Abstract:   (336 Views)
Old age is the third period in human life; the period before death. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the elderly are defined as those aged 65 years and older. In sociology the old age is when the social role of a person and his participation in community affairs declines. Biologically, old age begins when human catabolic rate surpasses his anabolic rate. Psychologists believe that the old age is when the ability of a person to deal with life challenges and coping with stressful situations decreases. In Islamic jurisprudence old age is equal to disability and failure to perform such religious duties as fasting. In Islam there has been a lot of attention to the reverence of old people. According to the holy Quran: “And the Lord has decreed that you worship none but him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them; but address them in terms of honor. And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: My Lord bestow on them your mercy as they bring me up when I was small. (Sura Isra, Verse 23).”
