[Imam Bukhari (Rahimahullah)]

{Chapter 9: Being Dutiful to Parents as long as that does not entail disobedience}

18. Abu’d-Darda’ said, “The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, recommended nine things to me:

‘Do not associate anything with Allah, even if you are cut to pieces or burned.
Do not abandon a prescribed prayer deliberately. Anyone who abandons it will forfeit Allah’s protection.
Do not drink wine – it is the key to every evil.
Obey your parents. If they command you to abandon your worldly possessions, then leave them for them.
Do not contend with those in power, even if you think that you are in the right.
Do not run away from the army when it is advances, even if you are killed while your companions run away.
Spend on your wife out of your means. Do not raise a stick against your wife.
Cause your family to fear Allah, the Almighty and Exalted.’

19. ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr said,

“A man came to the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and said, ‘I have come to make you a pledge that will do hijra although I have left my parents in tears.”
The Prophet said, ‘Go back to them and make them laugh as you made them cry.’
