  • Muslim society and the care of the elderly



    http://63.175.194.25/index.php?ln=en...QR=33680&dgn=3

    Question:

    How are the elderly treated in Islam? Do they have a special status? Do they receive care that suits their health needs?.

    Answer:

    Praise be to Allaah.

    Islam is the religion of compassion and justice, a religion that teaches perfect morals and forbids bad conduct, a religion that grants man his dignity, if he adheres to the laws of Allaah.

    [color=dark red]There can be no doubt that Islam has given the elderly a special status, as there are texts which urge Muslims to respect and honour them. [/color]

    Care of the elderly in Islam is based on a number of focal points, including the following:



    Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):



    So the elderly, as sons of Adam, are included in this high status, based on the general meaning of this verse.



    Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):



    And Allaah says, describing the believers (interpretation of the meaning):



    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) described the believers as being like a single body. He (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:Narrated by Muslim, 2586.

    And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 13.

    And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (1924); classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 1569.

    And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:Narrated by Ahmad, 32370); narrated by al-Albaani in al-Saheehah, 1137.

    And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:Al-Albaani said in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah (456): its isnaad is hasan.

    Narrated by Muslim, 2699.



    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Narrated by Muslim, 2682.

    And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: al-Albaani said in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah (2498): it is hasan li ghayrihi.

    And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:Narrated by Ahmad, 1404. al-Albaani said in al-Silsilah al-Saheehah (654): its isnaad is hasan.

    Al-Tirmidhi narrated (2329) that a Bedouin said:Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 1899.



    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Narrated by Abu Dawood, 4843; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood, 4053.

    An old man came wanting to see the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and the people did not make way for him. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1919; classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi, 1565.



    Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 527.



    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: This is one of the forms of elder care in Islam. When the members of the Muslim society visit the friends of their fathers they help to include the elderly in society and put an end to the isolation they feel, which in turn reduces impact of the social and psychological changes that the elderly go through. www.islam-qa.com)
