Hadith Explanation


Insulting One’s Parents


Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-Aas (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “It is one of the gravest sins (kaba’ir/enormities) to abuse one’s parents.” It was asked: “Oh Messenger of Allah! Can a man abuse his own parents?” The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “Yes! He insults the father of somebody who in return insults his father; he then insults the mother of somebody who in return insults his mother.” [Sahih Bukhari]

We learn from this hadith that one should not insult anyone’s parents, because if his parents are abused in return he will be responsible for disgracing his own parents. This is practical advice that encourages us to think about the consequences of our utterances.
