In Praise of Mothers

Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in times to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her at the city gates.

Proverbs 31:10, 25-31

    And Happy Mothers’ Day to all mothers out there. No words I can express to the limits they push to give their very best for the children they bear!

    Thank You :) As a mother to 3, that was a beautiful reminder as to what is important and how blessed I am to be a mother to them. Touching, and I so much hope to live up to that description of a mother. Your choice of words is always so perfect and inspiring and I am so grateful for them.

    Salam alaikum,

    Thank you for sharing this brother Irving. Here’s what I have to share about mothers:

    “Sisters eyes may dry, your wife may find solace in another’s arms, but your mother will weep for you till she dies.” –Arabic Proverb

    Happy mother’s day to all mothers!

    In Islam we do sajda on mother earth and also in Shi’ite followings of the prayer, it is cosidered as rewardable action to kiss the earth which is symbol of kissing hand of mother. There is one ultimate feminine truth, the most sacred, the root of wisdom, Sophia, Maria, Fatima, Parvati, Esfand, Ramzbar, Xianshe Gu and its nearest manifestations to us, of course, are mothers.
