Monthly allocation for parents
Keep a share of monthly income for deceased parents
FOR THOSE OF US THAT LOST THEIR PARENTS;
DO YOU STILL SHARE YOUR SALARY WITH THEM
SUBHANALLAH! WHAT A REMINDER STORY: –
One day, while sitting next to a friend, I noticed that he was busy redistributing his salary.
1. Utility: 5000
2. Rent: 6000
3. Medicine: 2000
4. Mum: 3000
5. Dad: 3000
I knew his parents were no more so curiously asked him about the money he allocated for them. He smiled back and answered.
“Yes, my parents are no more, yes they are gone but that does not mean that they are gone from my heart. They are very much with me. They will always be in my heart. They need me more now. They need my duas and sadaqas, which I regularly do for their welfare. Shouldn’t I be doing this much for them? Remember, the haq (rights) of parents do not seize with their death…”
Subhanallah, doesn’t that make you think right?
May Allah bless our parents.
A time for retrospection: when last did we do sadaqah on behalf of our parents whether still living or deceased?
Food for thought and a reminder for you , YES you , to everyone and me too!
