Parents' Love For Their Children

Assalamualaikum wa Rahmatullaah wa Barakaatuh,

I downloaded these pictures from somewhere which i already forgot.

They are very meaningful for me.

The pictures' wordings are in Chinese character. Thus, I tried to translate them to English, so that everyone can understand. By the way, I am not a professional translator. So, if anyone who has better translations, please do let me know ya. Thanks...

When you are not at home, they will just eat as simple as they could. 
When you are at home, they prepare great meals for you everyday.

When you are not at home, they will view your profile again and again to follow the updates.
When you are at home, they always have lots of exhortation to say to you.

When you are not at home, they keep talking about you intentionally or unintentionally in front of other people.
When you are at home, they keep giving you the cold-shoulder.

When you are not at home, you have taken up the burden of life.
When you are at home, your parents are deeply touched if you help them doing some housework.

When you are not at home, you are smart and competent.
When you are at home, you are a child who always need to be taken care of.

They are your people first thought when you are wronged.
They are your initial energy source of your hard work.

However, one day, you will find out...
Many things that they should be able to do, become very difficult for them to do.
Their memory becomes poorer and poorer.
Their hearing also getting worse.

The faster you run, but you do not realize that they walked slower and slower.
The bigger and stronger your are, they also getting older.
When you get used to the days of their existence,
you even forget that they will..... LEAVE.

You cannot think of.
This thought makes a deep fear.
When you finally realize, it's time to pay back them.

So, faster go home, before it is too late!

Say hello to all the parents of the world. You have worked hard.

# # #       Friendly Reminder       # # #

Love your parents and treat them with loving care.
For you will only know their value when you see their empty chair. :'(

Let's not forget to appreciate our parents.
No matter what, remember that they have brought us into this world
and raised us up with countless sacrifices.

"We never prayed to have them. But they may have prayed to have us."

In addition, Islam has thought us:

"And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small."

[Al Isra'a 17:23-24]


P/S: It reminds me of my parents who stay at Sarawak. I miss them so much... Sob sob... :'(
