A true story of a rebellious daughter.

A few months ago, in a village lived an old man being left by his first and second wife to another world. Without doors and walls, he stayed at a guardhouse . He was abandoned by his daughter because she felt he had used much wealth of her mother (first wife). He was taken care by some generous villagers who gave gave him food everyday, regularly. Having known that, his daughter felt ashamed of him and wanted to send him to another village to be vagrant. The villagers opposed her decision badly and said, "Let us take care of your father. If you feel ashamed of him, go back to your place". She moved from her village to another town.

Two months later, her father died and she didn't go home for a visit despite hearing the news. After that, she went for Hajj to Mecca. Having come back home, she died on that day without any illness.

Dear friends, is this how we were thought to treat our parents? I believe that no matter how we think our parents are wrong, we SHOULD still RESPECT them. Even just to say 'hush' to parents is not allowed in my religion.

How should we treat our parents if we ever think that they are wrong?

Have you ever regretted for what you've done to your parents? 

I would say that an apology is better before we run out of time.

Thank you so much for being concerned about this discussion.

Dear ELF Noor sister,

Agree with you. We can never do anything for them equally as they did for us. What else can we do beside being an obedient son/daughter? Parents at least would only expect love and respect.

Thanks for being concerned about this matter. :)

Hi..yes good story...but what you do with parents what do not care for their children..they give birth after that they abandon this babies..they reach orphanage..and on this days happend very often...So can you have respect or carry for this type parents????

It is said that to become a parent is very easy but to be a good respected parent is hard work... talking from parent's view I can say that parents get back everything from the kids depends on how they treated them... if they gave them love, supported them, tried to raise them in the best way - then kids give them this all automatically back BUT in case parents didn't care, didn't give them time, didn't teach them anything - why would such parents get back love etc? Just because they are parents who gave nothing to own kids? I just think that parent's attitude towards own kids is reflection of how kids later treat them ;)

Hi Onee,

As we expect our children to respect us, we also should respect parents.

As for that girl, shame on her. I wonder what she asked of God in Mecca?!!!

Onee your story is an eye opener for those who don't realise their mistakes and apologise. We are bound to obey and respect our parents because Allah commanded us to do so. We should realise our responsibility toward our parents beacause when we were young they look after us they didn't leave us alone to enjoy their life. My father is not in this world but I miss him each and every moment of my life, I always ask Allah to grant him the best place in heaven and my mum is my life and I can't imagine my life without her.

Sir Dara,

Thank you for your sharing your view. Yes, it is absolute respect.

Sama sama Onee_Chan! You are welcome! Did you see that photo about lunch? Thanks!

Hi satt,

This is what I'm talking about. When we see them very wrong or even see they never took care of us children,,  should we treat them like a felon? Even a felon would have a chance to start over his/her life. A friend said, "From where we were born? Why need to be rough to them? Anyway, we are their descent". In my point of view, the most polite argument should be between children and parents, in whatever circumstances.

Thank you so much for commenting and sharing your view, Satt. I appreciate it.
