  • Eight lies of mother

    1. The story began when I was a child; I was a son of a poor family in Africa. We did not even have enough food. Whenever meal times came, mother would often give me her portion of rice. While she was removing her rice into my bowl, she would say "Eat this rice, son. I'm not hungry". That was Mother's First Lie.

    2. When I was growing up, my persevering mother gave her spare time to go fishing in a river near our house, she hoped that from the fish she caught, she could gave me a little bit of nutritious food for my growth. After fishing, she would cook some fresh fish soup, which raised my appetite. While I was eating the soup, mother would sit beside me and eat the rest of the fish, which was still on the bone of the fish I had eaten. My heart was touched when I saw that. I then used my chopstick and gave the other fish to her. But she immediately refused and said "Eat this fish, son. I don't really like fish." That was Mother's Second Lie.

    3. Then, when I was in Junior High School...... to fund my studies, mother went to an economic enterprise to bring some used-match boxes that would need to be stuck together. It gave her some money to cover our needs. As the winter came, I woke up from my sleep and looked at my mother who was still awake, supported by a little candlelight and with perseverance she would continue the work of sticking some used-match boxes. I said, "Mother, go to sleep, it's late, tomorrow morning you still have to go to work." Mother smiled and said "Go to sleep, dear. I'm not tired." That was Mother's Third Lie.

    4. The final term arrived.......mother asked for leave from work in order to accompany me. While the sun was starting to shine strongly, my persevering mother waited for me under the heat for several hours. As the bell rang, which indicated that the final exam had finished, mother immediately welcomed me and poured me a cup of tea that she had brought in a flask. Seeing my mother covered with perspiration, I at once gave her my cup and asked her to drink too. Mother said "Drink, son. I'm not thirsty ! ” That was Mother's Fourth Lie.

    5. After the death of my father due to illness, my poor mother had to play her role as a single parent. She had to fund our needs alone. Our family's life was more complicated. No days without suffering. Our family's condition was getting worse, a kind uncle who lived near our house assisted now and then. Our neighbours, often advised my mother to marry again. But mother was stubborn and didn't take their advice; she said "I don't need love." That was Mother's Fifth Lie.

    6. After I had finished my studies and got a job, it was the time for my old mother to retire. But she didn't want to; she would go to the marketplace every morning, just to sell some vegetables to fulfill her needs. I, who worked in another city, often sent her some money to help her, in fulfilling her needs, but she would not accept the money. At times, she even sent the money back to me. She said "I have enough money." That was Mother's Sixth Lie.

    7. After graduating with a Bachelors Degree, I then continued to do a Masters Degree. It was funded by a company through a scholarship program, from a famous University in America. I finally worked in the company. With a good salary, I intended to bring my mother to enjoy her life in America. But my lovely mother didn't want to bother her son. She said to me, "I'm not use to." That was Mother's Seventh Lie.

    8. In her old age, mother got stomach cancer and had to be hospitalized. I, who lived miles away, across the ocean, went home to visit my dearest mother. She lay in weakness on her bed after having an operation. Mother, who looked so old, was staring at me in deep thought. She tried to spread her smile on her face...but it was a noticeable effort. It was clear that the disease had weakened mother's body. She looked so frail and weak. I stared at my mother with tears flowing. My heart was hurt,….. so hurt, seeing my mother in that condition. But mother with the little strength she had, said "Don't cry, my dear. I'm not in pain." That was Mother's Eighth Lie.

    After saying her eighth lie, my Dearest mother closed her eyes forever !

    Re: Eight lies of mother


    Abdullah ibn Umar(radhiyallahu anhu), once saw a man from Yemen carrying his mother on his back and going around the Kaaba in his tawaaf. Rather than showing any sign of complaint, the man was happy, repeating a line of poetry in which he likened himself to a camel his mother was mounting. He looked at Abdullah ibn Umar (radhiyallahu anhu) and asked him. Whether by doing so he discharged his debt to his mother. Ibn Umar(R.A.) said: No, you have not even paid back one twinge of her labor pain when she gave birth to you."

        Re: Eight lies of mother

        i came across a nice poem about mother...

        What a mother would say

        I GAVE YOU LIFE
        BUT CANNOT LIVE IT FOR YOU

        I CAN TEACH YOU THINGS
        BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU LEARN.

        I CAN GIVE YOU DIRECTIONS
        BUT I CANNOT BE THERE TO LEAD YOU

        I CAN ALLOW YOU FREEDOM
        BUT I CANNOT ACCOUNT FOR IT

        I CAN TAKE YOU TO TEMPLE
        BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU BELIEVE

        I CAN TEACH YOU RIGHT FROM WRONG
        BUT I CANNOT ALWAYS DECIDE FOR YOU

        I CAN BUY YOU BEAUTIFUL CLOTHS
        BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU BEAUTIFUL INSIDE

        I CAN OFFER YOU ADVICE
        BUT I CANNOT ACCEPT IT FOR YOU

        I CAN GIVE YOU LOVE
        BUT I CANNOT FORCE IT UPON YOU

        I CAN TEACH YOU TO SHARE
        BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU UNSELFISH

        I CAN TEACH YOU RESPECT
        BUT I CANNOT FORCE YOU TO SHOW HONOR

        I CAN ADVICE YOU ABOUT FRIENDS
        BUT CANNOT CHOOSE THEM FOR YOU

        I CAN TELL YOU THE FACTS OF LIFE
        BUT I CANNOT BUILD YOUR REPUTATION

        I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT DRINKS


        I CAN WARN YOU ABOUT DRUGS


        I CAN TELL YOU ABOUT LOFTY GOALS


        I CAN TEACH YOU KINDNESS


        I CAN WARN YOU ABOUT SINS
        BUT I CANNOT MAKE YOU MORAL.

        I CAN TEACH YOU ABOUT GOD
        BUT I CANNOT MAKE GOD YOUR LORD.

        I CAN TELL YOU HOW TO LIVE
        BUT I CANNOT GIVE YOU ETERNAL LIFE.
        I CAN LOVE YOU WITH UNCONDITIONAL LOVE ALL OF MY LIFE AND I WILL ALWAYS..

        Our mother is truly a Gift of God

                If a man spreads his secret with his own tongue
                and blames another... then he is a fool.If his own breast is too narrow to conceal his own secret,Then the breast of the one in whom he places it is evennarrower. :) :) -Imam shafi-

                    Re: Eight lies of mother {a regret story}



                    This is mashallah so beautiful and heart warming. The reason why I liked this story so much is that my mother is currently in the hospital for a re-occurrence of cancer. What started out as breast cancer has now metastasized to her stomach, bones, uterus. Alhamdullilah, I am getting so much support from the muslims in my community: the phone hasn't stopped ringing the past two days of people inquiring about her health and about us, her kids. I even have trouble keeping the food being sent from spoiling, alhamdullilah.

                    I visited her at the hospital on Thursday and I couldn't help looking at her. My tears started flowing on their own: it was a weird kind of cry. I had no control over my She looked so weak...to the point where I even have trouble recognizing her. I, then, remembered all the times where I haven't acted in the best way towards her. I regret every high voice I blurted out, I regret every misplaced thought I made about her, I regret refusing any task she asked for and I didn't hurriedly do., I regret not including her in every bit of detail my life, I regret ever giving her troubled sleep, I regret thinking about not having her be my first priority.


                    A couple of months ago, I was at Central Zone, I remembered one of the speakers asked us, during the lecture to call our moms and tell her that we love her. It was the best thing I've ever done. It's as though the speaker knew about me. I want you to do the same: if your mom is alive now, today, call her now and tell her you love her, and ask her if she needs anything now. If your mom is no longer with us, make a duaa for her. Ask Arrahmaan to have mercy on her soul and grant her Jannah.


                    The one thing I ask for whomever reads this is to make a prayer for my mom to come back soon home, well and victorious in the battle of cancer.

                          May Allah Ta'ala give us all the ability to obey the rights of our parents and if they have passed away then may He forgive us of our shortcomings towards our parents and grant them Jannatul Firdaus and make them from amongst who shall view His Glorious Face in Jannah.

                              Do not try to run away from trials and tribulations, but endure them with patience. They cannot be avoided, and there is nothing for it but to endure them with patience. How can you expect the whole of this world, and all that has been created therein, to undergo change and transformation just to suit your convenience? The Prophets are the best of all creatures, yet they have always had to suffer afflictions and so it is for their followers, those who tread in their footsteps as they walk along their highway, emulating their example.


                              Shaikh Abdul Qadir al-Jilani
