“We have enjoined on the human being kindness to his parents; in pain did his mother bear him, and in pain did she give him birth” 46:15.
“Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honour. And out of kindness, lower to them the wings of humility, and say:
“My Rabb! Have mercy on them (parents) just as they nourished (cherished & sustained) me when I was young (17:23-24).
“We have enjoined on the human being (to be good) to his parents; his mother bore him with weakness upon weakness and his weaning takes two years; show gratitude to Me and to your parents; to Me is your final goal. (31:14).
A mother in Ahadith
“Janna lies at the feet of your mothers” Rasulullah (SAW)
A person asked: “O’ Prophet! Towards whom should I exhibit goodness and kindness?” The Prophet replied: “Towards your mother.” The man then asked: “And after that towards whom?” The Prophet again said: “Your Mother.” He asked again: “And then?” Once again, he replied: “Your mother.” For the fourth time the man asked: “And then?” This time he said: “(Then towards) Your father.” Biharul Anwar, Volume 74, Page 49
A person came to the Prophet (pbuh) and said: ‘O’ Prophet of Allah! I have committed every known evil act. Is there a chance that I may be forgiven?’ The Prophet asked him: ‘Are any of your parents still alive?’ The man replied: ‘My father.’ He said to him: ‘Go and be good and kind to him.’ When he left, the Prophet said: ‘If only his mother had been alive.’” Biharul Anwar, Volume 74, Page 82
