Every human being having reached old age needs more service and care. The society must not ignore the rights of senior members of the community. Allah Most High said:
“And lower to them shoulders with humility and meekness and say my Lord have mercy upon them (both) as they brought me up when I was little.”
When we were weak and in need our parents did hard labour in nourishing and rearing us. They have performed numerous sacrifices for our comfort and welfare. They were the main source of our safety from a number of difficulties. As Allah Most High has mentioned we must sincerely ponder over the many hardships, which were taken by our parents for our comfort.
