From Abdullah Ibn Mas’ud ra said: “I asked the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam about which practice Allah the Exalted likes the most? He replied, “Pray at its time.” Then what? He replied, “Do good to both parents.” Then what? He replied, “Jihad fi sabilillah.”
  3. Praying for parents will also get rid of various difficulties and problems faced. As the Messenger of Allah said that the pleasure of Allah is the pleasure of both parents.
  4. Open the door of fortune, Maintaining good relations with fellow human beings especially with parents is one way to open the door of fortune. As narrated through friends, that anyone who wants abundant fortune and long life then he should maintain friendship.
  5. Opening the way to heaven, glorifying parents and even said to make it easier for a servant to go to heaven. In a narration it is narrated, Jibril once said to the Messenger of Allah, “Woe and humiliation to those who feel alive with their parents, but that does not necessarily make them enter the paradise that Allah has promised.
