Simple Bundgobi Mix Subzi (cabbage stir fry)

Assalamo alaikum,

There are days in life when you want to keep things simple and easy we are living in a time when everybody is very busy to some extent that it becomes a problem that you are too busy to give time to your family specially your parents when you are married and have kids ,but as Allah says in quran:

"... And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them 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 did bring me up when I was small." (17:23, 24)

So we have to be very careful to make sure we are taking proper care of your parents in sha Allah!!!
