Hadith on Parents: Obligation to meet needs of your parents

Abdullah ibn Amr reported: A man came to the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O Messenger of Allah, I have some property and my father invades my property.” The Prophet said, “You and your property belong to your father. Verily, your children are the most wholesome of your earnings, so eat from what your children earn.

Al-Azimabadi said, “The meaning is that if the father needs your property, he may take it from you by the measure of his need, just as he would take it from his own property.”
