Honouring Parents
• Abu Dardaa (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates: I heard Rasulullah (ﷺ) saying:
“A father is the best gate of the gates of Paradise; so it is up to you, either you lose that gate (by disobeying him), or protect it (by obeying him).” (Tirmidhi)
• ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr (Radhiyallahu Anhuma) narrates that Rasulullah (ﷺ) said:
“Allah’s pleasure lies in a father’s pleasure and Allah’s displeasure lies in a father’s displeasure.” (Tirmidhi)
• ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (Radhiyallahu Anhuma) narrates: I heard Rasulullah (ﷺ) saying:
“The finest act of righteousness for a son is to treat his late father’s friends kindly.” (Muslim)
• Anas ibn Malik (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (ﷺ) said:
“He who wishes that his life span be prolonged and his provisions increased should treat his parents well and maintain his bonds of kinship.” (Musnad Ahmad)
• Mu‘aadh (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (ﷺ) said:
“He who treats his parents well, for him are the good tidings of a prolonged lifespan.” (Mustadrak Hakim)
• Abu Usaid Malik ibn Rabi‘ah As-Sa’idi (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that while we were with Rasulullah (ﷺ), a man from Bani Salamah came and said:
“O Rasulullah (ﷺ)! Is there any kindness left that I can do for my parents, after their death?” He said: “Yes! By supplicating for them, asking for forgiveness for them, carrying out their final instructions after their death, joining ties of relationship which are dependent on them and honouring their friends.” (Abu Dawud)
• Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that Rasulullah (ﷺ) said:
“May he be humiliated. May he be humiliated. May he be humiliated.” It was said: “Who, O Rasulullah (ﷺ)?” He replied: “The one, who having one or both parents live to old age, does not enter Paradise (by serving them and pleasing their hearts).” (Muslim)
• Abu Hurairah (Radhiyallahu Anhu) narrates that a man came to Rasulullah (ﷺ) and asked: “O Rasulullah (ﷺ)! Who is the most deserving of my excellent conduct and service?” He replied: “Your mother.” The man asked: “Who is next?” He replied: “Then your mother.” The man asked: “Who is next?” He replied: “Then your mother.” The man asked: “Who is next?” He replied: “Then your father.” (Bukhari)
• ‘A’ishah (Radhiyallahu Anha) narrates that Rasulullah (ﷺ) said: “While asleep I found myself in Paradise and heard someone reciting the Qur’an. I asked: “Who is this?” The angels replied: “Harithah ibn Nu’man (Radhiyallahu Anhu).” Then Rasulullah (ﷺ) said to ‘A’ishah (Radhiyallahu Anha): “Great deeds are like this, great deeds are like this!” (It is the result of a great deed that) Harithah ibn Nu’man (Radhiyallahu Anhu) was very dutiful to his mother.” (Musnad Ahmad)
