Story no. 22: Respect of old people

Qasim and Abdullah, on seeing their grandfather, went to ask him about his health (etc). Their grandfather said “You are really good children, who come to ask about my health . When you will be old, god willing you will reach high status”. Abdullah said “grandpa, one night we went with our father to the mosque .There we saw a preacher sitting on the pulpit. I listened to him. One of his statements was “An old person in his household, is, like a prophet, a respectful man of his time”.
So the lesson is that the way that the prophets were respected in their times, old people should be respected too.
