In Response To: Supporting parents (Muhammad Rafi)

Dear Rafi Bhai,

The Qur'an repeatedly ordains kindness and good treatment, fulfilling the parents' needs and giving them good company all through. The command includes boys and girls both.

Please also check the verses referred to within brackets.

31:13 Luqman, enlightening his son, said this to him, "O My dear son! Never associate anyone with God, for assigning ‘partners’ to Him is a tremendous wrong.”

31:14 “(And O My dear son! God says): We have ordained upon man goodness to his parents. His mother bore him by bearing strain upon strain, and his utter dependence on her lasted no less than two years. So, be grateful to Me and to your parents, and remember that your ultimate destination is with Me.” [2:233, 46:15]

31:15 “Yet, if they strive to make you ascribe partners to Me, you will have no such knowledge, so obey them not. However, bear them company in this world with kindness. And follow the path of those who turn toward Me. In the end, all of you will return to Me. And thereupon I will make you understand all that you did.” [7:189, 31:14]
