Kindness to parents

Q: I want to know, I was an Athiest for a long period of my life. I have parent issues. I am a mujrim according to Islamic term. I do not have a good understanding with my parents. They have abundent me for some accusational issue. Beside I have some mind health problems. I heard if a child doesn't have a good relationship with his parents then Allah will not accept his duas. What if the the parent is wrong here and the child doesn't have any fault, will Allah understand my circumstances and dilemmas and accept my prayer? Will Allah help me out? 

A: Allah Ta'ala will definitely help you and accept your duas. You should turn towards him in repentance for your past and lead a pure life. Similarly, you should maintain family ties with your parents and family. If you have caused pain or inconvenience, then you should seek their forgiveness and make an effort to improve the relationship. May Allah Ta'ala make everything easy for you and grant you kaamil shifaa.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
