Azan on the occasion of accepting Islam

Nasihah (Advice): The virtue of honouring the elderly

Sayyiduna Abu Musa al-Ash’ari (Radiyallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Part of honouring Allah is to honour the elderly, the Hafiz of the Qur’an who is modest in his recitation and preserves it and a just ruler” (Abu Dawood, Hadith #: 4843)
