The Foundation of Life

Dedicated to all mothers whose roles are never ending.

The beauty of a woman:
Is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries,
or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman:
must be seen in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman:
is not in a facial mole,
but true beauty in a woman,
is reflected in her soul.
The beauty of woman is in her modesty.
And the real glamour of her is her honesty.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
the passion that she shows.
And the beauty of a woman,
with passing years – only grows!

And the paradise is under the feet of your mothers. – Prophet Muhammad (saw)

Islam has greatly emphasized the issue of loving and respecting the parents, the father and the mother. In our infancy and childhood, we needed the protection, love and nurturing of the parents; but when they become old, they need us to protect them and take care of them.

“Your Lord has commanded that you shall not worship (anyone) but Him and to be good to the parents. If either or both of them reach old age with you, say not to them (so much as) ‘Ugh’ nor chide them, and speak to them a generous word. And lower for them ‘the wings of humility’ out of mercy; and pray; ‘O my Lord! Have mercy on them as they brought me up (when I was) little.'” (17:23-24)

However, out of the two, the mother has been given greater priority as far as kindness is concerned. Once Hakim bin Hizam came to the Prophet of Islam and asked: “To whom should I be kind?” The Prophet replied, “Your mother.” Hakim asked, “Then to whom?” The Prophet said, “Your mother.” Hakim asked, “Then to whom?” The Prophet replied, “Your mother.” Only when Hakim asked the fourth time that, “Then to whom?” the Prophet replied, “Your father.”

Truly kindness highlights a mother’s status.
