for their (good) deeds.

15. We have enjoined on man kindness to his parents: In pain did his mother bear him,

and in pain did she give him birth. The carrying of the (child) to his weaning is (a period

of) thirty months. At length, when he reaches the age of full strength and attains forty

years, he says, "O my Lord! Grant me that I may be grateful for Thy favour which Thou

has bestowed upon me, and upon both my parents, and that I may work righteousness

such as Thou mayest approve; and be gracious to me in my issue. Truly have I turned to

Thee and truly do I bow (to Thee) in Islam."
