Al Qur’an Al Hadith
Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Rahim
Surah Al-A’raf, 7:189-90
It was God who created you from a single being. From that being God created a mate, so that each might find comfort in the other. And when they had lain together, she conceived. At first the burden was light, and she carried the child easily. When the burden grew heavy, they cried out to God, their Lord, “Grant us a fine child, and we shall be truly grateful!” Yet when God granted them a fine child, they set up other gods besides God, giving thanks to them for what God had done. May God be exalted above all gods.
Today’s Hadith is about Parents
Abu Usaid Malik bin Rabi`ah As-Sa`idi RA reported: We were sitting with Messenger of Allah (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) when a man of Banu Salamah came to him and asked, “O Messenger of Allah! Is there any obedience to parents left that I can show to them after their death?” He (sallallaahu ’alayhi wa sallam) replied, “Yes, to pray for them, to supplicate for their forgiveness, to fulfil their promises after their death, to maintain the ties of kinship which cannot be maintained except through them, and honour their friends.”
