, Prophet Muhammad, peace
upon him said.
It is one of the greatest sins that a man should curse his parents
8.4 Narrated by Abdullah bin
says: Your Lord has enjoined the following: You should not worship anyone but Him Alone!

if either or both of them attain old age,
do not even say '

nor rebuke them;
but speak to them kind words.
Treat them with humility and tenderness
and pray, "O our Lord
merciful to them, just as they brought me up with kindness and affection in my childhood."
