Looking after our family's welfare


  • Our parents are amongst those whom we need to give our attention to. This is especially when they are in their golden years. This is the time for us to increase our compassion and love towards them by taking care of their wellbeing. As children, we need to support them in all aspects, especially their needs and welfare.
  • Being mindful of their emotions and feelings becomes even more important especially for those who are caring for their ailing parents.
  • The duty of serving and treating parents well is the duty of all of the children. It needs to be mutually shared amongst the siblings. This effort needs to be undertaken willingly and is considered as a form of worship just like how we perform other types of worship. In fact, bountiful rewards will be given for this effort.
