The Prophet Muhammad said, may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him: Your Heaven lies under the feet of your mother
"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 honor. And out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: ‘My Lord! bestow on them Thy Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood' "
Well, today is not a mother's day or my mother's birthday but I just found this verse of Quran and also, hadith from Prophet Muhammad :) For me, everyday is a mother's day!
I love my mom and Igaduh gaduh biasa or gurau manja is normal to me. Well, of course not in the form of yelling or scolding or whatnot. The past weeks, I've a bit of emotional instability. I can't imagine a daughter who already became a mother now scold her own mother. Blaming the mom for everything, as an example, blaming her own mom because her baby daughter had swallow some methyl silicate or blaming her mother because of everything that has happened. That was unacceptable for me. Yes, it was.
When i asked, why scold your mom. She said with no guilt in her face. That's how I rolled. That's how I treat my mom. She also said that although I scold my mom, I love her. And I was like :O So, you scold your mom and you never ever think of how she felt, and yet you say you love her. Astaghafirullah. Above are some verse in Quran that clearly said
"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 honor"
Say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honor. So, is shouting can be classed as honor? The point here is, I am not pointing my fingers solely on the woman mentioned but to all of us and a great reminder for myself as well. Think again, we might not knowing or realize what we have said to our mother. Or sometimes, our actions that literally hurting them. We never think and bother about how they feel. But rather of how we feel and they should treat us the way we like it.
We only have one mother in this world. The one and only that has brought us here in this world. Why can't we appreciate them. Well, we did but maybe we have to show more. So, I fell there's a need to say I love you, ibu to my mom every single day. What say you ? ;)
