The beauty of parental love is that it’s the only form of love that is truly selfless, unconditional and forgiving. We have to earn love from the rest of the world. It is impossible for a child to fully reciprocate the love we were shown back to our parents. Understanding that this can never fully be repaid shouldn’t stop us from trying though. One of the best repayments we can make is to honor them daily by including them in our duas. Also, it’s important for us to understand that as children we are a form of sadaqah jariyah (continuing charity) for our parents.
Whenever you remember to exercise good judgement, act with good adab (etiquette), or be of service to others our parents will be on the receiving end of the blessings for what they have instilled in us. This is the mercy of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. Inshallah by the end of this article you will have uncovered some beautiful duas from the Qur’an you can recite daily asking for parents good health, a dua for parents happiness and to live a long life.
