Parents in Islam Jihad

The Holy Prophet Muhammad [Peace be upon Him] has observed: “Let that man be disgraced, and disgraced again and let him be disgraced even more.” The Sahaabah’s inquired: “O Prophet of Rasoolul Laah [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]!! Who is that man?” The Prophet said:
“I refer to the man who finds his parents old in age – both of them or one of them – and yet did not earn entitlement to Paradise by rendering good service to them.”
[Muslim Shareef]

Hazrat ‘Abdul laah ibn ‘Amr [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] relates that a person came to the presence of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah Kareem he upon him) with the intention of participating in the Jihaad. The Holy Prophet enquired from him : “Are your father and mother alive?” He said “Yes, they are alive”. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Go and render good service to them. This is the Jihaad”.
[Saheeeh al-Bukhaari, Muslim]

Love your Parents Hadees Shareef

Love your parents
Love your parents and consider this act as a privilege and a source of reward in the eternal world. Hazrat Ibn ‘Abbas [Radiyal Laahu Anhu] relates that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) have said :

“The pious offspring who casts a single look of affection at his parents receives a reward from God [Allaah Kareem] equal to the reward of an accepted Hajj.” The people submitted: “O Rasoolul Laah  : If someone casts a hundred such glances of love and affection at his parents, what then?”

The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah  Kareem be upon him) observed;
“Yes, indeed, even if one does so a hundred times a day, he will get a hundred fold reward. Allaah Kareem Mercy is far greater than you imagine...[Muslim Shareef]

Parents in Islam

Offer prayers begging grace for your parents
Offer prayers begging grace for your parents, Bring to mind their fervent appeals to the Lord [Allaah Kareem] and beg His mercy for them with a zealous and sincere heart. God ordains:

“And say: My Lord! Have mercy on them both
as they did care for me when I was little.”
In other words, say: “O Creator, with mercy, devotion, affection and love, my Lord, they reared me in childhood and sacrificed their own pleasure and ease for my sake but, they, in their infirmity and helplessness of old age, are more deserving of kindness, and love than I ever was. Allaah Kareem! I can pay them no recompense. Do patronize them and show them mercy in their miserable state”.
