If any one will be asked to name one special, precious, lovable, adorable personality in his/her life then undoubtedly the answer will be “Mother”. Mother is a special gift of ALLAH almighty for all of us. There can be no replacement of Mother. She is a Master piece of ALLAH almighty. From our birth to every single moment we live Mother play an important role in our life. She is a real example of tolerance, patience, courage, love and trust. Whatever we achieve in life is solely because of our parents especially Mother.
In our religion Mother has a high place. Below are the few hadiths which explains the importance of Mother:
In a well-loved hadith, the Prophet (PBUH) is reported to have said, "Paradise lies at the feet of mothers." This means that we gain admission to Heaven through our treatment of our mothers. We can also be denied admission through mistreatment of mothers. It is said that no person will ever be granted access to Paradise if his/her mother died while angry with him/her. Now, obviously, there are many other factors that determine whether or not a person will ever see heaven. This hadith simply shows the importance of being kind to our mothers.
Still another hadith reports that a man asked the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), "Who is most worthy of my love and respect?" The Prophet (PBUH) replied, "Your mother." The man asked, "And then who?" The Prophet (PBUH) again answered, "Your mother." The man asked one more time and received the same answer. When the man asked the question a fourth time, the Prophet (PBUH) answered, "Your father."
This is not to say that we should not love our fathers, or that our fathers are not important in our lives. But it is mother, though, who is generally tasked with most of the child-rearing responsibilities. It is usually our mothers, who are there to comfort us, hold us, tend to us when sick, feed us, and clean us. In early childhood, it is usually the mother who witnesses her child's firsts, who rejoices over their victories, and who commiserates over their defeats. Mothers share their children's childhoods, living each step with them.
Most hadiths go on to explain why a mother is so special. She sacrificed her youth and beauty for her children, she bore them in painful pregnancies, she withstood pain in labor, and she breastfed through hardship. It is often discussed that mothers give up their lives for their children. In return, the children owe their mothers a lifetime of love, care, respect, and affection.
Thus every one should care and respect his/her mother and should value them. Salute to all Mothers. May ALLAH keep our Mothers and Fathers with us forever.
