Chapter 3:

On Dutifulness to One’s Father

1. Abu Hurayra said:

“Someone asked,

‘Messenger of Allah, towards whom should I be dutiful?’

He said, ‘Your mother.’

He was asked, ‘Then towards whom?’

He said, ‘Your mother.’

He was asked, ‘Then towards whom?’

He said, ‘Your mother.’

He was asked, ‘Then towards whom?’

He replied, ‘Your father.’” (Authentic)


Commentary:
Being kind hearted and respectful towards the father and the obligation of doing so is evinced in this hadeeth.


2. Abu Hurayra said:

A man came to the Prophet of Allah ﷺ and asked:

“What do you command me (to do)?”

He replied, “Be dutiful towards your mother.”
Then he asked him the same question again and he replied, “Be dutiful towards your mother.”
He repeated it yet again and the Prophet replied, “Be dutiful towards your mother.”

He repeated the question a fourth time and the reply was, “Be dutiful towards your mother.”
Then he asked the question a fifth time and the Prophet said, “Be dutiful towards your father.” (Authentic)
