Parent: What do you get in return?

As a parent, you always have to be sure on every decision you make. You need to have solutions on every problem that encounters your love ones. You must always be brave especially in front of your dearie kids, because they always rely on you. They make you as their centre of reference.

But you are just a normal human being. You are not perfect. There are times when you feel week, frustrated, neglected, and surrender.

There are times when you want to run away from everything, or you might wanna blame fate or someone or anything towards the blunt sides of your life.

Instead, you do nothing but embrace your duties firmly, making sure nothing is left behind. You continue living...

Is there any way you could complain? Any time you could whine? Is that a proper thing a parent should do?

Despite all the burdens, weariness and hardness you carry on your shoulders, you still need to smile, and offers the best for your love ones.

But what do you get in return?

After all, you are still your kids’ favourite.
And they are the best things that had ever happen to your life!

Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.2
Narrated by Abu Huraira
A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Who is more entitled to be treated with the best companionship by me?" The Prophet said, "Your mother." The man said. "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "Your mother." The man further said, "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "Your mother." The man asked for the fourth time, "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "Your father."

Sahih Bukhari Vol. 8 : No. 18              
Narrated by Aisha
The Prophet (sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) said,"The word 'Ar-Rahm'(womb) derives its name from 'Ar-Rahman' (i.e. Allah). So whosoever keeps good relations with it (womb i.e. kith and kin), Allah will keep good relations with him, and whosoever will sever it (i.e. severs his bonds of kith and kin) Allah too will sever His relations with him."

    in return, the parents got the satisfaction and happiness being the parents. Though the rewards are (most of the time) are on the non-material things, at the end of the day we don't mind and we really embrace them.

  2. Salam,

    And the hadiths show that the ultimate reward is a special 'place' and dignity given by Allah...
