Mother’s Day is a special time to reflect what our mothers have done for us. My mother sacrificed her career so she can stay home to raise me, help me with my education, and teach me the rights and wrongs of the world.
The prophet Muhammad once stated, “I know of no other deed that brings people closer to Allah than kind treatment and respect towards one’s mother.” Thus, mothers should be held with the utmost respect and dignity and we should be obedient to our mothers.
I hope we take time to appreciate the sacrifices of our mothers, not just on Mother’s Day, but all year long.
