serve your parents / Do you know?

Dear children! Love your mother & father, respect and honour them greatly, serve them, accept every permissible saying of theirs, and do not argue with them about anything. Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ mentions with regards to how we should remain with our mother and father, ‘Be in the utmost service to your mother & father - Allah willing - you will attain great success in both worlds. A mother & father have a great status, we should love them, they love us a great deal too, accept what they say too, do not argue with them, do not distress them, eat whatever they give you to eat, wear whatever they give you to wear, do not give tension to one’s mother & father but give them ease, Allah Almighty will be pleased with this and so will your mother & father. (Madani Channel, series: Bachho ki tarbiyyat, episode 03)

What should children do when their mother & father tell them off? Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ states: You should be silent when parents tell you off, good children don’t answer back; you shouldn’t even converse with them in a loud voice nor stare at them. In order to defuse their anger, you should say (as per the circumstances),’Mum! May Allah Almighty show you Madīnah’. So - Allāh willing - the anger of your mother will be diffused. (Bachho ki tarbiyyat, episode 03)

Dear children! Make the intention that you will act upon these matters - Allāh willing.
