Sacrifices Of Parents And Their Honor In Islam

There is no religion of this world that shows the parents a material love and dishonor them. Every religion of the world has respect for parents. Even if we see this relation in our daily lives; we know that our mothers are the ones who have gone through pain while we were in our womb. Because of her suffering and pain we are in this world. Then she took care of us when we were infants without even caring for day of night. She is the one who brought us up. Then our fathers took care of our social needs as well as personal needs. They educated us, gave us moral values, spiritually crafting us and even gave us religious knowledge by their collecting efforts. If we learn Quran we would find out what is the place of parents in the eyes of ALLAH.

In Islamic school of thought the Muslims have rights and duties towards the parents. These are discussed in detail in the Quran. As said by Allah in Quran:

"And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents. In travail upon travail did his mother bear him, and in two years was his weaning. Show gratitude to Me and to thy parents; to Me is thy final goal." (Chapter31: verse14)

Then again said in Quran by Allah:

"Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that ye be kind to parents. Whether one or more attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor. And out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say, "my Lord! bestow on them Thy Mercy, even as they cherished me in childhood." (17: 23,24)

"We have enjoined on man kindness to his parents; in pain did his mother bear him, and in pain did she give him birth." (46:15)

Make your children read Quran online so that they can come to know about honor and place of parents in the eyes of Allah.
