An Angel - My Mom

Islam declares - the treatment of women in general and especially the high position mothers hold in Islam.

Amongst the clearest examples of Islam's honoring women is the great status of the mother in Islam. Islam commands kindness, respect and obedience to parents and specifically emphasizes and gives preference to the mother. Islam raises parents to a status greater than that found in any other religion or ideology.

The command to be good to one's parents begins right from the Qur'an. Allah says:

"Worship God and join not any partners with Him; and be kind to your parents..."

"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell
"MOTHER,"A word that means the world to me.

If someone came to you today and offered you a free lunch, what would be your response? No doubt you would smile, speak kindly to them, and reserve a special place in your heart for their memory. Why is it then that our parents receive only cold stares, harsh words and bitter treatment and they are who they are in our lives? For Twenty or Thirty years they feed us, clothe us, wash us, and shower their mercy on our soft skin.Their love for us never dies even if we hurt them.They always protect and shield us.

We all have parents – whether they are with us or not – and many have not understood the severity of their position in our lives and their right to be respected and revered. Today I want to remind everyone of their true position may Allah have mercy on them all.

It seems to be pretty much a given that college students aren't very big fans of their parents. They give us unreasonable rules when we come home. They call too often. They pry into every detail of our lives.Even my mama does this and it irritated me so much sometimes but now as life has taught me its true meaning-what all I can say is sorry mama for thinking that you didn't really understand me.

You're not just my Mother but my best friend,you always wanted to be my friend but poor me that I couldn't value our friendship rather fooled myself with friendship of those who didn't know what friendship meant.

I cherish every moment we spend together,laughing and crying through the good times
and the bad whether we're just watching a movie or you're holding me while I cry.Mama you always catch me when i lie and say that i really m fine.How can you see the sadness behind my eyes?How can you feel that I need you badly when I try to hide the pain,the tears,the loneliness.How could you find the truth hidden in me when I succeed in giving you a smile though a fake one as I'm suffocating to vent out the pain and cry as hard as I can.You hug me and I burst crying.How do you understand that I require your precious hug?

You always assure me it'll be all right,things will get well. Everything will be sorted.You act so strong but I know you became strong for me when deep inside you feel so weak.It all means so much to me.you've always loved me unconditionally
and encouraged me to do the best with my life.You always guided me but I felt short to reach your expectations but I promise now to lead my life as per your guidance your expectations,your wishes.

You've been by my side through every victory and every heartache.You're always there
when I need you most and I am so grateful to have a Mom like you.This not only I feel for You but even your son feels.

Mama I don't say it aloud but I love you so much.You truly are an ANGEL.I am sorry for everything I did that hurt you.Though I couldn't explain you the things that were misinterpreted to you.I couldn't explain anything to you.I know I have hurt you and but I know that you still trust me and I assure you that I wont ever let your trust and faith in me go astray.I promise You that I will prove every single person wrong who presented a different me before you.I swear by Allah that i won't spare the person who was responsible to bring a tear in your eyes or will even think to do that mistake.

How do I tell you the love I have for you
All my life you have been there for me
When I was hurt you mended the scratches
And when I was sad, you held me upon your knee.

I cannot even begin to tell you
All the wonderful deeds for me you have done
The love and care that only you could do

Mom, I owe everything to you;
Your smile,your blessings,your caring and love,
You have molded me,protected me till now and you will do it ever
And I thank the Allah above..

God bless you, Mom!!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH
