Make Dua For Your Parents

It’s important that we honour our parents. That doesn’t mean that once every year we make them breakfast in bed, and buy them some flowers. That means that we should make them feel special and loved every single day!

One of the things that we should do regularly is make dua for them. One of the most beautiful duas in the Qur’an is where Allah commands us to say:

رَّبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا

Rabbir-ham humaa kamaa rabbayaanee sagheeraa

“O Lord! Have mercy on them (my parents) as they did bring me up when I was small.”

[Surah Bani Isra'eel 17:24]

Because the simple fact of the matter is that nothing we ever do can ever repay what our parents have done for us! Therefore the very least we can do for them is make this dua for them.

    Well said. Particularly in the west, we have forgotten what it means to honor our parents for the work they did to provide for us. Salaam.
