Benefits of respecting elders

Hazarat Anas (R.A.) relates that the Prophet (Peace be upon him) said, “ For a youth who respects and old man, because of his age, Allah appoints people who shall respect the young man in his old age.” It was also the practice of the noble Prophet (Peace be upon him) that if a young member of a delegation began to speak, the Prophet (Peace be upon him) asked him to let the elders speak first. This shows the great emphasise, laid by our noble Prophet (Peace be upon him) upon respect for elders. (Riyadul Jannah. V.8 No5. Page...

Hazrat Ali ibn-Abu Talib’s (R.A) instructions to his son

  “ My son, fear Allah both secretly and openly; Speak the truth whether you be calm or angry; Be economical, whether you be poor or rich; Be just to friend and foe; be resigned alike in times of adversity and prosperity. My son, he who sees his own faults has no time to see the fault of others; He who is satisfied with allotments of providence does not regret the past; He who unsheathes the sword of aggression will be killed by it; He who digs a pit for his brother will fall in it; He who forgets his own sins makes much of the sin of...

In fact this has been observed in Mosques frequented by children. The carpets are defiled and have to...

Many mothers are dumped into old people’s residential homes where they are cared for and nursed by others, what a shame! And then, come mother’s day and the sons and daughters turn up with bunches...
