[An-Nisa’i’]
[Sahih al-Bukhari]
• It means that When his father or mother asks him to
keep a promise, he does not fulfil it; when they order
him to do something, he disobeys their order; when
they ask him something, he refuses to give it to
them; and when they trust him with something, he
betrays them.
[Ad-Dahabi, “The Book of Al-Kabaair”]

Parents.
7. Treat your mother with best companionship,
then your father; because Paradise is under
the mother’s feet.
Allah (swt) says in the Qur’an:
“And We have commanded man to be kind towards his
parents. His mother bears him (in the womb) with pain and
gives birth to him with pain. And bearing him (in the womb)
and weaning of him (i.e. the period of pregnancy and feeding)
is (spread over) thirty months...”
[Suratul Ahqaf: 15]
8. Never make them angry, otherwise you will
live a miserable life in this world and in the
Hereafter and your children will treat you
likewise.
As the Prophet (saws) said: “Allah delays the punishment of all
sins until the Day of Judgement except for the disobedience of
parents. Allah punishes the one who is undutiful to his
parents before his death.
[Reported by Al- Hakim and Al- Asbahani]
9. Beg Allah to forgive your Parents.
O Allah, have mercy on them as they have brought me
up from childhood. O Allah, forgive me, my parents and
fellow muslims in the hereafter.
