42. Chapter: The excellence of dutifulness shown to the friends of one's father 
and mother, relatives, wife, and others whom one should honour
343. Abu Usayd Malik ibn Rabi'a as-Sa'idi said, "Once while we were sitting 
with the Messenger of Allah, (PBUH), a man from the Banu Salama came up and 
asked, 'O Messenger of Allah, is there any devotion to my parents which I can 
show them after their death?' He said, 'Yes, praying for them, asking 
forgiveness for them, fulfilling their pledges after them, maintaining ties 
with relations which are only maintained through them, and honouring any friend 
of theirs." [Abu Dawud]
