Mother Stories: You are beautiful (Islam and Mother, Mother and Children, Mother Problems)

Mother Stories: You are beautifulIt's a phrase that my mother uses a lot.

I used to wonder, "How in the world can Mother call them beautiful?"

I am a logical, statistical man. I call things as I see them. I didn't see beauty.

My mother would tell people this with an enthusiasm they could feel. She was genuine. She was not telling them they were beautiful to get something from them. Most of the time, they were trying to get something from her.

I wondered for years what was wrong with Mother's perception and vision. Couldn't she see that all of the people she called beautiful, weren't beautiful?

You were beautiful only if you had a certain figure and face that was classed as beautiful by the laws of the world and glamour. Yet when my mother spoke, people smiled as though Glamour magazine had listed them as one of the beautiful people of the year.

It took me years to finally understand my mother's vision and the phrase, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." My mother had a spirit that could see the beauty in a person.

Most only look on the outside and then compare what they see with the standards the world has given them. That was what I was doing.

Today when you leave your house, carefully look at the first person whom you see and notice how beautiful they are.

They may be balding, fat, wrinkled, pimply, or any of the other things the world frowns upon as beauty. Look at them closely and look for the beauty. If you really look, you will see it.

I didn't believe that at first until I tried it. Sure enough, as I stared and opened another set of eyes, I was able to see the beauty in every person. No matter how rough or worn a person looked, each pain etched line held a glimpse of beauty.

You just had to look for the beauty. It's there. When you leave your home this morning, look hard at each person. You will start to see the beauty of every human who you didn't know existed. Trust me and try this. If you sincerely look, you will see it.

When you get home after seeing the beauty in faces you see, look in the mirror. You are beautiful.

Thank you mama for all of the beauty that you have not only seen, but added. She used to tell me: "Be like a honey bee which always sits on beautiful flowers".

Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: "Indeed Allah is Beautiful and He loves beauty".

In other place Prophet Muhammad (saw) says: "A believer is beautiful because Allah has given him beautiful characters".

Noble Qur'an emphasizes on remembering the beautiful things Allah (SWT) has created and praise them profusely. "And as for the blessing of your Lord, do announce it". Noble Qur'an (93:11)

Allah (SWT) Himself remembers and praises the good creations He has created; among them is His beloved Prophet Muhammad (saw): "And He exalted your praise (O Muhammad)". Noble Qur'an (94:4)

"Indeed Allah and His Angels are sending blessings upon the Prophet. O you who believe, send blessings upon him (you as well) and salute him with a (becoming) salutation". Noble Qur'an (33:56)

Dear children, you are beautiful. May Allah's beautiful blessings be upon you always.

Mother Stories: Devoted Mother (Mother and Islam, Mother and Children, Mother Problems)

Devoted Mother, Mother and IslamA mother duck and her little ducklings were on their way to the lake one day. The ducklings were very happy following their mother and quack-quacking along the way.

All of a sudden the mother duck saw a fox in the distance. She was frightened and shouted, "Children, hurry to the lake. There's a fox!"

The ducklings hurried towards the lake. The mother duck wondered what to do. She began to walk back and forth dragging one wing on the ground.

When the fox saw her he became happy. He said to himself, "It seems that she's hurt and can't fly! I can easily catch and eat her!"

Then he ran towards her.

The mother duck ran, leading the fox away from the lake. The fox followed her. Now he wouldn't be able to harm her ducklings. The mother duck looked towards her ducklings and saw that they had reached the lake. She was relieved, so she stopped and took a deep breath.

The fox thought she was tired and he came closer, but the mother duck quickly spread her wings and rose up in the air. She landed in the middle of the lake and her ducklings swam to her.

The fox stared in disbelief at the mother duck and her ducklings. He could not reach them because they were in the middle of the lake.

Dear children, some birds drag one of their wings on the ground when an enemy is going to attack. In this way they fool their enemies into thinking they are hurt. When the enemy follows them this gives their children time to escape.

Mother Stories: Mother, what can I give you? What can I do for you? (Islam and Mother)

Mother, what can I give you?After having reached at the peak of his career a man felt an urge to repay back to his mother for all that she had done for him.

So he asked her, "Mother, what can I give you? What can I do for you? I sincerely want to repay you for all the sacrifices you have made for me and for all the love you have showered upon me."

Mother looked surprised and said, "Why do you think about it. It was my duty so I did it, you don't have to repay me. Even if you want to, there is no way a man can ever repay his mother."

Despite her continuous refusal to ask for anything, he continued to persist. To put an end to the discussion, she said, "All right. If you must, then tonight you sleep on my bed, with me, just as you used to when you were a baby." He said, "That's a strange thing to ask for, but if it pleases you, I will."

As soon as he fell asleep, the mother got up and brought a bucket of water. She poured a mug full of water on his side. Feeling disturbed by the wetness under him, in his sleep he moved away to the other side of the bed. As he settled down, his mother poured another mug of water on the other side. In his slumber he tried to find space towards the foot post of the bed. Sometime later he woke up feeling that this part of the bed too was damp. He got up and saw his mother, with the mug in her hand. He asked angrily, "What are you doing mother? Why don't you let me sleep? How do you expect me to sleep on a wet bed?"

Mother said, "I slept with you, when you wetted the bed in the night. I changed your nappy (diaper made of cotton cloth, used in India) and moved you to the dry part of the bed, while I slept on the wet side. You wanted to repay me. Can you sleep here even for one night with me on a damp bed? If you can, I'll take it that you have repaid me."

Dear children, How true it is that of all the debts in the world, the one that can never be repaid is the one you owe to your mother. You can never repay the love, care and time your mother gave to bring you up. You are a part of her flesh and blood; don't forget this, because she never ever forgets it.

We have enjoined on man kindness to parents... Noble Qur'an (29:8)

May Allah (SWT) Almighty enable us to be of service and comfort to both our parents when we can and may He grant us sabr to serve them during their old age, ameen.

Mother Stories: Respect and Dignity of Mother in Islam (Mother and Children, Mother Problems)

Respect and Dignity of Mother in IslamA man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away.

As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing. He asked her what was wrong and she replied, "I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars."

The man smiled and said, "Come on in with me. I will buy you a rose." He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother's flowers.

As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, "Yes, please! You can take me to my mother." She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.

The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother's house.

Moral: Don't Send Artificial Loves to your parents. Give them the respect and courtesy they desire. They are your most precious Treasure, Care for them. God Forbid, if they leave this world then one can do nothing but regret.

Mother Stories: Lonely Senior Parents

This is a true narration of a young graduate who had just returned from his studies in USA. Let us read this article and then reflect on what virtues and values we actually hold for our beloved parents.

Some of us have no parents now since Allah (SWT) called them back because of the great pain and anguish some of us might have caused them when they were alive with us.

Now read on. If you have a heart you will also feel a great pain in your heart after reading this article.

A few days back when I had gone to a park for my evening walk I came across an elderly couple sitting on a bench looking completely dejected and engrossed in talking to each other. Tired myself and also curious to know about their topic of discussion I went and sat next to them. After a few moments what I could gather from their conversation was that their only son had migrated to America and they were left alone back here.

Every sentence they said to each other conveyed to me their longing their loneliness and their unconditional love for their only son. My eyes literally welled up with tears and in that instance I realized just how selfish we as children have become.

In our pursuit to achieve our goals and ambitions we tend to forget the two most important people of our lives: Our Parents. Those parents who protected us when we were young those parents who nurtured us physically and mentally and guided us through our lives, those parents who wanted us even before we were conceived.

What has the fate of these parents become now? Most of them are languishing in old age homes whilst most of them are leading a life of complete loneliness and most of them are discarded when they fall ill. Why do we children of our parents forget that we are what we are because of these two special people who brought us into this world protected us from nightmares and who encouraged us to chase our dreams.

Finally, I would like to quote a few lines written by a wise man which says,

"WHEN YOU WERE SMALL AND JUST A TOUCH AWAY I COVERED YOU WITH BLANKETS AGAINST THE COOL NIGHT AIR BUT NOW THAT YOU ARE TALL AND OUT OF REACH I STRETCH MY HANDS AND COVER YOU WITH PRAYERS."
