Our Mother the one who carried us for 9 months
How many times have we been here? Our mother calls us and we are so engrossed in some useless activity to realise her needs. What a waste of a good opportunity to earn the pleasure of Allah! To truly achieve emaan we must really work hard. This means to strive and struggle against our nafs (self), Our nafs is lazy, our nafs is impatient and our nafs is easily annoyed. We really have to tame our nafs otherwise it could lead us down a very dark road.
Abu Huraira reported that a person said: Allah's Messenger, who amongst the people is most deserving of my good treatment? He said: Your mother, again your mother, again your mother, then your father, then your nearest relatives according to the order (of nearness).
THREE TIMES YOUR MOTHERS NAME CAME FROM HIS (SAW) BLESSED LIPS!
This is not talking about other people this is talking about you and talking about me. From this Hadith we can see the sheer weight placed on the kind treatment and obedience of ones parents. Subhanallah. Our mothers are priceless gifts to earn the bounty and mercy of Allah from. So lets make the effort to be nice to our mothers and fathers. Spend time with your mum, talk to her about things that interest her and don't just ask her what time dinner is. Your mother has a right on you as do all your family members.
SO FEAR ALLAH
AND LET THE INTERNAL FEAR AND LOVE OF ALLAH MANIFEST TO EXTERNAL GOOD DEEDS AND MANNERS
All praise and worship is for Allah alone. The master of the throne, the Everlasting the self subsisting.
Abundant peace and blessings be on his final messenger Muhammad (SAW)
