The Mother

Salam (peace be on you) dear readers,

My today’s post is very different from the professional and topical ones you’ll be used to reading in this blog. It probably won’t be as coherent but will be from heart. It’s actually quite late so I’ll try to keep it brief.

Today, let us take a moment and think about mothers. Yes, let us think about them in our busy lives even when it’s not a mothers’ day to celebrate, even when we don’t need them to do something for us, even when we don’t want them for comforting us, even when we don’t need their favors, just think about them without any need and reason other than that they’re our mothers. And that should be sufficient.

Mother …………… Who’s a mother? A girl or a woman who has her own life and dreams and many a times see them killed or snatched away or even herself choose to sacrifice them, to bring lives in this world. Lives which are us all. Her kids. Kids who become her life, her happiness, her entire universe and what not!

She forgets herself, the world and everything else becomes secondary to her kids and even if it still exists for her it’s only for her children, She goes through everything to bring a smile on her kids’ faces, on our faces. To make us happy becomes her biggest pleasure. To see us successful becomes her epitome of success. Our pain becomes unbearable for her. Our tears shatters her world. She’s always praying for us. She’s always looking out for us.  Somehow she’s always there for us.

She forgets herself for she sees herself in us. She happily bears all the pains to ensure that we’re happy. She willingly makes all the sacrifices to keep us safe and make us successful.  Then one day, she goes away silently and the world is not the same anymore.

Yes, the life goes on but does it really? Then again, she’s there somewhere looking upon us longing for our smiles ………. her dreams are what keeps us going. Yes, it will never be the same again for there is no replacement of parents and particularly a mother. So love your mothers, respect them and obey them. Honour them and value them for you don’t know their true value until they’re gone and then you just can’t bring them back.

May Allah Almighty bless all our mothers and grant heaven to all those that passed away. Aameen
