Best Duas for Parents Blessings, Forgiveness in English

The heart of the child is softened and tolerant for the parents. This is why the father of Hazrat Ibrahim (peace be upon him), despite being an enemy of Allah, first prayed for his father. Then, when he realized that his father was an enemy of God, he severed ties with him.

This has become clear in Surah At-Taubah. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning): “And Ibrahim sought forgiveness of his father only because of that promise; Which he did with her. But when it became clear to him that he was an enemy of God, he severed ties with him. Abraham was a man of tender heart and tolerant.”

Narrated from Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Masood (may Allah be pleased with him) he said, ‘I asked the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him). Which is the best deed in the sight of God? He said, ‘Pray on time.’ I said, ‘Then which one? He said, ‘Then get along well with your parents.’ (Bukhari)

Good behavior with parents is the best possession for the child. If neither parent survives, what is to be done about childbearing? The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) determined that. It has been narrated in the hadith-

Narrated from Hazrat Abu Huraira Radiyallahu Anhu, he said that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, ‘Allaah will increase the status of any of His righteous servants in Paradise. The servant will then say, O my Lord! Where did all this (dignity) come from for me and for what reason?

Then Allaah will say, ‘Because your child has asked forgiveness for you (your dignity has been enhanced). (Musnad Ahmad)

In the above-mentioned hadith, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) has mentioned the virtue of the child’s prayer. So that all the children of the world may pray for their dead parents.

  1. please would request for a slight correction in the phantomatic translation of dua /aya in english (seems a typo mistake): Rabbi Hamhuma
    the last alphabet “bi” need to join with “r” before “hamhuma” that is missing
    correction would be in the start part: Rabbi rhamhuma
    this can be also written by joining last “bi” with “r”:
    Rabbir Humhuma Kama Rabba Yaani Sagheera
