How do you respect an emotionally abusive parent?

00:00:07--> 00:00:43

What's amazing about the spirit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that you will find examples for every situation. And in the spirit of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, you have examples of the likes of Sodom who cos, and a border are the Allahu taala and homogeny that both of their parents, particularly their mothers, were very emotionally abusive towards them as Rob hora de Allahu anhu. His mother used to curse out to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. And as we're sad, even though because his mother used to tell him that she would starve herself to death unless he abandoned Islam. And in both of these situations, we find that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:00:43--> 00:01:21

sallam was very emotionally supportive. Now what I want to present to you over here, my dear brother, or my dear sister, is that this is a part of life, we will be tested through our relationships, and it's very important that we take care of ourselves, and we persevere, how exactly do we do that? Number one, understanding that in every single test that we face in life, Allah subhanaw taala is rewarding us, compensating us and taking care of us. So in such difficulties, always remember that Allah subhanaw taala is by your side, and Allah will never abandon you and is rewarding you for your patience. Number two, understanding that you are only responsible for

00:01:21--> 00:02:03

yourself and you're not responsible for what others say or do. So their words cannot harm you unless you allow them to do so. You are worth more in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala then the Kava itself, and that is where your honor lies, how Allah subhanho wa Taala views you so if your parents are emotionally abusive, and they say derogatory things to you, remember you are valued in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. And their words cannot harm you, unless you allow it to do so. And then number three, is understanding that everything is finite, you will get older, you will move out, perhaps your parents may even pass on or they may even be guided. So always focus on the present and

00:02:03--> 00:02:38

do not worry about what will happen in the future. And as long as you can get through the present in sha Allah the future will always be brighter as Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in sort of Doha, that which is to come is always better than that, which is now what a hero to highroller come in and oola always keep that in mind and have that optimistic mindset. Last but not least, keep making art to Allah subhanaw taala that Allah makes things easy for you and grant you the perseverance that you need to get through your situation. May Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for you and all the believers that are struggling alone.
