In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. REVERTS AND NON-MUSLIM PARENTS. Below are comments made by Imam, which I extracted from article:- Almighty Allah has emphasized that kindness to parents is one of the most important qualities of believers. He says in the Quran: "Thy Lord hath decreed, that ye worship none save Him, and (that ye show) kindness to parents. Allah (swt) says: "And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents: in travail upon travail did his mother bear him, and in years twain was his weaning: (hear the command), "Show gratitude to Me and to thy parents: to Me is (thy final) Goal. "But if they strive to make thee join in the worship with Me things of which thou hast no knowledge, obey them not; yet bear them company in this life with justice (and consideration) and follow the way of those who turn to Me: in the end the return of you all is to Me, and I will tell you all that ye did." (Luqman: 14 and 15) Kindness to parents is mentioned as a duty of believers several times in the Quran. There are many Hadiths that encourage us to be very kind to our parents. However, such kindness does not require a son or a daughter to obey his or her parents in whatever they may require of him or her. Suppose that a father asks his son to tell lie, give false testimony, or drink or do something forbidden. If the son complies with his father's wish, then he commits a sin that will not be less grave simply because he is carrying out his father's orders. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "No creature may be obeyed in what constitutes disobedience to the Creator." That applies even in simple matters. Suppose a father arrives from abroad, having bought a bottle of some expensive alcoholic drink and he asks his son to deliver it to a friend or a neighbour. If his son complies with his wishes and simply take the bottle to the person concerned, he commits a sin, because carrying an intoxicating drink to someone who will drink it is forbidden. The son must refuse to obey his father in such a situation. TO BE CONTINUED.........INSYA'ALLAH. ALLAH KNOWS BEST.

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. CONTINUATION FROM PREVIOUS POST. Below are comments from Imam..........continuation........... Once when he was trying to speak with her about Islam, she became insolent and uttered some insulting remarks about the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Because of this, Abu Hurayrah was very much pained. He went to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) and complained saying, "O Messenger of Allah! I have always been trying to make my mother accept Islam but she always refuses to accept it. But today when I asked her to believe in Almighty Allah, she became very much annoyed and started insulting and rebuking you which I could not stand and tears came to my eyes. O Messenger of Allah! Pray to Allah that He may open the heart of my mother to Islam." The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) immediately raised his hands and prayed. "O Almighty Allah, guide the mother of Abu Hurayrah." Abu Hurayrah was overjoyed and went home. When he reached home, he found the door was bolted from the inside but he heard the sound of flowing water, which assured him that his mother was taking a bath. Hearing his footsteps, she hastily finished the bath. Then she opened the door. She said, "O my son, Abu Hurayrah, Allah has heard you. Be witness that I recite the Shahadah." He started crying out of sheer joy and went back to the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) with the tiding that Almighty Allah had accepted his prayer and that his mother had embraced Islam. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was also pleased to hear that. He praised Allah and gave Abu Hurayrah some pieces of advice. Then, on his request, he prayed, "O Allah, put the love of Abu Hurayrah and his mother in the hearts of all true Muslims and put the love of all true Muslims in the hearts of both of them." Above are comments from Imam, extracted from article. ALLAH ALMIGHTY KNOWS BEST.

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. CONTINUATION FROM PREVIOUS POST. Below comments from Imam......... continuation.......... Being kind to parents and total obedience to them. Obedience must be discriminating. We obey our parents only in what is right and what is calculated to please Allah. But we should be kind to them in all situations. Allah Almighty says that if parents try hard to persuade their son to associate partners with Allah, then he must not obey them, but he should "........bear them company in this world's life with kindness." (Luqman:15). When the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him ) was told by one of his female companions that her mother, a non-believer, had come to visit her, he told her: "Be kind to your mother." Sheikh Muhammad Saleh Al-Munajjid, the prominent Saudi Islamic Lecturer and author, says: 1. You should address her in the best of terms and treat her in the best manner. 2. Do not think at all that there is any burden or sin on you if your mother gets angry with you for being a Muslim. Remember that when a person pleases Allah even though it makes people angry with him, Allah will be pleased with him and will make the people pleased with him. 3. Keep on praying for your mother so that Allah guides her to the truth, and invite her to Islam with wisdom and fair exhortation. Maybe Allah will guide her through you. The best thing to do for non-Muslim parents. While Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) embraced Islam, his mother continued to be an unbeliever for quite a long time. He continuously tried to convince her to adopt Islam, but to no avail. Nevertheless, he continued respecting and obeying her. TO BE CONTINUED...........INSYA'ALLAH. ALLAH KNOWS BEST.
