Touching Story

In the name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Most Gracious

 I read one of the most touching story and would like to share with you all

A Story:

My mother had only one eye,

I hated her as I was ashamed of her


She was a cook in the school cafeteria where I studied.

 One day, when I was still in a primary class,

She came to visit me to see for herself that I was all right.


I was very upset, how dare she do this to me?


After that incident I ignored her & looked on her

Only with hateful eyes….


The next day, a fellow-student told me,

“oohhh, your mother has only one eye!”


At that moment, I wanted to crawl  under the floor

And that my mother would be out of my life completely.


The next day I went to meet her & to tell her:

” because of you I am the joke at school,

Why don’t you die and go away!?


But, she did not respond….


I wasn’t thinking and did not know what I was saying,

I was very angry.


I could not imagine

How she would react to my remarks.


And, I left town.

I studied relentlessly and obtained a scholarship

to continue my studies abroad.


In fact, I completed my studies, got married, bought a house and set up my family.

I lived a happy and a peaceful life.


One day, my mother comes to visit me.

It has been many years since she had disappeared,

She had never met her grand-children.


She remained at the doorstep

While my children were making fun of her


I shouted at her: ” How dare you come all the way here and frighten my kids?!


With a calm voice she responded:

“I apologize, I am at the wrong address.”

And she disappeared.

One day, I received an invitation from my hometown school to attend a reunion under the ” close family ties ” topic


I lied to my wife and made her believe that

I was traveling for business.


After the reunion I stopped by the house

where I grew up


The neighbours informed me that

my mother had passed away.


I did not shed even one drop of tear!!!


The neighbor handed me a letter

 that my mother had left for me


“My Dear son, I always thought of you.”


I regret having visited you abroad

And frightened your kids


…I was very pleased when I heard that

 you would come to attend the reunion


…The only thing was that I could not get up

from my bed to come and see you….


… I am broken-hearted that I brought

shame to you on numerous occasions…


Did you know that when you were a baby

 you had an accident and lost your one eye?…


… and, as any other mother would,

I would not let you grow up with only one eye….


So. I gave you my eye……..


I was very proud and happy to know that my son would be able to see the world with my eye


… with all my love…


…Your mother….


The Last and final Messenger of Allah swt, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him said.

“It is one of the greatest sins that a man should curse his parents.”

(Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 8.4 Narrated by Abdullah bin Amr)



Allah swt says: Your Lord has enjoined the following: You should not worship anyone but Him Alone!  Treat your parents with great kindness;  if either or both of them attain old age, do not even say ‘uff’ to them;  nor rebuke them;  but speak to them kind words.  Treat them with humility and tenderness and pray, “O our Lord,  be merciful to them, just as they brought me up with kindness and affection in my childhood.”

Holy Quran Chapter 17 Surah Bani Israel verses 23-24

    Aww, this is so touching. I’m crying from the inside, but also upset on why the mother didn’t let her son know about this earlier. It was something else if she didn’t want to disclose this secret at all. But in the end, she told her son eventually. Had she disclosed this secret earlier, both mother and son could have a better relationship.

    ~ I do agee with your opinion, things might have been different if she would have told her son earlier.

    SubhanAllah, the first time I heard this story, we were at a play for mothers and daughters in Syria, and they played it as an intro. It was in movie format though, and in Arabic fos-ha, but the message still went across clear.
    For the sake of the man in the story, I pray it’s not true. But at the same time, I’m glad it’s circulating. It provides a vivid reminder to the rest of us on a very important matter we often overlook.

    Thanks for sharing!


    ~May Allah bless our parents and make us realize their status in our life and hereafter..Aameen. Thanks for stopping by and Welcome to my blog, sis.

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
