The relationship between parents and their daughters and sons should be based on love, kindness, care, respect and sympathy. It is the duty of the children to show their utmost love and respect to their parents. The parents also should be very caring and kind towards their children. They have to base their responsibilities for raising their children on the ethics and m
orals of Islam.
Dr. Muzammil H. Siddiqi, President of the Fiqh Council of North America states: Sons and daughters should respect their parents, honour them, love them, and serve them. It is the duty of the children, whether male or female, to show their utmost love and respect to their parents. The parents also should be very caring and kind towards their children.
The daughters especially should be given good education. Parents should teach them good morals and manners, modesty and chastity. When they grow up, parents should help them to get married soon. Parents should find good husbands for them but always consult their daughters; they should never force their daughters to marry someone whom they do not like or approve.
the daughters should be given their proper share of the inheritance of their parents according to the Shari`ah. Parents should not discriminate between their sons and daughters, and they should treat all equally with love and kindness. If the daughters do any mistakes they should not be punished more than the sons or the sons more than the daughters. After marriage, parents should not interfere too much in the family life of their daughters. They should keep their contact with them, but give their daughters more chance to live with their husbands and their families. I hope this is sufficient to answer your question.
