A man came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Messenger of God! Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship? The Prophet said: Your mother. The man said, ‘Then who?’ The Prophet said: Then your mother. The man further asked, ‘Then who?’ The Prophet said: Then your mother. The man asked again, ‘Then who?’ The Prophet said: Then your father. (Bukhari, Muslim).
Asalam aleikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh.
ALHAMDULILLAH!!!!!!!!!! A few months ago Allah blessed me with the most precious gift, He lifted my ranks and gave me the title of ummi. I was gifted my little princess, Laaibah. I have not felt a love so deep or a bond as strong as what I have with this girl. It is pointless trying to explain it because I will not/ cannot do it justice.
The last few months opened up a new chapter for me in many more ways than just becoming a mother. Perspective on life changes and being selfless is a part of your existance. My boss now has the front seat in my life and all I do is to see that she is well. It also made me appreciate my mother on a whole different level. The hadith above is now much clearer.
If Allah has still blessed you with your parents or one of them, thank Him and take good care of them. Treasure the moments you still have. Serve them and love them because you will never know the amount of love they have for you. If Allah has taken both of them or one of them away from you, then pray for them. Pray that Allah widens their graves and judges them with mercy and grants them the highest rank in the best of Jannah.
A journey I wake up more excited to take each day. May allah make us the best of parents. May He enable us to raise our children upon the haqq and as the best Muslimah. May she always be the coolness of our eyes and also a reason for our entry into Jannatul firdaus. May allah make it easy for all parents and also grant those without children patience and pious offsprings.
