[2:83] We made a covenant with the Children of Israel: “You shall not worship except GOD. You shall honor your parents and regard the relatives, the orphans, and the poor. You shall treat the people amicably. You shall observe the Contact Prayers (Salat) and give the obligatory charity (Zakat).” But you turned away, except a few of you, and you became averse.
To honor our parents we need to first be appreciative of the system that God developed that each child is brought into this life by means of a mother and a father. While not everyone will have a mother and father in their life for those of us who do it is a real blessing and something that we should always be appreciative of. All of us have parents. And our parents made a lot of sacrifices and selfless acts to help bring us up the best they could. Having children is a very selfless act and you really appreciate your parents that much more after having your own children and seeing all the work they put into raising us.
Thank you God for our parents and their continuous love and care that they show us.
