Mother's day

Since 2012-11-15

When the mothers, who are resident in elderly house, were asked about their wish, all of them said "death", this wish expresses their feeling of defeating, sadness and isolation because their sons abandoned them at the time they need every help.




In the name of Allah.....

Praise be to Allah and peace be upon our prophet Muhammad and his family and companions and all those who followed them till the day of judgment.....

Mother's day

Outside it will be mercy, and inside it will be torment.

Mother's day

Dear beloved brothers:

Recently, an alien habit has spread in our Islamic societies, namely the mother's day celebration, so what is the story of this celebration? And what is its jurisprudential ruling in our Islamic sharia?

The story of this celebration:

O Muslims : firstly, we should know that this celebration is a western habit and is considered one of their numerous feasts such as birthday, Christmas, Easter day, cross day, valentine's day, labor day, woman day, child day, tree day and other invented days.

The reality of family in the west:

When we have a look on the family in the western societies, we will find it a disassembled and severed family as there is neither connection, compassionate, intimacy nor love between its members and even the relations between mother and father and their sons, brothers with each other’s, relatives and neighbors, were all broken off.

The reality of mother in the west:

Usually in the west when the mother attains old age, she is put in an infirmary or elderly house or isolated in an angle of her dark house and her sons or daughters remember her only when they are told about her death, then they go her grave to put some flowers on it and return to their homes.

The reason for innovating the mother's day:

as a result of the forgoing realities, the idea of mother day was born to cure the shortage and severance of relations between mothers and their sons and daughters, so one day of March was specialized for mother to be visited, given presents and celebrated . In that day the sons and daughters go to the infirmary, elderly house or their mothers' deserted house carrying a white flower or a measly present in addition to a false smile, feelings of hypocrisy and useless words to express their modesty before their mothers for few hours, then at the end of the day, they left and resume their severance and disobedience.

When the mothers, who are resident in elderly house, were asked about their wish, all of them said "death", this wish expresses their feeling of defeating, sadness and isolation because their sons abandoned them at the time they need every help.

Some harms of celebrating what is called (mother’s day):

O Muslims, encouraging people to celebrate with this day has dangerous harms, the most important of which are the following:

Firstly, as for mothers:

1- It hurts the women who have no children as they wish if they had children to celebrate them as the children do with their mothers.

2- It includes a call for not having children as the young men and women know that if they beget children, they will sever and disobey them as they did with their parents.

Secondly, as for sons:

1- It hurts the children who lost their mothers, as this bad habit moves the feelings of sons and daughters and increases their sadness and crying (for this reason its name was changed to family day).

2- The son who doesn't give a present for his mother is blamed and considered guilty although he doesn't commit a shariah violation.

3- It encourages youth not to marry least they beget disobedient sons, so in the western societies, they substitute marriage with the illegal sexual relations with girlfriends.

Note: Although the precautions taken to prevent pregnancy like pills or miscarriage, woman unintentionally, may beget children because of the illegal sexual relations. In the United States alone, about 1500000 illegitimate child are annually born, while in France the percent of delivering birth without marriage reached 40% of the total birth number on 1997.

Those illegitimate children are deposited in foundling houses and then grow up to form a criminal and perverted generation that forms a great danger on their societies as they will be full of hatred and consider themselves as victims who don't commit any fault.

...praise be to Allah who has saved us of all these evils...

Warning: Songs, articles, stories, plays and series that the mass media are broadcasting at this occasion increase the suffering of both children who lost their mothers and women who have no children.

Disobedience for parents is the secret of dogs’ acquisition in the west:

The Almighty Allah has deposited the passion of maternity and warm-heartedness in the woman, so she always has the desire to have children to discharge these passions, but in the west the woman knows that she will not find the gratitude from her son who doesn't visit her but rarely, so she discharged her passions in possessing dogs and other animals because she thinks that these animals(though their dangerous diseases and ugly scenes) are more loyal.

Note: While a lot of people in the world are dying of hunger and illness, a woman made a bequest of five billion Dollars for her dog and another five billion Dollars for another group of dogs.

Dear brothers: This is one of the farces of the western civilization which some Muslims are overwhelmed with it.

The status of parents in Islam:

O Muslims: In Islam, the mother doesn't need a special day (like mother day) in which her sons celebrate or give her presents, because Almighty Allah has recommended us to take care with our parents along the year and in all times and places, the Almighty Allah says “And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him, and to parents, good treatment.” [Al-‘Israa’ 17:23]



{وَقَضَىٰ رَبُّكَ أَلَّا تَعْبُدُوا إِلَّا إِيَّاهُ وَبِالْوَالِدَيْنِ إِحْسَانًا...}
الإسراء: 23

Transliteration: Waqada rabbuka alla taAAbudoo illa iyyahu wabialwalidayni ihsanan

The Muslim mother is enjoying daily happiness with her sons who are trying by all means to acquire her satisfaction, because they know that the obedience and good treating with mother, is the way to paradise. The prophet (peace be upon him) has ordered one of his companions to obey his mother saying" stay close to her feet (serving her), you will find paradise." [Declared Hasan (good) by Al-Albani]


‹‹الزم رجلها فثم الجنة›› حسنه الألباني

Almighty Allah has warned us against disobedience and severance of relations with parents, especially the mother as He distinguished her with more honor because she is suffering in pregnancy, breastfeeding her babies and breeding the children. Abu Huraira reported that a person came to Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) and said: Who among the people is most deserving of a fine treatment from my hand? He said: Your mother. He again said: Then who (is the next one)? He said: Again it is your mother (who deserves the best treatment from you). He said: Then who (is the next one)? He (the Holy Prophet) said: Again, it is your mother. He (again) said: Then who? Thereupon he said: Then it is your father." [Agreed upon]


‹‹ جاء رجل إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال : يا رسول الله ، من أحق الناس بحسن صحابتي ؟ قال : ( أمك ) . قال : ثم من ؟ قال : ( ثم أمك ) . قال : ثم من ؟ قال : ( ثم أمك ) . قال : ثم من ؟ قال : ( ثم أبوك )››
متفق عليه

The virtues of being dutiful to parents in Islam:

Obeying and being dutiful for parents is one of the best deeds and more lovable to Allah, even if the parents or one of them were non-Muslims, Narrated Asma' daughter of Abu Bakr: My mother came to me, hoping (for my favor) during the lifetime of the Prophet, I asked the Prophet, "May I treat her kindly?" He replied, "Yes." [Agreed upon]



‹‹قدمت علي أمي وهي مشركة ، في عهد رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ، فاستفتيت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ، قلت: إن أمي قدمت وهي راغبة ، أفأصل أمي ؟ قال : ( نعم ، صلي أمك ) ››
متفق عليه

Also among the ways of dutifulness to parents is to be dutiful to their friends and relatives, giving charity on behalf of them, invoking Allah to bestow His mercy upon them and to do righteous deeds with the intention of their benefit even after their death. The prophet (peace be upon him) said “the best of dutifulness to one's parents, is to be dutiful to the father's intimate people (relatives or friends)." [Declared authentic by Al-Albani]


‹‹ أبر البر أن يصل الرجل ود أهل أبيه››
صحيح الألباني

Remarks concerning celebrating what is called (mother day):

The mother day celebration in western countries was made to compensate the parents for their son's disobedience, alienation and ingratitude, but Almighty Allah has saved our sons from these bad ethics, so we should praise Allah who has honored us with the religion of Islam which makes saying to parents a word of disrespect, is a prohibited disobedience.

This tradition is welcomed only by those people who have a relation of disobedience and alienation with their parents like that of western societies and they also are away of Allah's shariah (legislation).

Although the western societies aim of celebrating the mother day was to remove disobedience for parents and make mothers happier, one hundred years of celebrating neither increased sons' obedience nor gave mothers more happiness.

Warning: in view of the forgoing facts which affirm the failure of mother day celebration to remove disobedience and severance to parents, now we are asking, why do they still call to celebrate it? ……there is no power and no strength save in Allah……

The permanent committee Fatwa concerning mother's day celebration:

It is not permissible to celebrate what is called mother's day or the like innovated days because the prophet (peace be upon him) said "whoever makes a deed which is not included in our religion, it will not be accepted from him.”. [Narrated by Muslim]



‹‹من عمل عملا ليس عليه أمرنا فهو رد››
رواه مسلم

This celebration of mother day is not among the deeds of the prophet, his companions or our righteous ancestors, but it is an innovation and imitation for the disbelievers.


It is prohibited to buy or sell flowers, cards, gifts or other things with the intention of celebration with this bad habit.

A call:

We ask the fathers, mothers, teachers, mosques’ preachers and the officials of mass media to warn against this innovated celebration and also promoting the conception of obedience to parents as we were ordered by Almighty Allah and His messenger (peace be upon him) .


Every Muslim should make good use of the chance of his parents life to acquire their satisfaction, but whoever neglected his parents' rights during their life and then repented to Allah after their death, Almighty Allah will accept his repentance. Also those neglectful sons can be dutiful to their parents after their death by paying charity or doing righteous deeds on behalf of them, but we should know that obedience to parents during their life is better and has a greater reward, so we should be aware.

Finally, we should learn the following lesson:

One day a son was hitting his father in the market and when the people tried to prevent him, the father said to them "let him hits me as I was hitting my father the same". So you should be aware because your sons will treat you with the same way you treated your parents. When you saw an obedient son, give him glad tidings that his sons will obey him.

We invoke Almighty Allah to make us of those who obey their parents.

And peace be upon you all……..
