If you have tried calling the mainstream services, you will get the best professional support but without the cultural awareness and understanding that you need in order to fully deal with your crisis. Of course there will be times when there is no alternative but to use the mainstream resources which are currently available, like Lifeline or Beyond Blue. However, Islamicare aims to support Australian Muslim families by both providing professional counselling support bound together with the cultural and religious awareness needed to effectively support your call. All our counsellors are Muslim as well as qualified counsellors who have the best training and skills.
Kindness to parents is mentioned as a duty of believers several times in the Quran. There are many Hadiths that encourage us to be very kind to our parents.
Obedience must be discriminating. We obey our parents only in what is right and what is calculated to please Allah. But we should be kind to them in all situations. Almighty Allah has emphasized that kindness to parents.Know More
