Dua Parents: the Surah says “Lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy”
and say “My Lord have mercy on them because “They raised me when I was young.”
This simple and lovely dua asks Allah to show mercy to both of our parents,
just like they did when we were young. We’re not perfect kids.
We’ve made mistakes and probably done a lot of things that made our parents mad,
but they still loved and cared for, and forgave us. In this prayer, we beg for the same kind of mercy
that our parents had for us to be bestowed upon us.
Three types of acts endure after the
death of a person: one-time charity,
the knowledge that benefits others,
and the intercession of one’s pious son.
This was reported by Abu Huraira (RA) in
Sahih Muslim 1631 (for the deceased).
We can honor our parents by remembering them regularly in our prayers.
We, as parents have a moral obligation to raise our children by the teachings of Islam.
This desire to repay my parent’s unconditional
love and sacrifice will come at some point in time.
Adult children now bear some of the responsibility for
their parents’ well-being in their old age and even after their death,
in a way that reverses the roles.
As a family, we should strive to help and support one
another to make life a little less difficult.
To avoid nagging, disrespect,
or creating an environment that we dread returning to,
we should refrain from doing these things.
Let’s ask ourselves how we can be the best husband,
mother, or sibling instead of focusing on what
we anticipate from one another.
What would that entail or resemble?
What would a person with that title hold themselves responsible for?
You will never be able to alter another person’s behavior,
no matter how hard you try.
Start by raising your standards and take the
lead without expecting anything in return.
They will change if you provide and maintain
this output for a sufficient amount of time.
Respect is returned when it is shown.

Ultimately, “everything dies”
This quote from Surah Imran is a potent one.
That we will all die is a reminder.
Think about it for a moment and you’ll
realize that it’s both frightening and liberating.
Take a crack at the following quick test of your mental stamina:
Think about the fact that this could be the
last time you see any of your family or friends before you go.
As far as I know, it isn’t a surefire path to depression or morbidity.
As long as tomorrow is the same as yesterday,
most people don’t think twice about taking their lives for granted.
But we all know this isn’t true; your brother, sister, mother,
or father will all die at some point.
This is, regrettably, the state of the world today.
Wouldn’t it be better for our mental well-being if we were
reminded of the end of our lives at all times?
As a result, I believe we would be more forgiving and tolerant
if we didn’t operate from a place of blaming others
for our shortcomings.
Being able to take a step back and see the bigger
picture allows you to avoid a knee-jerk reaction.
When the inevitable time comes for a close one to pass,
we can take comfort in the fact that we didn’t take
it for granted because we were living in the present moment.
As if we were cramming every last drop of enjoyment
out of that one precious second. Don’t get me wrong,
grieving will still be difficult,
but at least it won’t be tinged with guilt that could last.
