{Chapter 3: On Dutifulness to One’s Father}

 5. Abu Hurayra said,

“Someone asked, ‘Messenger of Allah, towards whom should I be dutiful?’

He said, ‘Your mother.’

He was asked, ‘Then towards whom?’

He said, ‘Your mother.’

He was asked, ‘Then towards whom?’

He said, ‘Your mother.’

He was asked, ‘Then towards whom?’

He replied, ‘Your father.'”

 

6. “A man came to the Prophet of Allah (may the peace and salutations be upon him) and asked, ‘What do you command me (to do)?’

He replied, ‘Be dutiful towards your mother.’

Then he asked him the same question again and he replied, ‘Be dutiful towards your mother.’

He repeated it yet again and the Prophet replied, ‘Be dutiful towards your mother.’

He repeated the question a fourth time and the reply was, ‘Be dutiful towards your mother.’

Then he put the question a fifth time and the Prophet said, ‘Be dutiful towards your father.'”
