Respect and obey parents and teachers
Muslimcreed – O pious people, who is the most meritorious person in our lives? Of course parents and teachers. Parents have given attention and love to us since we were in the womb. A mother sincerely cares for a prospective baby in the womb for approximately nine months and ten days.
During pregnancy, a mother experiences worsening conditions. Even so, no complaints were spoken from a mother, why? Because everything is done with sincerity and full of love. So that the pain, pain, fatigue becomes lighter even that appears only a sense of happiness.
During childbirth, mothers risk their lives for the safety of their children. You can’t even imagine how painful it is to give birth. But no complaints from a mother.
The happy tears of a mother accompany the birth of her child. It doesn’t just stop there, a mother has to take care of her baby, breastfeed, change diapers, bathe, wash clothes, and accompany her to sleep with full sincerity. If the child wakes up in the middle of the night, the mother will wake up immediately to make sure the child is well.
Likewise a father, works hard every day to provide for the needs of his wife and children. A father faithfully accompanies and takes care of his wife while pregnant. Fathers also play an important role in maintaining the emotional stability of his wife. A wife who is stressed during pregnancy will affect the health of the fetus. Of course a father wants his children and wife to stay healthy.

All parents want their children to grow up to be smart, intelligent and pious children. O smart young generation, know that obeying and respecting parents is an obligation
