Allah Almighty says:
“Your Lord is most knowing of what is within yourselves. If you should be righteous [in intention] – then indeed He is ever, to the often returning [to Him], Forgiving.” (17:25)
This aayah has been cited by Allah Almighty after Allah Almighty commands us to worship none but Him and to be dutiful to our parents.
Many people hear these aayaat and say I know that I have to be good to my parents, but you don’t know my parents…They are hard to please…
Subhanallah, in these aayaat we find a reminder from Allah Almighty, for Allah Almighty is promising us that He will judge our efforts towards our parents as well as our efforts in all endevours based on the level of sincerity of our intentions. Allah Almighty also promises to perpetually forgive those who intend Allah Almighty in their affairs.
We should also take note that In this ayah, Allah uses the word “awwab” which also carries a meaning related to an ‘arrival back’ after a long journey away.
The usage of this word is an inspiration for those who have experienced a turbulent relationship with their parents. For those who feel that the damage is so deep and the relationship is so far gone that the mere though of rekindling a relationship with their parents is an impossibility. It serves as an inspiration in that Allah Almighty encourages us to head back and create an ‘arrival back’ irrespective of how far down the road we have gone.
Allah Almighty is inspiring us to just head back, with a sincere intention, promising us a second chance!
May Allah almighty forigve us and preserve our parents in His obedience, Ameen.
For those who have lost their parents; may Allah make their graves gardens from the gardens of Jannah. Ameen.
Please do me a favour everyone. Before you put your phone down; please send a message to your parents thanking them for being your parents. Seek their forgiveness for your mistakes in your life towards them and ask Allah Almighty to shower His mercy upon them for they raised and nurtured you when you were young…😢
Please share this message with your friends and families and loved ones.
I love you all for the sake of Allah.
