However Well You’ve Treated Them…

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

However well you’ve treated your parents, when they leave this world, you’re going to find [yourself] blaming [yourself] in your heart, if only your good treatment of them had been [even] greater than what it was.

Your good treatment of your parents is [first of all] a blessing from Allāh upon you, before you see it as a blessing from Allāh upon them.
