Receiving wages for teaching the

Fatwa no. 14041 I live in a large religious family. However, my mother, who is 70 years old, does not offer Sawm (Fast) or Salah (Prayer). If we ask her whether she performed Salah, she replies in the affirmative, and when we try to teach her the matters of her Din, she cries and feels offended and says that she already knows all that. Not only that but she blames us for dealing unjustly with her. I regret talking to her in such a manner and feel that I have invoked the wrath of Allah (Exalted be He) and her, but if I stop advising her, she becomes heedless once again.I hope you could advice me what to do, and give me some advice that I should follow to help her adhere more to the teachings of Islam, In Sha’a-Allah (if Allah wills). May Allah reward you. Am I sinful for what I did with my mother?

(Part No. 12; Page No. 274)  A: You should behave leniently and kindly with her and continue to call her to perform Salah after explaining the religious rulings in this matter, so that Allah may guide her. I hope you will be greatly rewarded.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
