Parents – A Blessing Of GOD

“I’m neither a beggar nor I’m poor but I’m poorer”

This too shall pass and that’s its beauty. Sometimes, it is cruel and rough shed while sometimes it is compassionate. Many people around you like your parents, grandparents, people in your neighbourhood like a retired eloquent professor who lives in your street, any old graceful lady who lives next door to you and either comment on your dressing while trying to seek your attention or passes friendly smiles from her window. But you are so busy that you can’t even smile her back.  The old guard at the gate of your society who spends his juvenescence life for your security and protection; the handicapped man having white beard who annoys you with his comprehension eyes, do you ever bother that all of them crave for your attention? They just need some of your time to make themselves happy. Several days ago I happened to see an old disabled man with one leg. I offered him some money but he refused by saying, “I’m neither a beggar nor I’m poor but I’m poorer. I spend the whole day outside from home because my sons, daughters in law and grandchildren think of me as an old showpiece whose existence is of no importance and its place is the silent corner of the house.”

That old man said that he just wanted to talk to us for a few minutes and it was really heartbroken.

“The best deed after prayer is a kindness to the parents.”
 (Sahih Muslim, Islamic Hadith Book)


Everyone is engrossed in life but spare a few minutes of your life for a daily talk to your elders, listen to their experiences and stories. Be their smile. They spend springtime of their life for you and in their autumn life, it’s your duty to be a flower and fragrance for them. They are poor because assets of their lives never have time for them and we are poorer because we have no time for our begetters.

    […] Parents play a vital role in giving life to a kid so they are also responsible for their kid’s upbringing and self-control. An analysis declared that parental involvement and emotional expressiveness is the most important thing in a child’s life. It is not that parents are not concerned about their children, but sometimes they are not as assertive as they should be. Parents force some decisions of their own onto their kids which put them to the verge of alienation. Specific steps must be taken to save such people to fall into drug addiction and as they say that ” Change comes from within” so parents should consider being more friendly than to present a strict picture of personality. So that children feel easier to talk to them about anything and any issue they are dealing with. […]
