Dear friends, I hope you had a great Eid.
In this time, we have begun to notice common problems between parents and children, and this weakens the relationship between them due to understanding and communication. We will try to talk about how to solve these problems.
The relationship between family members is not only mother, father, brother and sisters. There should also be friendships. The father is a friend with his children and; the children are friends to their mother and father.
The relations between the family consists of love, affection, commitment and this is what requires in a friendship. No one can tolerate and give you from the fruit of their hearts other than your father and mother. They care for all basic needs such as food, water, love and shelter and even abandon their sleep for your sake. No matter how much thanks, respect and appreciation, it would not be enough for our father and mother.
Our fathers loved us and this is due to the grace of Allah (The Most High). We should not let things weaken the relationship because there are many more good things they have done than what he did not do as the father takes care of everything related to his children and this is why we need to show mercy so Allah (The Most High) has mercy upon us.
"And lower to them the wing of humility out of mercy and say, "My Lord, have mercy upon them as they brought me up [when I was] small."
[Quran, Surah Isra, 17:24]
May God have mercy on yours and my parents. This is how we should solve problems, show mercy and do not let the Shaytan control you and the way you think.
We should not say things like
"I will not give to my father as he did not give to me".
"I will not respect him because he did not respect me"
Allah says in the Quran:
"And We have enjoined upon man, to his parents, good treatment. His mother carried him with hardship and gave birth to him with hardship, and his gestation and weaning [period] are thirty months. [He grows] until, when he reaches maturity and reaches [the age of] forty years, he says, "My Lord, enable me to be grateful for Your favour which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents and to work the righteousness of which You will approve and make righteous for me my offspring. Indeed, I have repented to You, and indeed, I am of the Muslims."
[Quran, Surah Al-Ahkaf, 46:15]
