I should be doing my Matlab assignment right now, but I would like to set aside a few minutes for my shukr to Allah and an appreciation to my visitors by writing some thoughts that came into my mind earlier this morning.
I was busy cleaning up Adam while 'talking' to Hajar, when suddenly I thought of how wonderful the parents-children relationship is. I am responsible for my kids' upbringing and making sure they fully understand their main objective in this world, that is to serve and to please The Creator, Allah Azzawajall. While the children in return, should be treating their parents with kindness and respect. This is just a simple relationship that I immediately thought of, but I believe the parents-children relationship is more complex and includes many more things. Maybe you guys should be thinking about them.
Anyway, what happen if a child claims that (s)he loves his/her parents, but does not practice the religion(Islam)? How would a child make dua and pray for his/her parents once the parents have passed away? Do the child really loves and cares about her/his parents if (s)he does not even care to pray and make dua to Allah?
How many people think that they are the greatest child in the world, and that their parents are the most luckiest parents?
How many people think that being good to parents in this dunya is enough to prove their love towards parents, while they ignore the responsibilities as servants of Allah at the same time?
Do people even think of showing continuous love to their parents by respecting and treating their parents well, staying in obedience to Allah, making lots of dua for their parents during their lives and after?
How many people are blinded by love through materials only?
