عن أبي هُرَيْرَةَ قال قال رَجُلٌ يا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ من أَحَقُّ الناس بِحُسْنِ الصُّحْبَةِ قال أُمُّكَ ثُمَّ أُمُّكَ ثُمَّ أُمُّكَ ثُمَّ أَبُوكَ ثُمَّ أَدْنَاكَ أَدْنَاكَ

Abu Hurayrah (rta) said: “A person asked: ‘O Messenger of God! Who amongst people is the most deserving of my good treatment?’ He replied: ‘Your mother, then your mother, then your mother, then your father, then your nearest relatives according to their order [of nearness].’”[1]

 

عن يَزِيدَ بن أبي حَبِيبٍ أَنَّ نَاعِمًا مولى أُمِّ سَلَمَةَ حدثه أَنَّ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بن عَمْرِو بن الْعَاصِ قال أَقْبَلَ رَجُلٌ إلى نَبِيِّ اللَّهِ  صلى الله عليه وسلم  فقال أُبَايِعُكَ على الْهِجْرَةِ وَالْجِهَادِ أَبْتَغِي الْأَجْرَ من اللَّهِ قال فَهَلْ من وَالِدَيْكَ أَحَدٌ حَيٌّ قال نعم بَلْ كلاهما قال فتبتغى الْأَجْرَ من اللَّهِ قال نعم قال فَارْجِعْ إلى وَالِدَيْكَ فَأَحْسِنْ صُحْبَتَهُمَا

Yazid ibn Abi Habib reported that Na‘im, the freed slave of Umm Salamah reported to him that ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘As (rta) said: “A person came to the Prophet (sws) of God and said: “I [would like to] pledge allegiance to you for migration and jihad seeking reward only from God.” He [the Prophet (sws)] replied: “Is any of your parents alive?” The person said: “Yes; in fact both are alive.” The Prophet (sws) further asked: “Do you want to seek reward from God?” He replied: “Yes.” At this, the Prophet (sws) said: “Go back to your parents and treat them with kindness.”[2]

 

عن أبيه عن أبي هُرَيْرَةَ عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال رَغِمَ أَنْفُ ثُمَّ رَغِمَ أَنْفُ ثُمَّ رَغِمَ أَنْفُ قِيلَ من يا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قال من أَدْرَكَ أَبَوَيْهِ عِنْدَ الْكِبَرِ أَحَدَهُمَا أو كِلَيْهِمَا فلم يَدْخُلْ الْجَنَّةَ

Abu Hurayrah (rta) reported that the Prophet (sws) said: “Let him be humbled into dust; let him be humbled into dust; let him be humbled into dust.” It was asked: “Who O God’s Messenger?” He said: “He who found either of his parents or both of them during their old age, but [still] did not enter Paradise [by serving them].”[3]
