Shaykh Yasir discusses the Du’a we must make for our parents.
And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, “My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small.”
[Surah al-Isra, Verse 24]
The mother and the father is the widest door to Jannah as said by the Prophet ﷺ. There are numerous Hadith that reassert the supreme status of the parents which is next only to Allah and the Prophet ﷺ.

smilla Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah vida de he was a woman was murdered. We are continuing today with the two hours of the Quran and today we are going to do to add that to the all of you should be familiar with. It is suited at is SRA verse 24. So that is verse 23. Excuse me, and it is with regards.
It is with regards to the rights of the parents and it is a do either we have all memorized Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, wakad autoboca Allah Tabu Illa your Lord has decreed that none should be worshipped except him. What meanwhile the daily Asana and that you practice your son with your parents. If the one or the both of them become elderly or old age then not do not even say off to them and say to them the best of speech and lower unto them the wings of mercy will call Rob Burnham, Houma, camara Bayani sala de la and say Allah have mercy on them, just as they took care of me just as they raised me as I was a child while called Rob Durham, Houma come out of biani, Sameera
some of the commentators commented that this is part of the icing on every Muslim because Allah is speaking to the whole oma and he says well, cool, Rob Durham, Houma and you all have you should pray for your parents and say, Rob Burnham, Houma, Kamara, biani saphira. And of course, the rights of the parents are that which is well known, I must have given talks every one of us has heard these talks, we all know the ayah tena Hadith, yet it is always beneficial to remind ourselves of their rights. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the parent is the widest door to Jenna, the parent, the mother, and the father is the widest door to agenda. So you look at the
status of that door in your life and either take advantage of it or turn away from it. This is what the prophet system said. And while it and the wild humans father or mother, unguided your parent is osato awaba agenda is the largest door to gender. So you see what your status and your relationship is with that door. And we all know the famous Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that when demand came and said, who deserves my most compassion and love? He said, your mother, your mother, your mother than your father. These are all a happy that we have memorized, as well. The famous incident of Abdullah bin Ibis, the famous Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used
to live in Makkah as we know, he used to live in Mecca. And one day he was doing pull off, and an elderly lady was on the back of a man. And the man said, Oh, even abus I have traveled with my mother from Iraq, and she wanted to do Hajj, we couldn't afford an animal. So I'm carrying her on my back. This is a famous incident in the books of history. I'm carrying her on my back and I came for edge. Have I repaid the obligation of my mother to me, now is my father done. And even my boss said, not even a bit of it, but you have done good and Allah will reward good. You haven't even done a fraction. The Arabic word not even one Pang, one squeeze a verse, meaning that when she gave birth
to you, from the beginning of that birth, the pangs of birth, you have even repaid that, but you have done good and Allah will reward good when he was asked how did he not do your son to his mother? or Why didn't you do with the help of his mother in a bus replied that because the psychology of the two is different. The mother sacrificed out of love wanting the child to flourish. But now that the child is an adult, the child does as duty waiting for the mother to die. The tour is totally different. The mother does what she does, wanting the child to live and flourish, giving everything up for the child. Now that the child is an adult, now the child feels like the parent is
a burden. I just have to do my homework, I have to do my wajib waiting for the parent to die. The two are not the same. You cannot compare the two that the one wants you to live and the other one is paying off a debt and considering it to be a burden in another famous incident have it been a bust and remember, it'd been a bust lived in Makkah. So a person fled from whatever city he was in, and he was a murderer and he fled to Makkah and you know in our [???]ty I when you flee to Macau, you're protected. And he said to him in a bus, oh, even a bus. I became angry at so and so and I stabbed him I killed him. Now I have come to repent. What should I do? I want to repent from the murder I
have done so if an Ibis said Alex is your mother's still alive for law he nothing forgives sins, like being good to one's mother. So the murder is coming. And it's been a blessing. I cannot think of anything better for you to do than to be good to your mother. And we all know the famous Hadith of the Prophet Allah
Allahu alayhi wa sallam, that when somebody passes away, all of the doors of good are cut off, all of the deeds are cut off, except for three things of them is sort of a God of perpetual charity of them is the knowledge that the person has left behind. And of them is the righteous child, son or daughter, that makes dua for the parents that have gone on. So of the obligations of the parents is that even after the parents have left, we continue to make to offer them the health of the parent does not stop with death, the health of the parent does not stop with death. Rather, the health of the parent is always on the child as long as the child is alive. As long as the soldier daughter is
alive, they should make up for their mother and their father. And inside the man came to the Prophet sallallahu I sent him he said, O Messenger of Allah, my mother just passed away. What can I do to help her? Is there anything I can do to help her and the Prophet sallallahu I sent him said, Yes, you can. And he listed six or seven things. The number one thing that he said, Do Allah make dua for her out of the whole list he said, go for Hajj, do not give sadaqa but the first thing that he said make dua for her. So this is the most important mechanism to benefit your mother or your father and also to your brothers and sisters making the offer the parents doesn't have to wait until they have
gone you can make dua when they're alive. You should make dua when they're alive. The phrase or Burnham Houma, Kamara, biani salia you can say it when they're alive. In fact, you should stay at their at during their life and you continue to say after their death as well. So the phrase is a perpetual phrase that should always be on your lips or better. I'm Houma, Kamara, biani, Sameera and to make dua for one's parents was the practice of the righteous predecessors and the prophets even before us we learn in the Quran that should a man at his Salaam said called or below zero need an escort an emetic allottee and amateur Allah Yahweh Allah wa de de O Allah allow me to thank the
blessings you've given me and the blessings you gave my parents the prophet SAW a man as well we have is the Prophet Ibrahim making up that Robin officially worthy worthy they are well meaning Allah forgive me Forgive my parents and forgive all the believers the Prophet nor in the Quran mix the two up Robin officially what he what he did what he meant and what it means moving at our love Forgive me Forgive my parents and forgive every believer who ever entered my house. So we have here in the Quran, multiple two hours of the prophets themselves, asking Allah to forgive their parents and that is the the role model that has been set for us when the famous Sahabi and the cousin and
the Hawaii of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abdullah Abu Zubaydah died. His son Ahmed said later on in his life, his son Ahmed said that after my father Abdullah Abu Zubaydah died for an entire year, every time I raised my hands up to Allah subhanho wa Taala. I could only make dua for him. No other do. I came out of my mouth. The only thing that came was to art for my father for an entire year. The son of Abdullah who was obeyed, could not make any except for the for his father and Sophia who the famous teacher, mumble Buhari and others. He mentioned when he quoted the verse that undisputedly what he what he do when Allah says in the Quran, be thankful to me and be thankful
to your parents, Sophia aprns said whoever prays the five Salawat he has been thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada. And whoever makes dua for his parents after every single Salah he has been thankful to his parents. So Allah says in the Quran initially, while he was reading, be thankful to me and be thankful to your parents. And this great scholar, the greatest scholar of his era, he was the teacher of Mr. Bahati, the great scholars of the past of Hades, he said, This means you better pray your five son a lot and after every Salah you raise your hand up and you make dua for your parents. So this is a law that we should put into our daily lives regardless of whether our parents are with
us or they have moved on and we should make dua for them constantly because this is what Allah subhana wa tada himself commanded us. And and of course, this is what we learned from the the the lies of the previous companions and the previous prophets as well. And this is the famous do that work for Rob Durham, Houma come, Rob Bernie salera Our Lord have mercy on them as they raised me when I was a child, may Allah subhana wa tada Have mercy on all of our parents. May Allah azza wa jal grant them agenda to for those May Allah exalt their ranks, if they have passed on. May Allah make their graves a vast place of light. May Allah subhana wa tada allow them to be with the Shabbat
of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we will continue tomorrow with cinema De La Habra comes from
