Treating the mother kindly but receiving no kind treatment

A: Children owe their parents great rights, especially the mother. Accordingly, you must treat your mother kindly, do not hurt her, tolerate her offenses, and do not ask her to treat you kindly. Allah (Exalted be He) says, And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was young." Allah (Exalted be He) also says, And We have enjoined on man to be good and dutiful to his parents (Part No. 25; Page No. 189) Allah says, And We have enjoined on man to be dutiful and kind to his parents. He (Exalted be He) says, Say (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم): "Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from: Join not anything in worship with Him; be good and dutiful to your parents Moreover, you must fear Allah, Who says, ...and whosoever fears Allâh and keeps his duty to Him, He will make his matter easy for him. May Allah grant us success in what pleases Him!May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
