The Optics Within Our EYES Sometimes Mislead Us....

RE-SHARE this Phenomenon

 *A trendy theme* #MothersDay
Let me shed some light over this which some of you have made yourself trendy...

Allah Subhanahu Taa'la says in the Holy Quran : Be thankful to Me and to your Parents ...Surah Luqman verse 14. 
If you study the verses related to the the rights of parents you will come  across many injuctions that gives us a good parameter to atleast analyse how good we are to our parents, rather how bad we are to them.
Is a mere "Thank you" or a card on "Parent's day" or just a hug with no warmth, enough to display our thank to our parents??

In Surha Baqarah verse 83, Allah swt says : We took a promise from the Bani Israel that they will not worship any one besides Allah and will be kind to  their parents... The arabic phrase here is : Wabil Walidayn ihasana...Ihsan in Urdu means to oblige someone. But in Arabic it means : To offer the best.

Ihsan also means better response for good , good for evil and it reflects in speech and action. In speech, the Qur'an gives and example inn Surah Nisaa..And when a  courtesou greeting is offered to you respond it with better.. the Arabic phrase for better response is..with ahsan...Ahsan is a superlative degree of good.. and the Hadith explains this verse : when some body says Assalamualaikum.. you reply him : walaykumussalam warahamtullah wabarakatuhu... Rahmatullahi and Barakatuhu are better reponse...

So how can we do ihsan with parents in  speech? Surah Isra , verse 23 says : Waqullahuma qaulan Kareema....and talk to them in an honourable manner...Don't instruct them but request them. Respond them politley.  Correct them respectfully. This is what the Qur'an instructs us when it says: do not say even "UFF" to them. Even a harsh father of Prophet Ibrahim was responded by his son by the term "Yaa Abaati " O my dear father". This  ihsan was  towards a father who is one of the biggest obstacle in his passion of Tawheed. Compare this with our corrections of our parents who are  regular in salah and nice people!

Even body language is a form of communication, isn't it? Looking harshly at parents can give you negative grades. Ibn Abbas said : Ihsan towards parents also include, not to shake one's clothes before them so as to prevent the dust from our clothers fall on them !
Allah loves kindness to Parents says a popular Hadith from Bukhari. But many of us exclude spending on parents. What ever  you spend  is good.. on parents.. So spending on parents is an act that qualifies you to stand in the ranks of those who do Ihasan with parents. A father has right to spend the money of his son. This is an Islamic ruling with no second opinion. Today we run out of our money in buying expensive gadgets for ourselves, while our parents run short of money for their medicines.  Let me whisper one more thing.. wasting your parent's money is also a bad conduct towards them.

Inspite of doing all these things have we really thanked our parents ? No not possible. Refer to Surha Luqman, verse 14 : In travail upon travail did his mother bear him.... means when we werein the womb of our mother she carried us with utmost care....and two years of weaning, says the verse..Can we carry our mother continuously for 24 hours day and night? No...Then how do we  thank her? Since we are not able to return their obligation with Ihsan, with better conduct they did to us,  so we continue doing best to them and yet leave the matter to Allah to reward them...
Note this Qur'anic verse : (Pray for them ) "Rabbir Hamhumaa Kamaa Rabbayaanii Sagheera"...My Lord ! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they cherished me in childhood...(17:23)

Thanks to everyone in China and Vietnam who still believes that RHINO HORN can cure disease...
You are all ensuring my kids may not see a live rhino in the wild by the time they're grown up.

More than 260 rhinos have been poached in 2013 alone!

You may not like to see this, but it's necessary that many people see the reality of rhino poaching. IF you report this photo as unsuitable you are just a douche.

A rhino crime scene: The recent poaching incident at Borakalalo. Thanks to demand from the East, rhino horn is ounce-for-ounce worth more than platinum or gold.

"........Breathing through a writhing mass of maggots and blood, his exposed sinus passages wheezed and struggled. They had cut him deep, wide and quickly, after a single shot to the head which hit his spine and knocked him out – but didn’t kill him. That was last weekend, and today being Friday meant a week of agony beyond any comprehension......."

Still alive after a week!

Photo: Apart from the vicious attack to his face and a gunshot wound to the head, the rhino also suffered two other injuries. In some incidents, poachers chop the upward facing eye - thought to be an act of superstition - and the spine of the rhino.
