My Mother, My Paradise

Its mak's "official birthday" today...

[ the date was actually chosen when arwah ayah retired from police force and had to change his police's i.c to public's and since mak didnt have hers at the time, she chose today's date as well....so it's actually our parents official birthday... :-) ]

"O Allah! Forgive me my sins, and the sins of my parents, have mercy on them both as they have looked after me when I was little".

I can never repay my mother for what she has done for me, but I can at least try to please her and ask Allah to repay them for me. My mother is indeed a great blessing from Allah SWT.


The prophet (pbuh) was once asked by a companion: "O messenger of Allah! Are there any deeds that I could do to be of service to my parents after they have passed away?"

The prophet (pbuh), replied: "Yes there are: you should supplicate for them and ask Allah to forgive them; you should carry out (fulfill) their promises; you should maintain good relations with your relatives ; and you should honour their friends."

(Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah and Ibn Hibban)

My Mother, My Paradise
(by Jaihoon)

She served me until this day
Her love the sun, mine a ray

She lost sleep for me to dream
She left food, for me to be fed


Of mind and body she suffered
Her love grew as me she carried

I kicked at her bosom when an infant
Yet she fondled me without being hesitant

She inspired my legs and taught me to walk
All the words I pronounced listening to her talk


'Hasbi Rabbi' she sang in my ears, (such that)-
'Noor Muhammad' shone all these years
(sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)

All my acts of worship are but under her feet
Not two-
But three worlds I need to show her respect

If this son were to enter paradise
The warmth of her feet would be the cause

Her prayers for me are sincere than my own
She bore all the pain to see me so far grown

The pleasure of my Lord
Is in doing to her good

Even as I laid in her womb
Or be buried in the tomb-

(El Branden)

She will continue to pour love
And pray for me forever…

If His Mercy is the entrance-
She is the key to my paradise!



Today is just an excuse to wish u "officially" but InsyaAllah,
I'll always love u,
and pray for your happiness,

May the blessings of Allah SWT be with u always.
