In Islam, mothers are regarded highly. This is because they are regarded as a gift from Allah and a blessing to every child. The first word a baby says from the mouth is mother and it is said loud and clear no matter what is happening in its life. However, mother’s day in Islam does not have any importance because it shows the activities of kuffar.
A mother is loved unconditionally by her child, and she does not complain about her appearance or behavior. She also sacrifices everything for her child. It is the responsibility of the children to be kind to their parents when they grow up.
Muslims are expected to be kind, gentle, and obedient to their parents. They should treat them with respect, and they should obey Allah only if it is forbidden. At the age of old, they should be looked after and given priority in all conditions.
What the Quran Says about Mother?
Islam gives children the highest possible position and authority to be kind, respectful, and obedient to their mothers. This is very important in a religion that values the rights of mothers. There are several verses of the Holy Quran that shows the importance of mothers, such as:
The Surah Luqman States, “We have commanded people to be good to their parents: their mothers carried them, with strain upon strain, and it takes two years to wean them. Give thanks to Me and to your parents — all will return to Me” (31:14).
The word “strain” in the surah specifically discusses the mother’s challenges, such as feeling weak, discouraged, and worn down.

Why Are Mothers Important in Islam?
According to the Holy Prophet, Muslims should marry women according to their moral characteristics. He also said that having virtuous children is very important and that those who only look for beauty or wealth are not worthy of being married.
Respect in This World
A mother is regarded with great respect by her family. According to the Qur’an and the Holy Prophet, the rights of parents are included in their duties. However, the Holy Prophet also said that goodness should be shown to the mother before the father.
The son of the Prophet was asked to do good to his mother several times. The Prophet then told him to do the same for his father. This is a well-known story in Islam.
Respect in the Hereafter
According to the sayings of our Holy Prophet (PBUH), Jannat lies beneath the feet of mothers. A woman asked the Holy Prophet why it was not obligatory for women to join jihad. She was afraid that they would not be able to achieve the great reward for those who died in the cause of Allah.
The Prophet explained that a woman is a fighter in Allah’s way when she becomes pregnant and breast-feeding until she stops. If she dies during that period, she would be regarded as a martyr. Raising a virtuous child is regarded as one of the greatest deeds a person can do. Even after death, the reward for doing good still remains.
How Do Muslims Celebrate Mother’s Day?
Although Mother’s day is celebrated in many countries, including some Muslim nations, it should not be considered a holiday that is deemed to be permissible.
If your mother is not Muslim, but is accustomed to celebrating this holiday in her honor, what if you suddenly stop observing other non-Islamic holidays and would like to stop honoring her? Many Muslim parents feel that their mothers would feel insulted and resent if they stopped honoring them.
Observing Mother’s Day is an innovation that the Prophet and his companions did not do, as it is an imitation of the kuffar. It is prohibited to celebrate it or to obey your mother in any manner, as the prophet said that there is no such thing as obedience if it involves sin. According to al-Bukhaari, the only thing that is proper in obedience is in that it is in accordance with the law.
The obligation to honor and respect a mother is one that is granted by the law, and it should not be a point to celebrate a particular day in her life. Instead, let her know how special she is and that you can’t single out a day in her life that you would like to honor her. Explain to her what a mother means in Islam, and tell her that you will always remember her every day of your life. If you don’t celebrate her day, she might feel resented or hurt, and she may feel like she has been unjustly treated.
Even though it’s not always possible to honor one’s mother, it is still important to remember her and offer a funeral prayer. Doing so allows one to carry out her last wishes and honor her friends and family. This religion has a lot of rules and etiquettes that we should follow.
