Allah Almighty Says: “Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that ye be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honour. And, out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: “My Lord! bestow on them thy Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood.” (Qur’an 17: verse 23 and 24)

-It is an obligation to worship Allah alone

-It is an obligation upon every Muslim to show filial piety and devotion to both parents

-It is a communal responsibility of the Muslim society to ensure the rights of parents upon their offspring.
