A poor couple lived in a small village in India. They had only one son. They gave him the best education. Son graduated as an Engineer in the nearby city. Eventually he got married to a rich girl. Initially, they lived with his parents in the village. Soon the wife got tired of village life and persuaded the husband to move to the city leaving the old parents in the village. As time went the husband saw an ad in the newspaper about a vacancy in Jeddah. He was successful and lived in Jeddah for years with his wife. Regularly he used to send money to parents. Eventually with time he stopped and forgot about his parents whether they ever existed. Every year he performed hajj and immediately after each hajj, he used to see someone telling him in a dream that his hajj is not accepted. One day he related this story to a pious Aalim who advised him to go back to India to visit his parents. The man flew to India and reached the boundary of the village. Everything had changed. He could not find his house. He asked a small boy about the whereabouts of so and so. The little boy directed the man to a house and said : "In this house lives an old blind lady who lost her husband a few months ago. She has a son who migrated to Saudi Arabia years back and never came back again. What an unfortunate man?" Son enters the home and finds his mother on the bed. He tip-toed as he did not want to wake her up. He hears the mother whispering or mumbling something. He gets closer to hear her voice. This is what the mother was saying: "Ya Allah! I am now very old and blind. My husband just died. There is no mahram to lower me in my grave when I die. So please send my son to fullfill my last wish. " This is the ending of a story where the DUA of a mother is accepted. A human body can bear only 45 del (units) of pain. But at the time of giving birth, a mother feels upto 57 del (units) of pain... This is similar to 20 bones getting fractured, all at the same time!! This is just to tell you the extent to which a mother loves her child! 'Love your mom till the end of your life.The lady with whom you fight almost everyday, suffered so much pain just to give you a beautiful life!
