Children! Let's listen to a blessed Hadees
Serving parents/How to attain paradise
Muhammad Jawaid Madani
Our Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم states: ھُمَا جَنّتُکَ وَنَارُکَ meaning ‘Your mother and father are your Heaven or Hell.’ (Ibn-e-Majah, vol. 4, p. 186, Hadees 3662) Dear children! Parents are a huge blessing for us, they have a high status, they fulfil all of our needs, for example our food, clothing and all other necessary things. They try and save us from all difficulties and calamities.
Dear children! Whoever respects their parents, listens to all the permissible things they say, and is not disobedient to them, Allah Almighty is happy with them and bestows them with Paradise. They are successful in both, this world and the Hereafter. The child who is disobedient to his parents, hurts the feelings of his parents and does not listen to them, Allah Almighty gets angry with him.
Once upon a time, a mother called out to her son, to which he did not reply. His mother cursed him and he became mute. (Birr-ul-Walidayn-lil-Tar Taushi, p. 79)
May Allah Almighty protect us from disobedience and give us the ability to serve our parents.
