Mother’s Day 2011

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new.  ~Rajneesh

 

Being a mom is a full-time job. The word “MOTHER” is a most beautiful word for me. When  I hear this word,  my heart fills with joy, and I remember happy times , hugs , stories and cuddled along with encouragements with my mom, and now with my children.

Mother stands for tons of things in our lives. Mothers are our confidants, our teachers, helpers, playmates, drivers, nurses sometimes doctors. Mothers are the therapist for special need children. Mothers  love is like a bottomless lake, that never runs dry.

Mothers do sacrifices every day to keep their children healthy, happy, and well-balanced, but they never complain about it and continue to do it till the end of time.  Mothers do feel grief, and sorrow, mainly when they see their children being hurt, and they feel powerless to help.

In Islam,  mothers are considered to be a very important part of the family. A well-known Hadith of the prophet says: “I asked the Prophet who has the greatest right over a man, and he said, ‘His mother'”. While a woman is considered the most important member of the family, she is not the head of the family. Therefore, it is possible to conclude that importance has no relevance with being the head of the family.

Another example to show how much importance the mother has in a Muslim family is…

“A man asked the Prophet: ‘Whom should I honor most?’ The Prophet replied: ‘Your mother’. ‘And who comes next?’ asked the man. The Prophet replied: ‘Your mother’. ‘And who comes next?’ asked the man. The Prophet replied: ‘Your mother!’. ‘And who comes next?’ asked the man. The Prophet replied: ‘Your father'”

Mother’s day should be every day, to honor the one who helped, us formed us to be what we are and what we can be.

A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.  ~Washington Irving
