Sura Al-Isra Ayah 23: Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that you be kind to your Parents.  Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor.

Parents in Ahadith of the Prophet and his holy Ahlulbayt:

The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said: "The pleasure of Allah lies in the pleasure of one's parents and His wrath lies in their wrath."       

Mustadrak-ul-Wasa'il-ush-Shi'ah, vol. 15, p. 176

Bihar-ul-Anwar, vol. 74, p. 85

Imam Sadiq (AS) said: "He who wishes Allah, Almighty and Glorious, to lighten the agonies of death, he should have regard for his kinship, and treat his parents with goodness. Then, when a person does so, Allah will make the agonies of death easy for him and he will not be stricken by poverty in his life at all."

Safinat-ul-Bihar, vol. 2, p. 553

Imam Sadiq (AS) said: "He who glares at his parents with wrathful eyes, although they have been unjust to him, Allah will not accept his prayers (unless he repents)."

Imam Sadiq (AS) said: "Once a person came to the Prophet (PBUH) and asked him about good treatment to parents. Then, he said 'Treat kindly your mother, treat kindly your mother, and treat kindly your mother; be kind to your father, be kind to your father, and be kind to your father but begin (that kindness) with your mother before your father'."

Al-Kafi, vol. 2, p. 162
