Sayyidi wa sanadi Shaykh Mohammad Taqi Usmani (Allah preserve him)adviced us on eid al-adha (1426 H):
“Parents are a blessing.
Take advantage of their presence by serving them abundantly. The services rendered to them are most superior to all other nafil forms of worships, like salat, tasbeeh, zikr, etc.
Be excessively humble in dealing with them. Especially so when they are aged, short tempered and even openly absurd.”
