HISTORY OF MOTHER’S DAY
Mother’s Day is not a traditional holiday in Islam, but the respect and honor for mothers in Islamic culture and traditions are well-established.
In Islam, honoring one’s mother is considered one of the greatest acts of worship and an essential part of living a righteous and pious life. Muslims are taught to treat their mothers with kindness, respect, and love, regardless of their faith, ethnicity, or social status.
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has emphasized the importance of mothers and their position in Islam, saying, “Paradise lies under the feet of the mother” (Sunan an-Nasa’i 3104). This Hadith indicates that one of the most valuable ways to earn Allah’s reward and blessings is to serve, respect, and honor one’s mother.
While no specific holiday is dedicated to mothers in Islam, many Muslims worldwide take advantage of cultural holidays and occasions to show appreciation and love for their mothers, such as International Women’s Day.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) also taught his followers to speak to their mothers kindly and respectfully and always to obey and honor them. He said, “Allah has forbidden Paradise to those who are disobedient to their parents” (Sahih Bukhari 3046).
Furthermore, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) demonstrated great respect and kindness towards his mother, Aminah bint Wahb. He often visited her grave, prayed for her, and asked his companions to do the same.
Mothers Day is a day to celebrate and honor mothers, grandmothers, and other maternal figures in our lives. It is a day to show gratitude for their love, sacrifices, and hard work raising and nurturing us.
