There are various metrics for measurement. I want the one which can measure my mother’s love and affection. Is it possible to invent that instrument? No. Not at all. Mother’s affection and love is the unique one which is immeasurable. These are some lines which I wrote for my mother, so that we come to know that what is actually mother and what is her affection and love.
Allah has bestowed us with various beautiful gifts but in my opinion , mother is the greatest and blessed one.
A mother is the female parent of a child .First mother is a woman who performs the role of bearing its young ones. The word woman can be used gently to mean any female or especially, to mean an adult female human as contrasted with girl.
A mother is a selfless, loving human who sacrifices many of her wants and needs for the wants and needs of their children. A mother works hard to make sure her child is equipped with the knowledge, skills, guts discipline and abilities to make it as a competent human being in future. A mother loves her child with all her heart. The first shelter to young one is mother’s womb for about nine months. A mother goes through a lot over this period of nine months but never claims in any way, not to mention a lifetime of worries and challenges as a mother.
There are ups and downs during pregnancy where a mother must stay strong to usher a new life into this world. We must know that a human body can bear only up to 45del ( units) of pain yet, at the time of giving birth to child, in other words at the time of first journey of a new life into this world, a mother feels up to 57 del of pain. This is similar to 20 bones getting fractured at the same time, but the mother never claims in her own journey of life in front of anyone. In our holy Quran: Allah (SWT) states, “ Do not even show fatigue in front of your parents”
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before but as a woman. Motherhood is something absolutely new. The mother only understands her child when no one understands him or her. Mother also understands the signs and actions of her child. She Mother is one of the great and blessed gift to mankind from God.
A mother motivates her child for his or her future plans and teaches her child to have confidence and belief in himself or herself in every hardship and in any drastic turn in life.
When God fashioned Adam (PBUH) from clay and placed him in paradise. Subsequently, Eve was created from one of Adam’s ribs to be his companion and helper. Adam named the woman Eve, which means “life” referring to her role in the procreation of human race. The moment a child is born, it weeps at that time but the
mother smiles. However, in the journey of life onwards when the child weeps mother also weeps; this is what we call mother. I love my mother and I call her “my mom” “Myeaen Mauj”. I conclude with a proverb,”God couldn’t be everywhere, so therefore He made mothers.
I wrote these lines for my mother to admit my infinite love I have for her in my heart for her and I pray to God it remains forever and increases by the day!
