SubhnanAllah, all among us should stand humbled by our mothers. For it
was not too long ago, it was us who rode in our strollers as they
pushed us. It was our feet that did not touch the floor as they
carried us in their arms. It was our tears that were wiped from our
cheeks as they comforted us.
Where would we be without our mothers?
Why is it that they would without a second thought give their lives for ours?
Why is it that they would carry us in their arms or push you in their
pram even if their limbs hurt but they will never think of blaming us
for the pain.
Where does one’s pain start and the concern of their mother end?
Why is it they will go without so that we can have clothes on our back?
Why is it that the bond is so dear that only a mother can understand?
Why is it they would look from the window and not sleep until they
knew we were safe?
Why is it they would never eat until they knew we were done?
Why is it that we take the jewel in our lives for granted?
Why is it they remember so much about us but we remember them so little?
We caused you much pain oh mothers. Many times we hang our heads in
shame as we remember our wrongs.
We remember that when our fathers punished us it was your hands that
It was your hands that brought us food and tended to us when we were
sick or hurt.
Dear sons and daughters remember your mother. She loved you more than
you loved yourself. She taught you when you knew nothing. She carried
you when you could not walk and spoke to you when you could not talk.
Kill us, imprison us do as you wish but these hearts remember seeing
tears fall from the beautiful eyes of our mothers. We will move
mountains if it means they will stop.
You told us oh mother of mine that you have 5 fingers and that no
matter which finger gets cut off it will hurt the same, we say to you
that we only had one heart and we did not know that the moment you
held us that it would belong to you forever. People may come and go
but you were always there. We are the fruits of your duahs and yours
is the dua that Allah (swt) will never refuse.
May Allah( swt) admit our mothers into Jannah for fufilling their
duties upon the sons and daughters of this Ummah. Ameen.
May Allah (swt) show them more mercy then they showed us when we were
