Mothers Day?

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you

A day in which we celebrate our amazing mothers, a day dedicated to them, so what do we do buy them flowers, some chocolate etc. but do we truly value our mothers. What status do our mothers really hold?

A man once asked the Prophet to whom he should show the most kindness. The Prophet replied: “Your mother, next your mother, next your mother, and then your father.” (Sunan of Abu-Dawood)

Should I say anymore?

That same mother who did not sleep when we were sick, same mother that went hungry for us, even when we broke every rule in the book caused such grief but still loves us.

On another occasion, the Prophet said: “God has forbidden for you to be undutiful to your mothers.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

So should mother’s day be only ONE day?

In a way all I want to mention is do we show enough love and gratitude towards our parents, our elders and mercy upon our youngsters?

The Prophet peace be upon him has showed us how to lead our life, not just how to pray and how to do business no but the complete way of life of how to conduct ourselves around others. In today’s fast and demanding world everyone all look on how to benefit themselves, Me me me. If we all start doing me me me when will we ever have the chance to show our gratitude to parents for all their love and even our lord for all that we have.

You have always been there, through thick and thin
You were there when I tore any skin
You were there to cuddle and kiss me
You are the best Mother there can be.

You cook and clean and tidy up
And you never complain
I wonder how you stay sane.

You’re entertaining and fun
I don’t know how you find the time to run
around and do the things you do
So Mother, I just want to say, “I Love You!!”

Ma’as-salaam – With Peace

  1. SubhanAllah! Allah SWT has designed our mothers in such an Amazing Amazing way! The bond between a child and a mother is un-breakable. The love is eternal. Quite unexplainable to be honest.
    We can Never repay our mothers for the pain and the troboules they go through for the nine months they hold us in their wombs, never mind everything else they do for us.
    Trust me – it’s not easy! Just ask someone whose expecting and they will tell you.

    Noway is it all repayable in One day. Everyday of our lives we should be there for our mothers (and fathers). Especially as they enter old age.

    If they say something we don’t like, we should think, they are wiser than us, there must be a genuine reason for them saying that or suggesting that to us, rather than thinking, aaahh she’s old she doesn’t know..

    We should hold our mothers in rgreat esteem. We shouldn’t take them for granted. Just ask someone whose mother has passed away and they will tell you how it feels.

    Ooops I was just going to write one sentance, sorry for waffling.
    JazakAllah for the hadith above. A truly beautiful hadith that really sums it all up and does wonders everytime it’s read.
