In light of Surat Al-Israa Sheikh Yasir Qadhi spotlights a very important topic tackled in the surah; the status of parents in Islam.
Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honour. (Al-Israa 17:23)
What does Islam tell about parents; where does Islam, according to this verse, place parents? How accordingly should we act towards them, why?
Besides, how could we practically work on and strengthen our relations with our parents, the parents of our relatives and friends, and all the elderly in our neighborhoods and communities? How could we show love and kindness for them for the sake of our love, respect and gratitude for our own parents?
Listen to the interestingly distinctive and emotional talk by Sheikh Yasir Qadhi
