About this episode

Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi analyses verses 23 and 24 of Surat Al-Isra that illuminate us about the status of parents in Islam.

The status of the parents is second only to the status of Allah SWT. The easiest way to enter Jannah is through obedience to the parents. The widest of Jannah gates are for those who are obedient and good to parents.

"And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment. Whether one or both of them reach old age (while) with you, say not to them (so much as), "uff," and do not repel them but speak to them a noble word. 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." 

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said: “One who pleases his parents has verily pleased Allah, and one who has angered his parents has verily angered Allah.”

We are also acquainted with the numerous ways we can benefit the parents even after they have passed away.

Listen intently to this emotional lecture and imbibe the message that comes across.
