The Importance of Keeping One’s Parents Happy

Hazrat Shaikh Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) once wrote the following to a person whose parents were displeased with him for some reason and had complained to Hazrat Shaikh (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) regarding him. Hazrat Shaikh (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) said:

I am extremely saddened to hear that your father is currently displeased with you. You should go out of your way to please him and make him happy. The displeasure of one’s parents is a means of one incurring great loss in one’s deen and in one’s dunya.

You should make up by humbling yourself and pleasing them, and fulfilling what they want from you. If they are displeased for something that does not relate to deen (but relates to some permissible worldly affair), then as far as possible, try to please them and refrain from that which they do not want you to do.

You should also continue to ask your parents for forgiveness, and in asking them for forgiveness, it will not cause you any humiliation or disgrace.

(Qutbul Aqtaab Hazrat Sheikhul Hadith Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) pg. 443)
