we find ourselves indebted to our parents, particularly our mother. She not only nourished us in her womb, but went through pain and suffering. She loved us even before we were born. She toiled when we were totally helpless infants. She spent sleepless nights caring for us. Our parents as a team provided for all our needs: physical, educational, psychological, and in many instances, religious, moral, and spiritual. Our indebtedness to our parents is so immense that it is not possible to repay it fully. In lieu of this, it becomes obligatory for us to show the utmost kindness, respect, and obedience to our parents. The position of parents, and the mutual obligations and responsibilities, have been addressed in Islam in great detail. The Qur'anic commandments, as well as the sayings of Prophet Muhammad guide us in this matter. The parent-child code of behavior in Islam is unique, since rules were laid down by divine command.


References to parents have been made at least 15 times in the Holy Qur'an. There are numerous traditions of the Prophet Muhammad on this subject. I will first quote some of the Qur'anic verses here:


"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)

"Our Lord! Forgive me and my parents and believers on the day when the account is cast." Holy Quran (14:41)

"My Lord! Forgive me and my parents and him who enters my house believing, and the believing men and the believing women; and do not increase the unjust in aught but destruction!" Holy Quran (71:28)

According to the above verse, gratitude to God and to parents go hand in hand. Gratitude to God is incomplete without showing gratitude to one's parents. Since being grateful to God is a form of ibadah (worship) which earns heavenly rewards, it can therefore be said that being grateful to one's parents also earns heavenly rewards.

"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)

Thus, God has enjoined on us to show kindness, respect, and humility to our parents. We are commanded to do this, even though they may have injured us. The only exception to the above command is made in the following verse:

"We have enjoined on man kindness to his parents; but if they strive (to force) thee to join with Me anything of which thou hast no knowledge, obey them not." (29:8)

Mother, what can I give you?
After having reached the height of his career a man felt a duty to repay his mother back for all that she had done for him.

He asked, “Mother, what can I give you? What can I do for you? I sincerely wish to repay you for the sacrifices you made for me and for all the love you have showered upon me.”

Mother looked surprised and said, “Why do you think about it? It was my duty so I did it, you don”t have to repay me. Even if you want to, there is no way a man can ever repay his mother.”

Despite her continuous refusal to ask for anything, the son persisted. To put an end to the discussion, she said, “All right. If you must, then tonight you sleep on my bed, with me, just as you used to when you were a baby.”
He said, “That”s a strange thing to ask for, but if it pleases you, I will.”

As soon as he fell asleep, the mother got up and brought a bucket of water. She poured a mug full of water on his side. Feeling disturbed by the wetness under him, in his sleep he moved away to the other side of the bed. As he settled down, his mother poured another mug of water on the other side. In his slumber he tried to find space towards the foot post of the bed.

Sometime later he woke up feeling that this part of the bed too was damp. He got up and saw his mother, with the mug in her hand. He asked angrily, “What are you doing mother? Why don”t you let me sleep? How do you expect me to sleep on a wet bed?”

Mother said, “I slept with you, when you wet the bed in the night. I would change your nappy and move you to the dry part of the bed, while I slept on the wet side. You wanted to repay me. Can you sleep here even for one night with me on a damp bed? If you can, I”ll take it that you have repaid me.”

How eloquently the story above demonstrates that we can”t even begin to repay the care, love and attention a mother showers her child throughout the course of life.
May Allah (SWT) enable us to be of service and comfort to both our parents when we can and may He grant us PATIENCE to serve them during their old age.

Jab Tu Peda Howa Kitna Majbour Tha
Yeh Jahan Teri Socho`n Se Bhi Door Tha

Hath Paon Bhi Tab Tere Apne Na Thay
Teri Ankhon Main Duniya Ke Sapne Na Thay

Tujh Ko Ata Tha Sirf Rona Hi Tha
Doodh Pe Ke Kaam Tera Sona Hi Tha

Tujh Ko Chalna Sikhaya Tha Maa Ne Teri
Tujh Ko Dil Main Basaya Tha Maa Ne Teri

Maa Ke Saye Main Parwan Chalne Laga
Waqt Ke Sath Qad Tera Barhne Laga

Aahista Aahista Tu Kariyal Jawan Ho Giya
Tujh Pe Sara Jahan Mehrban Ho Giya

Zor-e-Bazoo Pe Tu Baat Karne Laga
Khud Hi Sajne Laga Khood Hi Sanwarne Laga

Aik Din Ik Haseena Tujhe Bha Gayi
Ban Ke Dulhan Woh Tere Ghar Agayi

Farz Apne Se Tu Door Hone Laga
Beej Nafrat Ka Khood Hi Tu Bone Laga

Phir Tu Maa Baap Ko Bhi Bhulane Laga
Teer Bato Ke Phir Tu Chalane Laga

Baat Be Baat Unn Se Tu Ladne Laga
Qayda Ik Naya Tu Phir Padne Laga

Yaad Kar Tujh Se Maan Ne Kaha Ik Din
Abb Humara Guzara Nahi Tere Bin

Sunn Ke Yeh Baat Tu Tesh Main Aa Gaya
Tera Gussa Teri Aqal Ko Kha Gaya

Josh Main Aake Tu Ne Yeh Maa Se Kaha
Main Tha Khamosh Sub Dekhta Hi Raha

Aaj Kehta Hoon Peecha Mera Chor Do
Jo Hai Rishta Mera Tum Se Woh Tor Do

Jao Ja Ke Kahin Kaam Dhanda Karo
Log Marte Hain Tum Bhi Kahin Ja Maro

Beth Kar Aahain Bharte The Woh Raat Bhar
Inki Aahon Ka Tujh Par Howa Na Asar

Aik Din Baap Tera Chala Rooth Kar
Kese Bikhri Thi Phir Teri Maan Toot Kar

Phir Woh Be Bass Ajal Ko Bhulati Rahi
Zindagi Isko Har Roz Satati Rahi

Aik Din Mout Ko Bhi Taras Agiya
Iska Rona Bhi Taqdeer Ko Bha Giya

Ashk Ankhon Main Liye Woh Rawana Howi
Mout Ki Aik Hichki Bahana Howi

Ik Sukoon Is Ke Chehre Pe Chane Laga
Phir Tu Mayyat Ko Iski Sajane Laga

Muddatain Ho Gayi Aaj Boorha Hai Tu
Jo Para Touti Khatiya Pe Koora Hai Tu

Tere Bache Bhi Abb Tujh Se Darte Nahi
Nafratein Hain Muhabbat Woh Karte Nahi

Dard Main Tu Pukare Ke O MERI MAA
TERE DAM SE ROSHAN THE DONO JAHAN

Waqt Chalta Rahe Waqt Rukta Nahi
Tout Jata Hai Woh Jo Ke Jhukta Nahi

Bann Ke Ibrat Ka Tu Abb Nishan Reh Giya
Dhondh Zor Tera Kahan Reh Giya

Tu EHKAM-E-RABBI Bhulata Raha
APNE MAA BAAP KO TU SATATA RAHA

Kaat Le Tu Wohi Tu Ne Boya Tha Jo
Tujh Ko Kese Mile Tu Ne Khoya Tha Jo

Yaad Kar Ke Gaya Dor Rone Laga
Kal Jo Tu Ne Kiya Aaj Hone Laga

Mout Mange Tujhe Mout Aati Nahi
Maa Ki Surat Nigahon Se Jati Nahi

Tu Jo Khansay Tu Aulad Dante Tujhe
Tu Hai Nasoor Sukh Kon Bante Tujhe

Mout Ayegi Tujh Ko Magar Waqt Par
Bann Hi Jaye Gi Qabar Teri Waqt Par

QADAR MAA BAAP KI AGAR KOI JAAN LE
APNI JANNAT KO DUNIYA MAIN PEHCHAN LE

Aur Leta Rahe Woh Baro`n Ki Dua
Is Ke Dono Jahan, Iska Ka Haami KHUDA
