Q: How should we respect our Asaathiza ikraam who have taught us Quraan etc. when we were small? How should we respect Ulama ikraam who lecture to us and impart deen to us?
A: Make du`aa for them, visit them and show kindness and respect towards them.
They should also be respected in the same manner.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
