MOTHER’S DAY

God says in regards to our parents in the Qur’an: “Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, And that you be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in your life, Say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, But address them in terms of honor. And out of kindness, Lower to them the wing of humility, and say: ‘My Lord! bestow on them Your Mercy as they Cherished me in childhood’ “ (Quran 17:23-24).

Showing devotion to our mothers should not be forgotten, or considered less significant, but it may be better to offer a helping hand, time, and open displays of affection every day.

We want our mothers to have all the material things in life that they desire. But a soul will never be satisfied by goods found in the market place. Great and lasting gifts are the ones that stay in our hearts deeper and for a longer time. Who hasn’t avoided dealing with difficult and complicated family conversations, choosing instead to show that they care with a gift? Gifts are also frequently a substitute for saying the words “I love you.”

Moms, they nurture us, spend years cleaning up after us and always worry about our welfare long after we are no longer kids. They are our drivers to school, therapy, after-school programs, friends visits, and so much more.

Moms, they are our teachers, therapists , best friends, psychologists, and the one person who can make that pain go away with a simple band-aid and a kiss.

Moms, they are the one we can lean on when we need help, and the ones we go to so we can cry on their shoulders when sadness overtake us.

Moms, they are the one we can confide in with our deepest secrets, or troubles, and we know they will be there for us and help us through the ocean of troubles in life.

Moms, they never get tired, and never stop smiling at us.

Moms, they will always listen to us and forgive  our shortcomings.

Moms, the ones we must treasure and celebrate every day.

This is why the Prophet (saas) said when he was asked by a man, “whom should I honor most?” The Prophet replied, “your Mother”. “Who next?” he was asked. He again replied, “your Mother”. “Who next?” he was again asked. He replied once more, “your Mother!”. “Who next?” he was asked once more. Then he said, “your Father.” (Bukhari and Muslim)
