Oh Mothers of Today

Oh Mothers of Today!‎

In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful. 

"And We have enjoined on man to be dutiful and kind to his parents. His mother bears him with hardship. And she brings him forth with hardship...." Q46:15

"The mothers shall give suck to their children for two whole years, (that is) for those (parents) who desire to complete the term of suckling" Q2:233
A mother is obliged to look after, breastfeed and nurture her child and this is inherent in all mammals from the beginning of creation.

We live in an era where most of the mothers of today deny their children the motherly bond that nurtures them to become adults with a natural disposition to love, care, respect and honor their mothers.

Today's mothers will prefer to express their motherly milk in a bottle for their children than to breastfeed them because of other commitments. 

The greatest bond between any two persons is that of a nursing mother and her child.

What a generation and what a sway from the natural instinct that mothers of today express and store their milk.‎

Today's mothers will prefer to leave their children at the mercy of the housemaids rather than carrying the baby themselves even when they are at home and this deactivates the natural bond between a mother and her child that comes as a result of their bodily contacts.

Today's mothers are more possessive over their handbags than they are over their children. They can afford to leave their child in the hands of a housemaid and would not contemplate leaving their handbags with the same housemaid.

The child being exposed to the bond of various housemaids regularly substituted before attaining adolescence grows up with a confused personality not knowing who to real bond with leaving their mothers hanging showing little or no regards for them as mothers.

When the innocent child is crying desperate for motherly attention, most at times the mother responds through proxy by asking the housemaid to pamper the innocent crying child. 

Naturally, the baby will stop crying but alas! A great percentage of motherly bond and sentiment is lost causing a natural detachment between the child and the mother.

Yet, we are faced with another monster that nurtures and shapes the mindset of the children and that's the Internet and the television programs and TV games. 

The media is taking over the life of the children and they follow the media more than they follow their mothers. They simply suffer from "media saturation".‎

The M2 generation!  ‎

A survey suggested that that children between the ages of 8-18 spend nearly 7 1/2 hours a day on the screen.

We call upon the mothers of today to cherish their motherhood.
The best thing you can do to your child is to love the child nay to bond with the child in his formative years spending more time with the innocent defenseless child and giving the child adequate attention needed.

The absence of these breed innocent children into becoming monsters to hunt their parents giving their mothers heart attacks with little or no regards for their parents.

A society that devalues homemaking will surely loose its homemakers.

Save a child today.‎
