The Imam of Sultanat Mosque Adewole, Ilorin, Ustaz Murtador Sultan
Kamaldeen has cautioned  Muslims against treating their parents badly.
Imam Kamaldeen during Jummaat  sermon (Khutba), recently, noted that
it’s very important for Muslims to always be conscious of any act that
will make them sins against their parents which will attract the wrath
of Almighty Allah.
He also said that, goodness to parents is an act of worship and means
of thanking God so as to appreciate the parents hard work from the
pregnancy level to the stage they are now, in which Almighty Allah
appreciate most.
According to him, God Almighty in the holy Qur’an instructed Muslims
that we should direct our worship to no one but for God alone.
“Let your worship be only for God, don’t worship, bow or place
anything above Almighty Allah. After that do good to your parents.”
Kamaldeen said, “We have to take care of our fathers and mothers, they
endured a lot of pain during pregnancy and delivery to take good care
of us. We should thank God for easing our passage to come to this
world safely during delivery and also thank our parents for the pains
they passed through and also for taking good care of the stage we
are.”
He said the happiness of parents is for a child to be good to both of them.
“Our parents are the means to our success and also can lead to ill
luck in our lives through the kind of attitude we portray towards
them.
“They are also a means to our entering paradise or hell on the day of
judgement depending on the character we exhibit towards them”, he
added.
Imam Kamaldeen also said that, “Prophet Mohammad (S.A.W) said that,
there are some sins categorised as major sins like worshiping other
gods instead of Allah, disobeying parents, testifying to what is not
real among others.”
He enjoyed Muslims to embarked on good deeds and avoid offending their
parents. “If you don’t make your parents happy, it is a big sin. The
Prophet (SAW) said that, on the Day of Judgement, God will punish any
Muslim that didn’t do good deeds to their parent.”
He further urged Muslims to follow the part of Allah and continue to
be good to their parents to meet with the favour of God on the Day of
Judgement.
