Book 2: 

RESPECT FOR PARENTS THE ISLAMIC OUTLOOK 

  THE DISTINCTION OF THE MOTHER ......

         The Apostle of Allah said: 'Paradise is under the feet of the mother. "

        Imam Zaynul Abidin said: "You should be aware that your mother bore your burden in her belly, and no one else would bear that burden. She fed you on the fruit of her heart when no one else would give it to you. She protected you at a1l times. She forgot her own hunger so you could be well-fed. She forgot her own thirst so you could slake your thirst. She gave you the best of clothes.

        She provided for you shade from the hot sun. She protected you from the heat of summer and the cold of winter, She deprived herself of rest and sleep at nights to make you comfortable. Surely, you cannot give adequate thanks to your mother for all her sacrifices for you except through the grace and mercy of Allah."
