As the generations are heading with higher pace towards the technological
advancement, the attachment, adornment and understanding towards the parents
are also decreasing with much higher pace. Today parents are being disregarded
and disrespected in all forms. Qur’an has very strongly instructed not to say even
“uff” to your parents which is least and smallest way of showing disrespect and
dishonoring the parents. As if the word “uff” has encapsulated the entire theme and
road map how the treatment with the parents should be. There is such a strong
endorsement from Allah that do not say even “uff” to your parents.
This book dive deep into the various Qur’anic ayaat which have given parents a very
high status. There are many Qur’anic ayaat and authentic hadith which depicts the
respect, obedience, care, honor, kindness and dutifulness towards parents which are
discussed in this book in great details.
After reading this book, I hope that children will engage more and more with their
parents. Also it ignites our soul to understand the Qur’anic guidance about the
parents and triggers our heart and mind to love, respect, care, obey, treat and
address them with ihsan, in the best possible way.
