Forgive me, Mom.. Dad..

Assalamualaikum to all readers n bloggers!


A Muslim child should respect and appreciate his or her parents every day throughout the year. Allah asked human beings to recognize their parents after recognition Allah Himself. Throughout the Qur'an, we notice that parents are mentioned with appreciation and with respect, even if they are senile.

The recognition and respect of parents is mentioned in the Qur'an eleven times; in every instance, Allah reminds children to recognize and to appreciate the care and love they have received from their parents. In one aspect, Allah demands that children recognize their parents by saying to them:
"We have enjoined on man kindness to parents."
1. The demand for recognizing parents is made more emphatic when Allah says in the Qur'an Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow) the following:
"And (remember) when We made a covenant with the children of Israel, (saying): worship none save Allah (only), and be good to parents..."
2. In Surah Al-Nisaa' (The Women) Allah (swt) emphasized again that children should be kind to their parents.
"And serve Allah. Ascribe nothing as partner unto Him. (Show) Kindness unto parents... "
3. In Surah Al An'Am (The Cattle), Allah (swt) reemphasized that people should be kind to their parents.
"Say: Come, I will recite unto you that which your Lord has made a sacred duty for you; that you ascribe nothing as partner unto Him and that you do good to parents..."


We hope and we pray that all of us will respect our parents while they are alive and even after they are dead. You may honor your parents after they died through the following methods:

Make daily Du'a' for them

Give a charity on their behalf

Institute a perpetual charity on their behalf - such as a Mosque, an Islamic Center, an Islamic Library, an Islamic hospital, an orphanage, a senior citizen's home...

Perform Hajj on their behalf or ask someone to do so.

Read Qur'an on their behalf
Distribute Islamic Literature on their behalf

Let us pray to Allah that we will do our best to respect our parents, to honor them, to be kind to them, to help them, and to please them for the love of Allah.

O Allah! Accept our humble prayers and make us obedient servants to you.
O Allah! Help us to be respectful children to our parents. Ameen. 

FORGIVE ME, MOM.. DAD.. -miss them so much-
