Treating the Parents Friends Kindly

Abdullah bin Umar (radi Allahu anhum) reported that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “The finest act of goodness is that a person should treat kindly the loved ones of his father.”

[Sahih Muslim]


This Hadith teaches that after the death of one’s parents, one should maintain contact with their friends and treat them nicely. Besides being a great virtue it is warranted by the needs for showing compassion to relatives. To forget friends of one’s parents and break contact with them is condemned by the Shari’ah.

And Allah Knows Best!
