That's how substantial a mother is in the formulation of a family institution. We should never neglect or just 'forget' what we owe our mothers. Our hutang to our mothers is magnified due to the difficult nature of pregnancy itself, not to mention the love, care and nurturing our mothers showered us in our infancy and beyond. As our beloved Prophet Muhammad saw said, "God has forbidden for you to be undutiful to your mothers." And to whom should we show the most kindness? Prophet said, "Your mother, next your mother, next your mother, and then your father."
Everyday with them is an oppurtunity to grow as a person. Everyday away is a missed opportunity. Appreciating them brings us closer to Allah.
To me, nobody else has more immunity to 'tegur, marah,nasihat' us than our mothers. As a mother always wants whats best for their children, naturally anything kita buat yang salah, tak menentu, jahat, menjengkelkan will make our mothers upset and angry. If we are responsible, we should heed their advice. Problems will arise when we 'suka melawan' and 'tak nak dengar cakap' mostly. I find that this type of people will eventually get themselves into more trouble and their lives will never be peaceful or fruitful as they have defied their mothers. As long as they think ill of their mothers and continue with their disrespectful ways, selagi itulah tak berkat hidupnya. As said by our Prophet, "Paradise is at our mothers feet." Sudah terang lagi bersuluh, kan?
Mother's Day is coming soon. Let us all remember the person who carried us in their womb for nine months. With that, an unbreakable bond binds us to them. Salute to..... our Mothers.
p/s: Fathers play pivotal role too, don't get me wrong ;)
tapi tu tunggu Father's Day ok
