(I)

 

وَبِالْوَالِدَيْنِ إِحْسَانًا إِمَّا يَبْلُغَنَّ عِندَكَ الْكِبَرَ أَحَدُهُمَا أَوْ كِلاَهُمَا فَلاَ تَقُل لَّهُمَآ أُفٍّ وَلاَ تَنْهَرْهُمَا وَقُل لَّهُمَا قَوْلاً كَرِيمًا وَاخْفِضْ لَهُمَا جَنَاحَ الذُّلِّ مِنَ الرَّحْمَةِ وَقُل رَّبِّ ارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِي صَغِيرًا رَّبُّكُمْ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا فِي نُفُوسِكُمْ إِن تَكُونُواْ صَالِحِينَ فَإِنَّهُ كَانَ لِلأَوَّابِينَ غَفُورًا (17: 23-25)

And [your Lord has enjoined you] to be extremely kind to your parents. If either or both of them reach old age in your presence, show them no sign of irritation, nor scold them; but speak to them kind words. And treat them with humility and tenderness and pray: “Lord! Be merciful to them the way they cared for me when I was an infant.” Your Lord best knows what is in your hearts. If you remain good to them, [then be informed that] He will forgive those who turn to Him. (17:23-25)

 

(II)

 

وَوَصَّيْنَا الْإِنسَانَ بِوَالِدَيْهِ حَمَلَتْهُ أُمُّهُ وَهْنًا عَلَى وَهْنٍ وَفِصَالُهُ فِي عَامَيْنِ أَنِ اشْكُرْ لِي وَلِوَالِدَيْكَ إِلَيَّ الْمَصِيرُوَإِنْ جَاهَدَاكَ عَلى أَنْ تُشْرِكَ بِي مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ فَلَا تُطِعْهُمَا وَصَاحِبْهُمَا فِي الدُّنْيَا مَعْرُوفًا وَاتَّبِعْ سَبِيلَ مَنْ أَنَابَ إِلَيَّ ثُمَّ إِلَيَّ مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَأُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ(31:15-14)

And We have advised man regarding his parents – His mother carried him with [such hardships as resulted in] weakness upon weakness, and his weaning takes two years – “Be grateful to Me and to your parents. And towards Me alone is the return.” And if they [your parents] force you to ascribe to Me partners of which you have no knowledge, do not obey them; however, treat them kindly in this world, and follow the way of those who turn to Me. Then to Me shall you return, and I will inform you everything you had been doing. (31:14-15)
