There are two people in everyone’s lives who sacrifice greatly for our well-being. These two people are the parents.
Every single person of intellect, every single person of faith, have come to the conclusion that the parents are two people in someone’s life who must be appreciated. Allah has made a decree in the Quran that you don’t worship anyone other than Allah and right after that we must be dutiful to our parents.
Allah mentioned the parents, especially the mother, in the Quran and the importance of parents in our lives. That is why we should ask Allah to have mercy on our parents for they raised us up when we were small.
