Mother in Islam
Islam has given huge importance to a mother as none other has given, in islam mothers are called as bird paradise which talks and invites her children to the paradise, you should love both of your parents though, but mother has 3 times more importance than your father,
Let us understand importance of mother with the help of few authentic hadiths
Hadiths are the commandments of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) to his ummah.
Once a man came to the Prophet and asked, O Messenger of Allah, who is entitled for the best of my companionship? Prophet (Phub) replied: Your Mother, man again asked then who? Prophet again replied: Your Mother, man asked again who next? even third time prophet replied: Your Mother, that man asked fourth time, then who? The Prophet replied: Your Father (Sahih Bukhari)
If we analyse Gold, Silver and Bronze medals go to mother and father will have to be satisfied with consolation prize (Fun Statement)
According to other narrations
Once a man asked Prophet Muhammad about taking part in military campaign upon this Prophet Mohammad (Pbuh) asked him if his mother still alive, man replied in positive Prophet said, “stay with her as paradise is at her feet (Al-Tirmidhi)
The Prophet also said in several events/occasions that “Allah has forbidden for you to be undutiful to your mothers.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)
So be dutiful to your parents love them take care of them even rewards are huge if you love your parents.
There are several hadiths in which Prophet has also declared the importance of the relatives and relations, he also told that the person who cuts off the relation with his relatives will not enter in paradise.
Mother’s Day and Islam
Although Islam has not specified any date for celebrating mothers day but Allah Ta’ala has made few things very clear in the holy book “Quran” about mother.
So if you observe all those commandments of Allah Subhana hu Wa Ta’ala each day will become mother day for you.
Each day you can celebrate as Thanksgiving Day because every day you are ordered to be grateful to your parents always.
The best mothers day message we can find in Holy Quran that “Allah has forbidden us to be un-dutiful to your mothers”.
This clearly means that you should treat your mother with affection and love never to raise your voice in front of your parents.
If your parents are old do not leave them alone because Allah says in Quran “the time you spend with your parents will lead you to Jannah”
If you just even look with love at you old parents, you are rewarded as you just performed a Hajj.
At last we know that the sacrifice and love a mother gives to her child can never be justified in a single day though, your courtesy to your mother should be shown in every aspect of your life.
But mothers day is a good way to make her feel special with many mothers day activities such cook good food for your mother, or take her out for food you can also fulfill her wish if she has anything related to you.
These kind of mothers day activities make her feel special.
Have a wonderful mothers day “May God grant long life, all comforts of this world and here after to all mothers.
