Asalaamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatu,

These things really make my parents happy :D:D:D

~ wake my siblings up for school

~ make breakfast while my mother is sleeping

~ do the dishes without being asked *cough*

~ make tea

~ clean my annoying brother's room

My mother is really easy to please Alhamdulillah and her duaas are sooo sweet (sometimes embarrassing)

:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Selam aleykum wa rahmetallahu wa barakathu,


- Pray the daily namaaz, makes both of my parents very happy

- Get good grades, both parents get veeery satisfied (and happy)

- Cleaning in general makes my mother very, very happy. (Our home is almost always shining clean elhamdulillah)

- Make chai/tea for them. :D lol and serve it the old traditional way

- Be in the livingroom with them to watch TV for example, instead of being alone on our room...

---

There's more, but I'm too tired to remember. lol My parents are quite easily pleased, it's those little things that matter most in the end kinda. :D

just listen to them. not neccesarily in what they tell you to do, but even with thier stories that you have no interest in, and that aren't really relevant to you. just sit there and give them your full attention.

immmm......
I think try to do what they want before they ask (you will surprised them this way)

waking up my brother to alfager prayer insted of litting my mom to do that (because it is very difficult to wake him up)

if I see them sad, dont be sad like them but try to be happy and laugh to make them feel better

show them that they are the best in my life not ignoring them

Plus if I make my mother happy enough she makes me "biryani". :D:D:D

LOL My mother would react the same way. :p

Brother, you know your mother and father better than us, lol, shouldn't you know? Everybody is different, so I can't give much advice, other than hugging once every blue moon makes many parents go: (heart) + (hug) = ^o), which is kinda cute. :D

Most things Alhamdulilah. Such as;

.Getting good test results (one of the biggest motivators for my parents :P)
.Telling them jokes.
.Being good, polite, praying, reading Qu'ran etc., that makes them proud :).


And I can't think of anymore, Insha'Allah I will, soon :D.

brother, even if on the outside she dosn't seem to appreciate it, trust me, i think on the inside she does. she only says those things, because she knows you can tolerate it. have you noticed how parents dont snap at their children who back chat, speak back, treat them badly, etc.

lol you'd think that wouldnt you

all the blunders are overlooked anyway, it is rare to find a parent whos heart doesnt forgive even if the outward actions appear otherwise :)


Alhamdulillah

From my experience i know that to listen and obey my parents makes them very happy. Not to complain/squeal, help with the housework too.

i also found that when i child lies to them it makes a parent very unhappy.

It's all about lowering the wing of mercy to them.

I just listen when I did something wrong, so when they're speaking I just lower my head and I get really quiet..and before u know it they are hugging me feeling sorry for me. lol...So I mastered this art hehe.

At the end of the day, Our Parents like us (siblings) all to get along and show each other LOVE n 2 not desert one another..they say if we do that they will die happy and that they will make dua for us.

:salamext:,

I could write loads and loads on this but I guess its just important to remember and identify that anything good you do will make them happy ..afterall when they witness that their efforts to provide us with the best of teachings have not gone to waste as they see it in our characters, the way we interact with others and how we deal with situations in life...
only then will they truly feel rewarded

Our parents love us very much Subhan'Allah even a smile can change the daily troubles that they go through and just remind them of how all thier struggles to bring us up were/are worth every moment. Sometimes we don't like the attitudes that they have to certain things in life, but when that happens we just simply forget that they're only seeing our best interest at heart..if they fail to understand us, its because we've not understood them.

Subhan'Allah where would we be without our parents..Its harder for girls I think..knowing that you'll have to leave them one day..but then again, you know that while you prevail your care and love for someone elses parents, they'll be very proud of you and truly feel the fruits of the blessing that you are to them, as you become a blessing for others..

I'm very dependent on my parents for everything, mostly emotional support :-[ when I cry about everything and anything :exhausted they're always there to give me courage and pick me up! to tell me that its ok, and wipe away my tears to face another day...

to the world I will probably seem like the strongest of poeple but when it comes to my parents I'm weak, I seriously need them just like we all do and Alhamdulillah for Allah blessing me with the two most wonderful parents in this world!
Rabbir Ham Huma Kama Rabba yani Sagheera......"O Allah! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small." (17:24) ...Aameen..

lol this is very hard....i mean very.

emm...

1. if i do the dishes without being asked to...actually its because i cant stand it at times - i dont get dua for it tho, i just get a "wow your doing the dishes? who told u? " lol who said anyone told me?!

2. clean up my brothers room (which has 3month old coke spilled and spoons stuck to the carpet!!) - actually my brother comes home and yells at me because then he "cant" find his clothes when the room is clean. strange.

3. Mow the lawn - my dad pays me, but the money ends up wit my brothers anyway.

4. not die????

er i dunno everything i just named prety much makes ME happy.........including the cleaning up my brothers room coz he got this stereo system which OWNSSS. and his room smells like axe :) .

with my mum, its housework, cooking, cleaning etc... and just being tidy really.This is harder than it sounds lol.

Its harder to please my dad,if he likes something he wont say , so far, the only thing that pleases him is doing well in your education and praying, neither for which he expresses any implicit indication of being pleased.Thats the only 2 things, apart from that nothing really.
