What is the status of senior citizens in Islam?

SHAFAQNA – The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) said: When a person gets old and his/her hair turns white, Allah (SWT) will look at his/her face twice daily, but God does not look like you and me, the look of God is the look of mercy. If God looks this way, what will happen? That person will attain the complete Divine Dignity [1]. Allah (SWT) looks twice daily and says: O’ My servant, your age has increased, and your bones have become narrow and fragile, and your skin has become thin, and the time of your death is near, it is the time of meeting God; therefore, fear God; because God is concerned about you [2]. If you are pious, you will hear this voice: Fear God and hear (the voice of the truth) [3]; if we do not hear the warning voice is due to sins. God said: We will destroy them for their sins, and will seal their hearts, so they cannot hear the voice of the truth [4].
