It is Fardh (obligatory) for a person to serve his parents when they grow old and become dependent on him. Failure to do this will attract the curse of Rasulullaah (SAW), as reported in a Hadith in which Rasulullaah (SAW) once said, “May he be destroyed!” After Rasulullaah (SAW) had repeated it thrice, the Sahabah (RA) asked who it was that Rasulullaah (SAW) was referring to. Rasulullaah (SAW) replied, “The person who finds one of his parents in old age and fails to serve them.”

[Muslim 4628, from Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (RA)]
