Honoring my mother…………

Star Jasmine: subtle in fragrance, delicate in appearance and survives the tribulations of climbing on uncertain edifices…….a lot like my mother, may Allah grant her Jannat ul Firdous e Aalaa!

I remember her everyday, but for today I am extremely grateful to Allah Subhanawataala that he brought her into this world, and she left it in a much better state than what she found it on the entrance to this world.

One of the methods of honoring your parent after death among other things is to become a righteous child……..so in my attempt to be on the path of the righteous I am studying the tafseer of the Quran and in it Allah Subhanawataala speaks of the amazing place of Honor called……….”Muqaam e Mahmudah”

Thus her name take from the words of the Quran in an attempt to reach the highest level of ebadah……..and the path to intercession:

وَمِنَ ٱلَّيۡلِ فَتَهَجَّدۡ بِهِۦ نَافِلَةً۬ لَّكَ عَسَىٰٓ أَن يَبۡعَثَكَ رَبُّكَ مَقَامً۬ا مَّحۡمُودً۬ا (٧٩)

And some part of the night awake for it, a largess for thee. It may be that thy Lord will raise thee to a praised estate. (Surah Al Isra: ayah 79)

SUPPLICATION: May Allah bless all those mothers whose children are struggling to be on the path of the righteous moving to the nearness of Allah wanting to become one of the Muqarraboon.

Surah Al Isra: ayah 78-85 listen carefully to the recitation for the instructions given by Allah……

…..In the same surah Allah commands children to honor their parents:
