You say that your parents are worse compared to other parents but let me tell you a fact that what you see with your eyes is not neccessarily the case. You do not know what these families are truly going through. No one is ever going to divulge the full truth to you about what is going on in their families. There are countless families who are in a much worser situation than you could ever dream of so do not let shaythan fool you into thinking that what you arre going through is the worst situation because you are very clearly being decieved.
Shaythan is trying to create anger, enmity and hatred in your heart for your parents because he knows that as your anger and hatred for them grows so does the fact that you are going towards total destruction. Why let shaythan do this to you? Don't think of the flaws of your parents. Are you perfect? Just because they come from a different background and have different thinking to you it does not mean that you know any better than them for you are decieving yourself by thinking in this way.
They want the best for you no matter what you claim. If they make mistakes or do things that you don't disagree with then you must NEVER have anger, enmity or hatred towards them because you should look at your own flaws and also realise that because they come from a different upbringing, background and totally different era that they will have diffeent thinking and perception to you. This is not a bad thing at all. You must get that anger, enmity and hatred out of your heart immediatley lest you gain the wrath and anger of Allah.
Look at others out there who have nothing and don't compare yourself to people who you think are happy and have good family lives because what you see is not always what is actually what is going on behind closed doors. Be thankful to Allah and the day when your parents go you will regret the times you did not treat them well and you will regret the amount of good deeds you lost out on from not being at their service. We only have our parents once, so instead of concentrating on their flaws, look at your own and concentrate on their good points.
If they do something you disagree with then think that it is just because they are your parents and that they want the best for you even if you don't agree with them but their intentions are good and they MUST be treated with the utmost respect and honour, even IF they oppress you.
One should be very cautious about causing someone to break ties with their family, since Allah punishes for this sin in this life and the next. The Prophet Muhammad has said:
"There is no sin more deserving of having punishment meted out by Allah to its perpetrator in advance in this world along with what He stores up for him in the next world than oppression and severing ties of family." (At-Tirmidhi)
The Prophet is reported to have said:
"Indeed, gentleness adds more beauty to the atmosphere it reposes therein." (Muslim)
Hazrat ibn Abbas narrates from the Prophet that a person whose parents are alive and he obeys them, listens to and respects them, then Allah will open two doors of paradise for him. But if one of his parents is not happy with him, then Allah will not be happy with him either. Then someone asked the Prophet , “Even if they are oppressors?” The Prophet replied,
“Yes, even if they are oppressors.”
It is said, a person who disobeys his parents, or disrespects them and does not listen to them, Allah will open two doors of hell for him. And if he disrespects only one of them, then Allah will only open one door of hell for him.
Above all, this requires patience and self-restraint. Learn about the tremendousness of being good to one's parents, and keep this in mind.
When troubled, tried, or tested, turn to Allah in earnest, heart-felt supplication (dua), for He has told us to,
"Call upon Me: I will answer you."
The fire of anger is put out by the water of love:
respond to her harshness with love, and soon you will find things changing.
Allah told the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) in the Qur'an,
It was by the mercy of Allah that You were lenient with them, for if You had been stern and fierce of heart they would have dispersed from round about thee. So pardon them and ask forgiveness for them and consult with them upon the conduct of affairs. And when You art resolved, then put your trust in Allah. Lo! Allah loves those who put their trust (in Him).
If Allah is your helper none can overcome you, and if He withdraw His help from you, who is there who can help you after Him? In Allah let believers put their trust.
Allah, the exalted, ordered us to treat them kindly even when they try to make us associate partners to Allah.
When being kind to one’s parents, we do not expect a reward from them, but we expect a reward from Allah.
If the parents are not kind and do not appreciate the kindness of their children, then one has to be patient, bearing the difficulties and be steadfast in doing good to them, and the outcome will be good, Insha Allah.
And Allah alone gives success.
