Question:What are the recommendations of the Holy Quran with respect to parents? Answer: Respecting parents and showing the proper behavior towards them are issues that are considered very important to Allah (SWT). As a result, a considerable number of verses in the Holy Quran and narrations from Prophet Muhammad (PBUH&HP) and his progeny are dedicated about parents. In browsing these verses and narrations, one may find that many of the explanations and expressions about respect to parents are very astonishing, and are not said about other topics.
Martyrdom of Imam Ali - Amir al-Mu'minin (PBUH)
Blessing and Opportunities are like a beautiful bird sitting by our window. The certainly can fly away in a blink of an eye. When faced with opportunities to do something good, such as nurturing ourselves, or an outlet to voice justice and are equipped to do so via our energy level, capabilities, or means, we must immediately make use of this opportunity. Forsaking such a blessing would be to not appreciate it, and thus losing it before we know it.
