Obedience To Allah Only But Kindness To Parents Always | Mufti Menk

Allah says be charitable, be good, be kind. Who should I be kind to?


Allah Says (Surah An-nisa, V. 36), worship Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala alone, don’t associate partners with him and be kind to your parents.

Notice, Allah didn’t say obey your parents because obedience is for Allah.

Allah says you don’t have to listen to them when they are wrong. You have to be kind to them whether they are right or wrong. You have to respectfully disagree with them when they are wrong.

Remember if we would like goodness and kindness, if we would Comfort, be kind and respectful to the following categories: your parents then your relatives even if they are nasty people what’s stopping you from being kind and respectful even though you might keep a bit of a distance.

And then Allah says Be Kind to the orphans, be kind to the Beggars, the poor, the needy, be kind to your neighbors. Make sure that you’re very very good to your neighbors.

May Allah subhanahu wa’ta’ala help us and then he says Be Kind to Wayfarer a person who’s lost.
