Hatred for one’s mother

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: Will I be cursed or saved from some difficulties in life if I can’t forgive my mother? She already passed away several years ago but still I can’t forget those times when she was alive that she never made me feel that she loved me, what I felt and feel right now is still HATRED from her, I’m even kind of happy when she passed away because she never made me happy, she always scolded me and more, I have 5 siblings and what she treat others is not the same on how she treated me. It’s unfair for me and that’s one of the reasons why I felt hatred for her. What I always heard about Islamic lectures is forgive your parents, love your parents especially your mother.


A: Make du`aa for her and don’t entertain these types of wrong stray thoughts of your mother.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
