Elderly mothers should be well looked after

Lets start with the words of the writer Humayan Ahmed Mother is the only bank in the world where we deposit all our sorrows and hardships and take return without interestis genuine love. All the love in the world involves some interest. Artifice is mixed. But a mothers love is a love in which there is no room for selfishness, artificiality or acting. When the child returns home from outside, the wife, son or any other dear relatives have a watchful eye to see if he has the necessary thing in his hand or what is for them or what Kind gifts brought towards them.

But the mother keeps an eye on the childs face, whether her beloved child has eaten properly. How dry the face feels. There is only one person in the world who is completely satisfied with the well-being of his child. A mother is the source of fulfilling whatever a child asks for with a smile. 117 years ago in 1907 and 1914 International Mothers Day has been celebrated on the 2nd Sunday of May. Respect to that Anne and her daughter from West Virginia in America. Those who pray to all the people of the world on this day to keep them immersed in love.

In all religions, mother is called as blessing. Mother is the name of the smallest but longest and deepest feeling. Hajj is one of the pillars of Islam, the holy religion of Muslims. Currently, the season of going to the holy Hajj is going on. One has to spend a lot of money and do a lot of hard work and follow all the rules to perform the holy Hajj. But no one can guarantee Hajj-e-Mabrur. In other words, only Allah knows best whether his Hajj will be accepted or not. But it is described in Bayhaqi-Mishkat Shareef "When a loyal child looks at his parents with a look of grace, Allah Taala gives him the reward of one accepted Hajj for each look".

Mother is such a blessed blessing. It is said in Hadith Qudsi. Childrens heaven under mothers feet. We clearly mean an inseparable connection between the mothers body and the child, which is never to be broken. Thats why it is said that if any misfortune happens to a child in a distant land, the first person who gets hurt is the mother.

The mother is the one who wants the childs well-being even at the cost of her own life. Rich and poor, educated and uneducated, owners and workers, all mothers have the same feeling and that is extreme tenderness, love and compassion. When the child is sick, the mother is the person who is eager and anxious for the overall health of the child.The mothers crazy heart is adorable only for the well-being of the child. When the mother holds the child in her womb, the childs body is supplied with food and nutrients from the mothers body through the placenta, the feeling of love and compassion.

How can a mother bear the slightest loss of a child trapped in such a web of delusion? After the birth of the child, the mother feels that the creator has given her the most sacred blessing of her love. After getting precious wealth, mother is very active in protecting that wealth. In any way, in exchange for anything, the mother does not want to give up this precious resource. In return for all the sacrifices and hardships, the mother builds up the wealth of her chest. A hundred crimes are tolerated by the mother with a smile. So black and fair, short and tall, lame, dumb, blind child is not disliked by his mother. No child is ugly to its mother. As the child grows up, the mothers apprehension also increases. Thinking about whether you can raise your child properly. Because the only prayer of the mothers heart is that my child should live in milk and rice.

Mothers accept all sacrifices looking at the faces of their children and grandchildren. If the current situation of these great human beings is observed, then it is really sad and undesirable. At present, in the name of modernity, the ruthlessness and cruelty of beloved children against their parents is heartbreaking and inhumane. Elderly mothers especially those over 60 years of age. Among them, those who are widows, there is no limit to their sufferings.

These mothers are plagued with various physical problems. Diabetics, heart disease, kidney disease, bone disease etc. are suffering from complex diseases and are spending their lives in extreme suffering. On him is the burning flame of lust for the wealth of children. I don know why we don feel bad about beating a compassionate mother to take possession of it by torturing an old sick mother due to lack of wealth.Honorable Prime Minister introduced old age and widow allowance. We are all working together to achieve the set goals of SDG. Therefore, we have no choice but to reconcile our own humanity with the government of Bangladesh to bring them back to a healthy life by determining the past statistics of these disadvantaged mothers across the country.

Research has shown that when people reach the age of 70, many of their organs do not function properly. Their feelings become like children. In such cases, they should be treated exactly as they expect to be treated. That is why Allah says, And your creator has commanded that you worship none but Him, and be kind to your parents. If one or both of them reach old age with you, do not utter the word Uh to them and do not reprimand them. You talk to them softly. And bow down to them in compassion and say, O my Allah! Be kind to them as they brought me up with kindness in childhood.

A mothers prayer is a prayer of acceptance for a child. Someone elses prayer may or may not be accepted. But the mothers prayer for the child is definitely accepted. Therefore, the more blessings I can receive from this source of blessings, the more blessings I will get in this world and in the hereafter. And if any word of suffering is uttered in the realm of magic, it will take no time to reach the brink of certain destruction. This child will be the parents in the future. So lets serve those who this great man is alive and try to achieve eternal success by accepting himself as the beloved of Allah and Rasool like Hazrat Wayesh Karni (RA).
