5. Parents and obedience
Wondering how parents should be treated? Here is what the Quran has to say:
Quran 17:23-24: You shall be kind to your parents. If one or both of them live to their old age in your lifetime, you shall not say to them any word of contempt nor repel them, and you shall address them in kind words. You shall lower to them the wing of humility and pray: “O Lord! Bestow on them Your blessings just as they cherished me when I was a little child.”
The Bible summarizes it in two lines, saying:
Exodus 20:12: Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
6. In praise of God
The Bible in Revelation has this to say about praise of God:
Revelation 4: 11: “You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things; by Your will they exist, and came to be.”
The Quran has this to say about the praise of Allah:
Quran 2:255: “Allah! None has the right to be worshiped but He, The Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth.…”
7. Guardian angels
Speaking on the matter of guardian angels, the Quran had this to say:
Quran 6:61: “…and He sends guardians (angels guarding and writing all of one’s good and bad deeds) over you, until when death approaches one of you, Our Messengers (angel of death and his assistants) take his soul, and they never neglect their duty.”
The Bible book of Exodus had this to say about angels:
Exodus 23:20: “I am sending an angel ahead of you to guard you along the way and to bring you to the place I have prepared.”
