The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said: “Your Heaven lies under the feet of your mother” (Ahmad, Nasai)
Learn about the importance of our mothers in Islam through heartwarming talks by Nabiilabee, Ustadha Ameena Blake, Ustadha Sumayya-Maryam and Aysha Iqbal, as well as inspiring spoken word poetry by Hafsa Rehman and beautiful Quran recitation by Husna Wahid.
"Worship God and join not any partners with Him; and be kind to your parents..." [Noble Quran 4:36]
The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the status of our mothers and honour them, a date between a mother and their child, a sister with her sister in a friendly, entertaining and loving atmosphere for a noble cause. This cause is something that we will all cherish and remember as being part of it - building a masjid in Sudan as Sadaqah Jariyah for my beloved mother who has been severely unwell and underwent a major operation. A masjid is a place of worship, contemplation, learning about Islam and nurturing the young and the old with their spiritual, moral and social development. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said:
“Whoever builds a mosque for the sake of Allah, like a sparrow’s nest or even smaller, Allah will build for him a house in Paradise" (Sahih)
