Haq al-Waalidain - Rights of parents

Contents > Social Life in Islam > Rights of parents

You must know the parent's rights. Allah says,


"And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents: in travail upon travail did his mother bear him and in years twain was his weaning: (hear the command) ‘Show gratitude to Me and to your parents: to Me is (your final) Goal.’" al-Qur’an, Surah Luqmaan, 31: 14

And,

"Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him and that you are kind to your parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them “Uf” (i.e. any single word of contempt) nor repel them but address them in terms of honour. And out of kindness lower to them the wing of humility and say: ‘My Lord! bestow on them Your Mercy as they cherished me in childhood.’" al-Qur’an, Surah al-Israa’, 17: 23- 24

A man asked the Prophet (saw) ,

"O Messenger of Allah! Who deserves the best care from me?" The Prophet (saw) said, "Your mother." The man asked, "Who then?" The Prophet (saw) said, "Your mother." The man asked yet again, "Who then?" The Prophet (saw) again said, "Your mother." The man asked once more, "Who then?" The Prophet (saw) then said, "Your father." Saheeh al-Bukhari

A person is obliged to look after his parents when they are old and provide food, clothing and shelter for them whenever they are needy, they must obey them, protect them and should even pay their debts for them and they are forbidden to speak harshly or raise their voice with them.
