I hope everyone has been good today and bought something nice for their mothers today.

:-D
 
I was too generous this year.
My Mom better give me a holiday or something for my birthday
 
When is it?
actually come to think of it who cares about it?

Why should we do someothing special on ONE day a year, a day that has been invented by god knows who, as is like Valentines,Fathers etc etc a whole load of commercial *****
 
Totally agree with GA.

My love for my mother ( she passed away 5 years ago yesterday ) as is fresh as when I was a kid in her arms ! No date/day etc can decrease that - Days will come and go but this love remains forever, everyday.

May Allah bless her soul and may Allah help us ALL to appreciate and love our parents when they are alive - believe me you miss their voice, their wisdom when they are gone!
 
All these days are bull, thanksgiving day,fathers day,mothers day,valetines and the list goes on.
 
Assalaamu Alaikum

There are three prayers which are accepted without any uncertainty; they are: the prayer of one who has been oppressed: the prayer of a traveler; and the prayer of parents for their child. (Ahmad, Al-Bukhari, Abu Dawud and Al-Tirmidhi).
Your Parents


Sahih Bukhari Volume 8, Book 73, Number 2:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
A man came to Allah's Apostle and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Who is more entitled to be treated with the best companionship by me?" The Prophet said, "Your mother." The man said. "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "Your mother." The man further said, "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "Your mother." The man asked for the fourth time, "Who is next?" The Prophet said, "Your father."

"Paradise lies at the mother's feet"


Your mother and father have taken care of you since you were born. It is because of them and the grace of Allah that you are who you are, and that you have what you do. You are a very lucky person! So as they take care of you, they are counting on you to behave, listen to what they say, and be the best son or daughter you can.

When your parents get older and can't take care of themselves so well, you'll get your chance to help them as much as you can.

Here are some ayahs from the Holy Qur'an that tell us about the importance of our parents!

Surah LUQMAN 031.014 (Yusuf Ali translation)

And We have enjoined on man (to be good) to his parents: in travail upon travail did his mother bear him, and in years twain was his weaning: (hear the command), "Show gratitude to Me and to thy parents: to Me is (thy final) Goal.

Surah AL-ISRA (THE NIGHT JOURNEY)17.023 (Yusuf Ali translation)

Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that ye 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.

Surah AL-ANKABOOT (THE SPIDER) 029.008 (Yusuf Ali translation)

We have enjoined on man kindness to parents: but if they (either of them) strive (to force) thee to join with Me (in worship) anything of which thou hast no knowledge, obey them not. Ye have (all) to return to me, and I will tell you (the truth) of all that ye did.

Surah AL-AHQAF (THE DUNES) 046.017 (Yusuf Ali translation)

But (there is one) who says to his parents, "Fie on you! Do ye hold out the promise to me that I shall be raised up, even though generations have passed before me (without rising again)?" And they two seek Allah's aid, (and rebuke the son): "Woe to thee! Have faith! for the promise of Allah is true." But he says, "This is nothing but tales of the ancients!"

Surah AL-ANAAM (CATTLE) 006.151 (Yusuf Ali translation)

Say: "Come, I will rehearse what Allah hath (really) prohibited you from": Join not anything as equal with Him; be good to your parents; kill not your children on a plea of want;- We provide sustenance for you and for them;- come not nigh to shameful deeds. Whether open or secret; take not life, which Allah hath made sacred, except by way of justice and law: thus doth He command you, that ye may learn wisdom.

everday is mother's day and should be.

and fathers/sisters/brothers/grandmother/grandfather day....
 
umm I disagree again :-D
no need to go that deep into the whole lineage

a few close ones should suffice I would say
 
On the acct of prayers, a father's prayer for the child is considered stronger than the mothers. at one pt in hadis the Prophet (PBUH) siad
a father praying for the child is like a prophet for his ummah

Hey I am trying to save you money on the card thingy, something like "Card shard may kiya rakha hai - Har din hee <insert relation name here> ka day hai !"
 
ha ha :eek:D

you can take the boy out of the misers but you cant take the miser out of boy (urdu translation: you can take the boy out of the memons bu tyou cant take the memon out of the boy) :-D
 
I guess we can also think of it as celebration of motherhood? Just have this one special day where we can take out few minutes and remind them how much we really do love them. I mean I don't know about you guys but my mom is pretty fed up with me and I can't remember the last time I went upto my mother or ever and said I love you or anything. Even though I do love my mother alot!

However for past few years I did try to do something special for her...last year she was in Pakistan and I sent her some flowers along with a cake. Once I called to wish her she seemed very proud/happy. For me I think that was enough to celebrate this day for many many years to come!

Actually, I am Bohri but dont follow the Jamaat - I follow Ahle Sunnah - hope that clarifies a few things....and I dont speak gujrati!
 
si si :-D
when i said memon, i didnt mean you particularly so apologies if it caused offense, i was kidding :)
 
even if its commercial, i don't think we should be staying away from it. money multiplier effect in economics. our retail brothers wouldn't mind if we bought gifts for mother dearest on mothers day. we give money to them, they put money in bank, bank loans out money, economy happy, we get jobs. (ok, so if we want to make it more Islamic, the bank doesn't 'loan' out the money, they 'invest' the money).

i even recall reading somewhere in the Quran i believe, that spending money should be encouraged, although i do apologize for not providing a direct quote.
 
Well i used to call it "Ammiday" when i was little cos its more effectionate.Have a nice one for those who'll be spending it with dear Ammi.Mines passed on when i was very young,Allah kareem.
 
Mothers’ Day Posts

What do you think of people with Mother’s Day posts on social media when the said mothers are not on social media themselves?
 
Cringy as hell

I got friends messaging me happy mother's day. Why because i have a mother, don't everyone have one and why wish me? Lol

Stupid people

Also in actual, I feel for people who unfortunately might have lost their mother. Days like these and with all this social media drama, those people might feel the worst.

I lost my father and i can tell how awful I feel on fathers day with all this social media drama.
