DAILY ISLAMIC REMINDERS. Yaum As-Sabt, 3rd day of Dhul-Hijjah. (Saturday, 2nd of July, 2022).
*_HONOURING OUR PARENTS ON THESE 10 BLESSED DAYS_*: BismilLah.
Islam teaches us that the most beloved deeds to ALLAH aside our salaat is honouring our parents, which is greater than fighting in ALLAH cause. It is narrated on the authority of Abdullah bin Mas’ood raḍyAllāhu ‘anhu (may ALLAH be pleased with him), who observed: “I asked ALLAH’S Messenger ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of ALLAH be upon him) which deed was the best.” He (the Prophet ṣallallāhu ‘alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of ALLAH be upon him)) replied: ‘The Prayer at its appointed hour.’ I (again) asked: “Then what?” He (the Holy Prophet) replied: ‘Kindness to the parents.’ I (again) asked: “Then what?” He replied: ‘Earnest struggle (Jihad) in the cause of ALLAH.’ I refrained from asking any more questions for fear of annoying him. [Sahih Muslim].
LETS Make an extra effort to spend time with our parents during these blessed days. Recite Qur’an with them, read a book together, discuss a lecture you heard, share your plans for the future and seek their input. Drive your father to the masjid if he is unable to walk there and earn reward for doing so, or call them a few more times in the day if they live far away and more importantly, support them to celebrate the upcoming Eid. *_May ALLAH keeps guiding us all and protect us from any satanic influences_*. Aameen.
