Mothers are a blessing from God

Mother's Day in the United States is held annually on the second Sunday of May. It celebrates motherhood and it is a time to appreciate mothers by giving gifts, cards, flowers, candy, and a meal at a restaurant. Mothers are the most cherished and invaluable gift from God and there is no way we can ever thank them for all the sacrifices they make for us.

Mothers, especially when they grow old, should be seen as blessings instead of a burden. The Holy Quran states, “Thy Lord has commanded, worship none but Him, and show kindness to parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age with thee,  never say unto them any word expressive of disgust nor reproach them, but address them with excellent speech” (17:24).  Therefore, when we care for our parents, we are fulfilling God’s commandment as well.  For those who have lost their mothers, please pray for them as prayers are the special gifts for them.

It is very important to be patient with parents as they get older. Our lives are so busy and we get annoyed so easily. We forget how much patience and sacrifice they showed up when we were growing up. We think changing diapers is a nuisance now, but many of our mothers didn't even have the luxury of using disposable diapers or machines for washing clothes.
