A Tribute to Fathers

By Zafar Siddiqui, Engage Minnesota

I dedicate this blog entry to all the fathers who are making a difference in the lives of their children.Mothers and fathers are the pillars of any healthy society. Islam acknowledges their great contributions to human civilization. Respect, love, compassion, and obedience to parents is not an option but an obligation in Islam.

“Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor.’ (Qur’an 17:23)
