Sunnats and Aadaab of Rendering Service to People – Part 6

1. We are commanded in ​Shari’ah to serve our parents, be kind to them and at all times to see to their welfare. When speaking to them, we should speak to them with respect and adopt a soft, gentle and humble approach at all times. We should ensure that we do not cause any pain or inconvenience to them at any time through our words, actions, behaviour or even through our facial expressions.

عن ابن عباس قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم: من أصبح مطيعا لله في والديه أصبح له بابان مفتوحان من الجنة وإن كان واحدا فواحدا ومن أمسى عاصيا لله في والديه أصبح له بابان مفتوحان من النار وإن كان واحدا فواحدا قال رجل وإن ظلماه قال وإن ظلماه وإن ظلماه وإن ظلماه (شعب الإيمان، الرقم: 7538)

Hazrat Ibnu Abbaas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever spends his day obeying Allah Ta’ala with regards to his parents, then every morning, two doors of Jannah will be open for him. If he only has one parent alive then only one door will be opened for him. Whoever spends his day disobeying Allah Ta’ala with regards to his parents then two doors of Jahannum will be open for him. If he only has one parent alive then only one door will be opened for him.” The Sahaabi asked, “Even if they oppress you (i.e. should you still be kind to them)?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Even if they oppress you! Even if they oppress you! Even if they oppress you!”
