Life looks tasteless without a cellphone, especially for a person how is sick of using cellphone, and we don't waste our time on any worthy work but in using the cellphone, our this habit is at its intensity these days, we don't care who is with us, either he is one of our parents or from a relative or a friend.

Our parent's parents it means our grand parents were the people who didn't like to repeat their words when they once told anything to their children. Paying attention to the words of elders is considered as a sign of respect. It is necessary for the children to listen carefully every single word coming out from their parent's mouth.
Taking opinion on a specific topic or thing is considered as superior thing in shariah and then matching those opinions helps in deciding about a problem in a better way, but the you youngsters should always prior the opinion of their parents above their own opinion, because they have more life experiences than the young generation.
Does this sounds good that your parents are talking on different casual or formal things in a family gathering and you are not joining their conversations and you are playing attention to your cellphone? No, it doesn't you must join their conversation and life is too short, it is better to spend time with your love ones.
It is more important to look at them with love and respect, never see with sharp eyes on your parents, they spent a long life full of difficulties, just to make you feel at ease they faced difficulties in their life. Never look at them with the expressions other than respect and love.
As you can see that, title of this blog is about giving honor to your parents. So always try your best to give respect and honor your parents other than any other person.
Don't share bad news with your parents, find someone else to do so if anything unhappy happens, but when it is a good news, you should try to stare this with your parents. This will make them happy but not sad, and you should not miss any chance of making them happy.
As i already mentioned above that sharing a news with your parents effects their mode and way of thinking and you should be source of happiness for them, and not a source of making them sad with a bad news, so avoid sharing bad news with your parents.
Respect all others who are friends 9f your parents, never disrespect them, they are attached with your parents and everything, everyone who is relating to your parents deserves a behavior that you have with your parents. Love the belongings of your parents too, if you love your parents.
Remember all good things, try to remember those things that they have done in their life. Good things about your parents will keep digging a way of respect in your heart, respect for your parents keeps on improving everyday when you will remember their good deeds in their life, never allow negative thoughts in your mind to come against your parents.
Getting forget things becomes usual at old age, our parents don't remember often the things they shared with us and they share these things again and again, it may include their story of life or a part of story from their life or any other life incident.
Keep listening their talking with keen interest, it shouldn't be looked like you are listening it again but first time. This will add in to their honor.
Every person has good and bad memories in his life, we we remember the memories it effects us emotionally, if these are good memories, will make us happy and if it relates to hard times in our life or bad memories with bad events, it will make us sad and unhappy, same thing happens with parents. Your first responsibility is making your parents happy, not sad, so bring up happy memories of the past in before your parents. And keep them away from bitter memories.
Keep focusing on the topic they are talking on. Don't make the conversation a mess by sharing irrelevant thoughts with them, don't put unnecessary words before them. Avoid any other conversations in their presence.
Their are several ways and methods of sitting, these are formal, informal, polite, aggressive, decent. Always chose a method of politeness before them in any way. Sit before them politely, Quran says stand in front of your parents while having your shoulders down and with down head. Be really very formal in front of your parents, it is an honor for them and respect for you as well.
Always say yes to your parents no matter what they say, being agree to their statement will keep their pride safe. Don't try to correct them in front of other people, but when your are alone with them, tell them the difference between right and wrong. It is then up to them to accept or reject your ideas.
No matter they are more experienced than us, but error is in human nature. I am sure they will accept and correct themselves.
No one likes to be interrupted during talking, but when it comes to parents, they deserve not to be interrupted at any cost, wait for completion of their addresses, and then ask for allowance from them to talk. And then talk. It is fruitful according to the demand of morals.
Respecting your parents is another most important point to be discussed. It is taught to the youngsters that always respect your elders. And parents are of more importance than anyone else among all other elders.

When grand children are hit by their parents in front of grand parents, children always try to make a refuge in grand parents lap. And it is unethical to beat or scold your children in front of your parents, if you will do this, it will have a negative effect on the honor of your parents. Be patient that time and try to make your children understand with love and patience.
I'm mentioning again and again that your parents are more experienced and competent than you, they have seen the hard times in their lives that you haven't. It is better to accept their advice, their command and every word they say, never say a 'NO' to them.
Always make sure their command will be accepted whole heartedly.
The luckiest people in this universe are, whose parents are alive on earth. They have a chance to earn Jannah be serving their parents.

And this is the reason while hiring a person for a job, the experienced person is preferred more than an inexperienced.

My grandfather said that the children of every Halal animal walks behind their parents, but donkey (haram aniaml) donkey's kids run ahead of their parents.

When you are ordered from the almighty to follow your parents then what is the need to show off in front of them. Always consider your parents superior to you. And never think yourself superior to your parents. Always make things easy and respectful for your parents. Showing off is nothing but dishonoring your parents. Avoid showing yourself off in front of these sacred personalities.
This life where it is beautiful, but it is also cruel to some others, everyone is having a different life on this earth some having easy and luxury life and other are having difficult and inferior.

Our parents and their children have different age and era differences. Errors and omissions are expected at their old age. Ignore their mistakes, never smile or laugh at your parents mistakes, this may hurt them. Never ever do anything that may hurt your parents.
Your first priority should be always try to live with your parents, if it is not possible to live with them permanently, try to keep visiting them regularly.
