Hierarchy of rights

Hadhrat Mawlana Riffat Ahmad (may Allah grant him long and healthy life) said,

“In contrast to prevalent understanding Hadhrat Hakim al-Umma Mawlana Ashraf ‘Ali Thanawi (may Allah have mercy on him) used to emphasize that the the rights of the parents supersede that of the Shaykh. That is, rights of parents come first, then come the rights of one’s teacher and finally the rights of Shaykh.”
