Mother and Child, a Unique Bond


Last Updated on Monday, 27 May 2013 14:14 Monday, 30 July 2012 07:24

The most precious wealth of any nation is its children. They are the future of any nation. Today they maybe playing on the laps of their mothers, but they are the very ones who will turn out to be the builders of tomorrow. The mother and child enjoy a unique bond, which in turn adds to the mother’s responsibility of nurturing her child. The mothers lap is either going to be a garden of good qualities from which her child will enjoy or a pit of evil habits that will haunt and take over the innocent child. If the mother is pious, she performs her salaah on time, daily she makes time for Quraan, zikr and du’aa, she displays good character and she stays away from sin, then automatically the child will follow the same pathway. It is not possible that a person plants flowers and only weeds will grow. The good we sow is the good we will harvest.

Fasting develops Piety

“O you who believe! Fasting has been made compulsory upon you just as it was compulsory upon those before you (the Jews and Christians), so that you may develop taqwa (piety).” (Surah Baqarah, v183)

This verse highlights the love and mercy that Allah Ta’ala has for us. Allah Ta’ala has not merely instructed us to fast, but rather Allah Ta’ala has made the task easy for us by informing us that the previous nations also had to fast. Naturally if they had managed to fast, we too will be able to carry it out. Fasting develops piety. The only way to give up sin is to go against one’s carnal desire of eating, drinking and relations. This in turn weakens the carnal desire and strengthens the will-power to say “no” to any unlawful desire. Thus fasting develops self-restraint and leads us on to the pathway of piety.


O my Rabb! Build for me a home by You in Jannah

Despite being the wife of a tyrant ruler who claimed to be the highest Rabb (Supreme Being), she courageously brought Imaan in Moosa (alaihis salaam). When Firaun heard about this, he became extremely harsh towards her and imposed many punishments on her. Firaun had pegs nailed into her hands and feet. When this was done, the angels shaded her and she made dua, “O my Rabb! Build for me a home by You in Jannah”. Allah then showed her a vision of her home in Jannah. She continued the dua, “and save me from Firaun, from his deeds and from the oppressive nation.” 

Subhanallah! How firm Aasiyah was on her Imaan. On the contrary today, over minor difficulties, we begin to utter words of kufr (disbelief). We need to remind ourselves that Imaan is the most valuable gift we have. Irrespective of the nature of the difficulty, we should never do anything contrary to Imaan. Aasiyah’s steadfastness in the face of such severe hardships did not go in vain. In return she will be blessed with the great honour of being the wife of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) in Jannah. Patience and steadfastness on deen bring great results.


No Work & Still Tired

We all constantly complain that there is no time and we are sick and tired. Where have we gone wrong? Many women have servants all around them. Some women even have a separate servant to take care of the home - from dressing beds to cutting up her meat and vegetables, while another servant is employed to take care of the kids - from feeding them, changing diapers, giving them night baths, and tucking them into their beds! What then does Madam do? Well she is very busy shouting at the servants and instructing them. She is always displeased and complaining about the work they do. Often madam forgets that the servants working for her also have feelings of their own. We need to address our servants in a manner that we would like to be addressed. The irony of it all is, after having all our work done by others we still complain that we are tired and feeling weak!
