Being Passionate about Being Good to Our Parents

The shaikh, Dr. Muḥammad ibn Ghālib Al-ʿUmarī, may Allāh protect him, said:

Being dutiful and treating [one’s] father and mother well, [one of the greatest obligations in Islam], can happen by giving them money to spend every month, organizing a driver [for them], or bringing over a housemaid. In reality, though, it’s greater than that.

It’s being passionate about treating them well and being dutiful to them; [it’s] having a desire to do good for them, being happy to be of service [to them], and rushing [to care of their needs] before being asked to; [it’s] feeling glad and gratified that they’re around and feeling comfort and enjoyment in being near both of them.
