Assalaamualaikum Wa Rahmtullahi Wa Barakatuh,
Mothers. The most, single most important (AND dads, but for now let's focus on mums) person in your life. Yes, your entire life. They cook, clean, bring you up, and they ask for nothing in return. That's pretty amazing, right? I remember this poem in like year 2, about a mother's love. But I can't find it! It's about a son who does chores and makes a list of them all, and he gives them to his mother, and asks for money. The best part is the last part, where the mother replies with all her duties as a mother (bathing him, caring for him ...etc) and she says it's all for free. It is a great poem! If you know what I am talking about, please let me know! You know I have been thinking about how much we neglect our mothers. We go by our lives, living so smoothly- do we ever think why it's running so smooth? The food, always on the table- The clean clothes, on your bed... When we don't have something we realise how much we need it. It's like having the best food- 5* star quality, you have it.. & MMM yum does it taste good! BUT what happens when one day, we wake up & we have ...1* food...? Can you tell the difference? The texture, flavour, amount...etc. is all different. In the same way, when we have EVERYTHING done for us, when we have to do it ourselves ( and it's not as good) that's when we realise just HOW good we had it before & boy do we regret not appreciating it... Your mother, is always there for you. Since you were born to now.
I remember from my Productive Muslim emails, a calamities article. It was super informative! It spoke about how people are either in a calamity, just passed a calamity, or heading towards one. When I thought about it, it's true. Relating it to mothers, whenever we are in trouble our mothers are always there to help us, Alhamdulilah! We should appreciate the help we have, because not everyone has that. Look at the video below
I like this nasheed, mainly because it reminds me how lucky I am to have a mother. :D
SubhanAllah I found this poem you should definitely read.
One day a man tempted a foolish boy
With his money to safeguard the boy from harm.
He told him: “Boy, bring me the heart of your mother,
And you I’ll give jewels, coins, and pearls.”
So he went and sheathed a dagger with his Mother’s chest
And the Heart he took out and went back the way he came,
But because of his excess haste, he fell
And the heart, covered with blood, rolled along as he stumbled.
The mother’s heart called him while being covered with dirt.
“Son! My beloved! Are you hurt?!”
And suddenly, even though the voice was very compassionate,
It was as if the wrath of the heaven had fallen on the boy
And so, he unsheathed his dagger to stab himself,
A stabbing to become an example for those who heed examples.
But, just as the blade was about to pierce his own heart,
The heart of the mother called him saying
“Stop your hand!”
So not kill my heart twice in the same place!”
Ibrahim B. Mikhail Al-Mundhir
Because our mother’s love is priceless,
Immeasurable, and unconditional,
Let today be a day that we sincerely remember our Mother,
And remind her and show her, truly, just how much we love her.
But, most importantly, let us remember to make
Every day our Mothers Day ----
I found this on the webpage, and it is beautiful and so accurate! So I thought I would share!
This poem makes me cry. Well all of them do.. :/ ...
Lastly I thought I would finish with reminding me and us all, that what we have in this dunya is not forever, and we know that. But sometimes we forget that. We neglect our duties as a son, daughter...etc. and get led astray by the worldly things, which we should try to avoid inshaAllah. Mothers are precious. I remember a quote about the household. If there is no mother, there is no household. I think that's it. Which is true, the household relies on the mother, everything is chaotic without your mum. (Please do not be offended to you all out there who don't have mothers, anymore)
Aww, a sweet quote I thought I'd share.
Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while
I am not sure who wrote that...
Lastly, I would like to finish off by the saying of our beloved Rasool (SAW)
Abu Huraira (RA) reported that a person came to Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: Who among the people is most deserving of a fine treatment from my hand? He said: Your mother. He again said: Then who (is the next one)? He said: Again it is your mother (who deserves the best treatment from you). He said: Then who (is the next one)? He (the Holy Prophet) said: Again, it is your mother. He (again) said: Then who? Thereupon he said: Then it is your father. In the hadith transmitted on the authority of Qutalba, there is no mention of the word" the people".

& Lastly some nice pictures that are too sweet!
If you are wondering why I decided to post about Mothers today it is because my mum is extremely ill but inshaAllah she will get better! Alhamdulilah I have a mum!Keep her in your duas inshaAllah & let's all appreciate our mothers! Tell them we love them <3 and hug them! Never forget how they looked after us, and spend time with them like they spent time with us when we were young! <3
I love you mum <3
