|Experience by Ishrat Ali|
Bismillah Ar Rahman Ar Raheem. All Praise be to Allah Subhana Wa Ta’ala.It is a great blessing to have my parents Alhamdulillah. Our parents always love us so much and want what is best for us. Sometimes we don’t even think about it but it’s so true. If you feel any pain, even if it’s the middle of the night they will rush you to the hospital to make sure you are alright. They sacrifice their sleep and everything for us. They sacrifice and sacrifice a little by little each and every time without saying anything.
They love us unconditionally and never ask for anything in return.
I love my parents very much Alhamdulillah. Many times if I get grumpy or sad, they try to help me with my problem. They can easily tell when I am happy and when I am sad. They know me so well more than anyone else. I just wonder; they are like my best friends to me.
One thing I love the most is the smile of my parents. Just one smile! If they look at me and smile at me once, no matter how upset I am or angry at others, I feel good. It feels like suddenly all the thorns of my path changed into roses. It’s a great feeling subhanAllah! That one smile makes me feel that Allah is pleased with me. If I was given chance after another, I would do everything to make them smile and keep them happy.
When they become happy with me, I become so cheerful Alhamdulillah. My eyes fill with joy and no other person can really make me feel this happy. My friends do try to cheer me up and I cheer up but it’s a lot different when my parents do it. They listen to me when I come to them with any problem I have and their sound knowledge in Islam is amazing mashAllah. They give me advice better than anyone and it helps me a lot. Alhamdulillah.
We should always keep our parents and also our grandparents in our Duas. Life would have been much more harder without them. I ask Allah Subhana Wa ta’ala to bestow His mercy and love upon the orphans. Ameen
Allah says in the Qur’an:
“Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honour. And, out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: ‘My Lord! Bestow on them Your mercy even as they cherished me in childhood.” (Qur’an 17:23-24)
