with Islaam, Insha-Allah. Ad-Duha Challenge This week let's ask ourselves if we show our parents the kind of love and respect they deserve? Do we visit often, keep in touch, care for them when they are sick, hold our tempers when they irritate or anger us, give them gifts, or take time to reminisce and share fond memories with them? In short, do we treat our parents the way we would like to be treated by our children in the future? Remember, your relationship with your parents will be a huge influence not only on your position in the hereafter, but also on how your children will treat you, so be mindful of setting a beautiful example. Even if one or both of your parents are deceased, you can still set a good example by regularly making du'a for them, giving charity in their names, and keeping good relations with their close friends. May Allah help us to treat our parents in the best and most beautiful way that is most pleasing to Allah and to them.
