Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah. My brothers and sisters, I wanted to share something that happened with me personally. Not too long ago, I went to visit a friend of mine whose mother was dying of cancer. She had been battling cancer for about five years. And news came to me that she was on her last days.
So I went to visit the brother. And as I sat down with him, he was explaining to me that his mother is going through that state of sacral, mouth conscious and unconscious and, and that the cancer was really starting to spread all over.
So as I sat with this friend of mine, and we were talking, his eyes teed up,
so naturally, I mean, I assume that because his mother's dying, and so I tried to comfort him. And I said to him, Look, you know, this is natural in life. And he said, No, I'm not crying because she's leaving. And of course, I am upset. But that's not why I'm crying.
I said, Why are you upset?
He said, I'm upset.
Because all my life.
I've never thanked my mother for what she's done.
And honestly, I can't explain what happened to me when he said these words.
He said all my life, I've never once in my life said thank you to my mom.
He said, and now that she's sitting in the next room, and she's alive,
but she's conscious and unconscious. And even if I spoke to her, she's not going to be able to understand or comprehend the words that I'm saying.
And when my my brothers and sisters, this really affected me,
that all his life, you know, all of our lives, for those of us who are fortunate enough that the mothers are still around, you know,
my mum has been there all my life never failed me once. never failed me once. And never once have I ever come to them
and just said, Thank you.
And not one of those failures with some flowers. And that's a good Thank you. But there's really deep thinkers. You know that thank you that if she left me now.
I've told her
and I thanked her from the depths of my heart.
Why my brothers and sisters I you know, I haven't?
I haven't been able to forget this. That when was the last time we think your mother?
When was the last time you showed your mother genuine appreciation for everything that she's ever done?
Or are we gonna be like those? Or are we going to be of those who when our mothers leave us permanently, then we will sit back and remember and start to regret that I didn't take advantage of the opportunity when I had
you know, my brothers in many places around the world by celebrate distinct called Mother's Day.
And it breaks my heart because in Islam, in truth, Mother's Day is everyday. We don't single out one day of the year to say our Mom, look, I remembered you today, but rather we ordered by Allah and His Prophet more or less, to remember our mothers on a daily basis. And men came to the Prophet of Allah and he system, our Prophet of Allah and many of us get this hadith wrong. He says, a prophet of Allah who is most deserving of my kind treatment.
He says to your mother, says, then whom said to your mother, then whom said to your mother, he said, then whom he said, then your father,
many of us we interpret this to be love, that my mother is most deserving of my love. Know, the person that is most deserving of your current treatment of your money, of your health, of your, of everything that you possess, the person that is most deserving of this more than anyone, above all, is your mother, then your mother, then your mother, and then your father. My brothers and sisters, in short, many of us we still have our mothers on my head, do not be of the losers who wait into our mothers leave us permanently, only then to wish and to regret and say, you know, I wish I can go back and fake my mother. If your mother is still around, you know, run by a law run to her and
thankful for everything that she's done. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us of those who have the best relationship with their mothers. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give them
