How can you change your life?Log on to “Free Quran Education“on Youtube.
My teacher told me a story one time of a man who was walking with his son in [the] park
and they’re walking together and
The son looked at a crow [and] [a] tree
And he said baba, what’s that? It’s like two year old kid
Baba said it’s a crow
Baba, What’s that?
It’s a crow
Okay, baba. What’s that?
It’s a crow [oh]
Crow what’s that? It’s a crow it went on for 30 minutes. He asked me 30 times he counted
That kept a score and you put it in his little journal my son today
We were walking in the park asked me about a crow thirty times. It was the cutest thing in the world
Thirty years go by the son is not 2 the son is 32
Son fall father calls him son can I come over?
Dad it’s not a good time right now, son just bear with me. I just need that 10 to 15 minutes
That’s all I need just go for a drive. [I] need to talk to you about something um
whatever, you know what okay fine, so
He comes over gets in the car and [go] over drive over to a park
What’s this about dad can you tell me quickly I got things to do. Let’s take a walk with me. Son. It’s okay
Take a walk
See your crow in a tree
The Dad says son. What’s that?
Seriously father. It’s a crow
Is this a game ?
I have things to do okay. It’s a crow it’s a you can’t see. I just got you new glasses last month
How is this? Why is this happening to me? Dad why are you so difficult? I don’t understand what the problem is
Just tell me what you really want
I’m busy, okay
The Dad pulls out his journal
This is something that happened 30 years ago. We were walking down this part
You saw a crow
And you asked me 30 times and I gave you a smile every time
You couldn’t handle twice
What are we giving our parents?
I’m not even bringing Allah into the picture
The fact that Allah mentioned himself and then mentioned parents is
You think about that?
What have they done for us and what have we done [for] them?
What have we done for them?
how many parents Li-like their children are in ICU’s and
They stand there and hover over this little glass box with a baby inside
24 hours a day 7 [days] a week standing in a hospital not even sitting down standing in a hospital
like eating off feeding off of like vending machines and
That same kid grows up and doesn’t have the time to call
That same kid
You know how many mother’s almost died giving birth?
Almost died giving birth and now it’s so difficult to respond to her call
Or to just give her a just a couple of minutes a day
Just let her feel a little important
Now how unfair that is that you were the most important thing to them and [you’re] they are so insignificant to you
How unfair that is?
You know they carry that pain with them every day that I am nothing to my my children
I mean nothing’s that worthless to them
You know they have no time [for] me
When something is worth something to you it gets your time
Most of you at this age [you] want to just get away from your parents?
You just want to be with your friends you want to be all on your own you just don’t want to be with your parents
That’s you you develop this crooked habit now, and it will only get worse over time
have very very very
They’re very protective of us
For them you won’t know this until you become a parent for them. It doesn’t matter when you turn 60. You’re still their baby
They still they still remember changing your diaper?
They still remember feeding you milk they still remember burping you and cleaning up after you you know peed in the backseat
They still remember that you don’t remember that they remember that?
My son won’t remember that
I gotta go I gotta go then all of a sudden. He stops complaining and like oh
Time to Roll down the windows
They start I buy what toy are we gonna get for either like oh, okay? This has not been a good day for the car
But what he’s graduating college, and one day one day is getting married and one day. He has his own kids. He is not gonna remember that
But guess we’ll never forget
I’ll never forget
I’ll never forget carrying him into a bathroom cleaning him up changing his clothes
Babba put the Spider-Man pajamas on
He won’t remember. He won’t remember any of that. I will I will and that same kid. He’s talking back to me one [day]
When he’s telling me dad, I just don’t understand you okay. I don’t have time [right] now
He does it’s Gonna Hurt man
That’s Gonna hurt
That’s what you do to your parents. That’s what I do to my parents
They were our life
They were they give up their life for us our parents give up careers for us our parents gave up vacations for us our parents
Gave up friends for us. You know that?
I know that now. I didn’t know that then
They had an entire life planned until you came along, and then you became their plan you became everything and
have the nerve
One thing doesn’t go your way you hear one thing you don’t want to hear you snap back
It says we’re not even talking about Islam, right?
We’re just talking about decency man. Just decency what what have they done for you and what you give them back is so unfair
It is so unfair
My dad’s so annoying my mom so this there so they are always mad. They’re never happy. They are this, they are that. What are you? What about you?
[I’m] telling [you]. I can’t say this enough times if you don’t earn your parents doas nothing. Nothing good will come of your life
Nothing. Good will come of your life. If they’re not happy
if you haven’t done everything you can to [make] them happy
And never give that you haven’t in all honesty sometimes parents can be unfair it’s they’re human beings they can be unfair too
But if you have never you unless you have given them reason to be upset
If you’ve never given them a reason to be upset then that’s between them and allah
But if you have given them a reason you have to ask yourself
It’s bad. It’s really really bad
