      A Mother's story!!


      Assalmualykum,

      I found this story on a facebook page "Muhammad SAW Greatest leader-Make Fastest Growing Page In Fb Share As Much" http://www.facebook.com/#!/muhammadthegrt Everyday I get to read something new and interesting.
      I came across this story a couple of weeks ago and ever since then I have been sharing it with my family and friends. At the end of the story I had a tears in my eyes and everyone who I read it did as well. I love my MOM and I am Thankfull to ALLAH have a Mother like her!!


      ************PLEASE READ*************
      IF EVER THOUGHT YOUR MOTHER WAS AN EMBARRASSMENT TO YOU!!!!




      A Mother's Story ♥ ♥ ♥
      My mom only had one eye. I hated her… She was such an embarrassment. She cooked for students and teachers to support the family.

      There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came to say hello to me. I was so embarrassed.
      How could she do this to me? I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out. The next day at school one of my classmates said, ‘EEEE, your mom only has one eye!’

      I wanted to bury myself. I also wanted my mom to just disappear. I confronted her that day and said, ‘ If you’re only gonna make me a laughing stock, why don’t you just die?’
      My mom did not respond… I didn’t even stop to think for a second about what I had said, because I was full of anger. I was oblivious to her feelings.

      I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with her. So I studied real hard, got a chance to go abroad to study.
      Then, I got married. I bought a house of my own. I had kids of my own. I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts. Then one day, my Mother came to visit me. She hadn’t seen me in years and she didn’t even meet her grandchildren.

      When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled at her for coming over uninvited. I screamed at her, ‘How dare you come to my house and scare my children!’ GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!’

      And to this, my mother quietly answered, ‘Oh, I’m so sorry. I may have gotten the wrong address,’ and she disappeared out of sight.
      One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house. So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip. After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity.

      My neighbors said that she died. I did not shed a single tear. They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.

      ‘My dearest son,

      I think of you all the time. I’m sorry that I came to your house and scared your children.
      I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion. But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you. I’m sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you were growing up.

      You see……..when you were very little, you got into an accident, and lost your eye. As a mother, I couldn’t stand watching you having to grow up with one eye. So I gave you mine.

      I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in my place, with that eye.

      With all my love to you,

      Your mother.’
      If you find this story useful, please share with a friend!

      I know sister, it's so sad. It's a lesson for us all to appreciate our parents and and never under estimate their power of love towards us.

      We have to care for those whom we love and don't want to loss them. Care now unless it will so late and you can only cry.

      Re: A Mother's story!!


      It made me cry. not the end but where she said, "I think i may have gotten the wrong address." How much she'd gotten hurt by her sons treatment of her.

      I think in Western countries children are raised so they disrespect their parents more and ar embarrased of them. i think even they are embarrased of parents who have no deformities.

      i have written an article about this:

      Religious Obligation Toward Parents

      In the modern age parents are regarded as trouble, especially by teens and young adults who want to have their own way, do their own thing. However this is not only unfair to the parents who sacrificed their lives for the well-being of children, but is also unislamic.

      Many verses of the Holy Quran as well as hadith sayings assert the respectful treatment of parents. Allah says in the Quran:

      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 your life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor.
      And out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility and say, “My Lord, bestow on them your Mercy just as they cherished me in childhood.”
      (Al-Quran, Chapter 17—Al-Israa, verses 24—25).

      In fact, kind and respectful behavior toward parents comes second to the worship of God as in many verses of the Quran kind treatment of parents, especially in old age, is mentioned right after the rights of God, as in the above verse.

      This is only fair because the parents took care of children when the children were weak and unable to survive on their own. Now when parents have become aged and dependent on their children, it’s their right that the children care for them, not uttering even the word “uff” to them.

      Although sometimes hard to resist, children should try their best not to argue with or talk back to aged parents. Anything that might hurt the parents feelings or make them feel weak or vulnerable should be absolutely avoided. Children should do their best to accompany their parents in old age and to make their end life as comfortable as possible. Afterall, we don’t know how long they will be with us before they depart and we never see them again.

      Kindness to one’s parents is a religious obligation. Even if parents tell you to do something unislamic, you should still be kind to them, while not accepting their unislamic instructions. Allah says in the Quran:

      We have enjoined on mankind kindness to parents, but if they (either of them) strive (to force) you to join with Me (in worship) anything of which you have no knowledge, don’t obey them. You have (all) to return to Me, and I will tell you (the Truth) of all that you did. (Ch. 29, Al-Ankabut, verse 8).

      As for advising and preaching to parents, you can see the example of how Prophet Ibrahim preached to his father. Allah says: And mention in the Book (the story of) Ibrahim: he was a man of truth; a Prophet. Behold, he said to his father: “O my father, why worship that which hears not and sees not and can profit you nothing? O my father, knowledge has come to me which has not reached you, so follow me. I will guide you to a way that is even and straight. O my father, serve not Satan, for Satan is a rebel against (God) the Most Gracious. O my father, I fear lest a Chastisement afflict you from (God) the Most Gracious, so that you become to Satan a friend.” The father replied: “Are you shrinking from my gods o Ibrahim? If you desist not, I will stone you. Now get away from me for a good long while.” Ibrahim said: “Peace be on you. I will pray to my Lord for your forgiveness, for He is to me Most Gracious.” (Ch. 16 Mary, verses 41—47). These verses provide a fine outline of how to treat parents who are not Muslims, how to preach to them and what to do if they resist.

      Other verses that talk about dealing with parents: ch. 31, v. 14-15; ch. 46, v. 15)
