Parents in the Qur’an

17:23 And your Lord decreed that you shall not serve except He, and do good to your parents. When one of them or both of them reach old age, do not say to them a word of disrespect nor shout at them, but say to them a kind saying.

17:24 And lower for them the wing of humility through mercy, and say: “My Lord, have mercy upon them as they have raised me when I was young.”

17:25 Your Lord is fully aware of what is in your souls. If you are good, then He is to the obedient a Forgiver.

31:14 And We enjoined man regarding his parents. His mother bore him with hardship upon hardship, and his weaning takes two years. You shall give thanks to Me, and to your parents. To Me is the final destiny.

14:35 AndAbraham said: “My Lord, make this a land of peace, and keep me and my sons away from serving statues.”

14:36 “MyLord, they have misguided many from among the people. So, whoever follows me, then he is of me, and whoever disobeys me, then You are Forgiving, Merciful.”

14:37 “OurLord, I have resided part of my progeny in a barren valley near your Restricted Sanctuary. Our Lord, that they may hold the contact prayer, so let the hearts of the people incline towards them and give provisions to them of the fruits that they may give thanks.”

14:38 “Our Lord, you know what we hide and what we declare. And nothing at all is hidden from God on the earth or in the heavens.”

14:39 “Praise be to God who has granted me to my old age Ishmael and Isaac; my Lord is Hearer of the prayer.”

14:40 “MyLord, let me hold the contact prayer, and also from my progeny. Our Lord, and accept my prayer.”

14:41 “Our Lord, forgive me and my parents, and the believers on the Day the judgment is called.”

19:12 “O John, take the Book with confidence.” And We gave him authority while in his youth.

19:13 And tenderness from Us, and purity, and he was ever righteous.

19:14 And dutiful to his parents, and never was he a disobedient tyrant.

19:15 And peace be upon him the day he was born, and the day he dies, and the Day he is resurrected alive.

27:19 He then smiled, amused by what she said. And he said: “My Lord, help me to be thankful for the blessings You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and that I may do good works that please You, and admit me by Your mercy with Your righteous servants.”

29:8 And We instructed man to be good to his parents. But if they strive to make you set up partners with Me, then do not obey them. To Me are all your destinies, and I will inform you of what you used to do.

46:15 And We enjoined man to do good to his parents. His mother bore him with hardship, gave birth to him in hardship, and his bearing and weaning lasts thirty months. So that, when he has reached his independence, and he has reached forty years, he says: “My Lord, direct me to appreciate the blessings You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and to do good work that pleases You. And let my progeny be righteous. I have repented to You; I am of those who have submitted.”

46:16 It is from these that We accept the best of their deeds, and We shall overlook their sins, among the dwellers of the Paradise. This is the promise of truth that they had been promised.

46:17 And the one who says to his parents: “Enough of you! Are you promising me that I will be resurrected, when the generations who died before me never came back?” While they both will implore God: “Woe to you; believe! For the promise of God is the truth.” He would say: “This is nothing except fictional tales of old!”

46:18 These are the ones against whom the retribution has been deserved in nations who had come before them of mankind and Jinn; they are the losers.

46:19 And to each will be degrees according to what they did, and He will recompense them and they will not be wronged.

71:28 “My Lord, forgive me, and my parents, and whoever enters my home as a believer, and the believing males, and the believing females; and do not increase the wicked except in destruction.”

2:83 And We took the covenant of the Children of Israel: “You shall not serve except God, and do good to your parents, and regard the relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and say kind things to the people, and hold the contact prayer, and contribute towards purification.” But then you turned away, except for a few of you; you were objecting.

2:180 It is decreed for you that if death should come to any of you, that it is best if he leaves a will for his family and relatives out of goodness; this is a truth for the righteous.

2:215 They ask you what they should spend, say: “What you spend out of goodness should go to your family and the relatives and the orphans, and the needy, and the wayfarer. And any good you do, God is fully aware of it.”

4:7 For the men is a portion from what the parents and the relatives left behind, and for the women is a portion from what the parents and relatives left behind, be it little or much; a forced portion.

4:33 And for each We have made inheritors for what was left behind by the parents and the relatives. And those bound by your oaths, you shall give them their portion. God is witness over all things.

4:36 And serve God and do not set up anything with Him, and do good to the parents, and the relatives, and the orphans, and the needy, and the neighbor who is a relative, and the neighbor nearby, and the friend nearby, and the wayfarer, and those maintained by your oaths. God does not love the arrogant, the boastful.

4:135 O you who believe, stand with justice as witnesses to God, even if against yourselves, or the parents or the relatives. Even if he be rich or poor, God is more worthy of them, so do not follow desire into being unjust. And if you twist or turn away, then God is Expert over what you do.

6:151 Say: “Come let me recite what your Lord has made unlawful for you: that you should not set up anything with Him – and do good to your parents; and do not kill your children for fear of poverty, We provide for you and for them; and do not come near immorality, what is public of it and private; and do not take the life which God has made forbidden, except in justice. That is what He enjoined you that you may comprehend.”

19:29 So she pointed to him. They said: “How can we talk to someone who is a child in a cradle?”

19:30 He said: “I am a servant of God, He has given me the Book and made me a prophet.”

19:31 “And He has made me blessed wherever I am, and He has charged me with the contact prayer and purification as long as I am alive.”

19:32 “And to be dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a mischievous tyrant.”

19:33 “And peace be upon me the day I was born, and the day I die, and the Day I am resurrected alive.”
