Salam Islam's "A Verse A Day," this time addresses the issue of logical thinking and living through an insightful mind. In Surah al-Isra, verse 36, Allah reminds people of the importance of this matter in making decisions and choosing one's path:
“Lower the wing of humility to them, mercifully, and say, ‘My Lord! Have mercy on them, just as they reared me when I was [a] small [child]!’” (17:24)
1- Always be humble towards your parents
2- Your humility towards your parents should be out of kindness, not to take advantage of them.
3- Ask God to bestow mercy upon your parents.
4- Always remember your past and all the troubles and sufferings your parents went through because of you.
5- Express your gratitude to your parents as your first teachers.
- Only God can compensate for the sufferings your parents went through to raise you, and you could never thank them enough for what they did.
- Praying for parents is a command of God and a way of expressing your gratitude to them.
- God will fulfill any prayer for our parents, if not, He wouldn’t ask us to pray for them.
