Special dedication to my lovely mom…


BEFORE THAT…just wanna share with everyone something about mother’s day…

The modern Mother's Day holiday was created by Anna Jarvis as a day for each family to honor their mother, and it's now celebrated on various days in many places around the world. It complements Father’s day, the celebration honoring fathers.

This holiday is relatively modern, being created at the start of the 20th century, and should not be confused with the early pagan and Christian traditions honoring mothers, or with the 16th century celebration of Mothering Sunday, which is also known as Mother's Day in the UK.

In most countries the Mother's Day celebration is a recent holiday derived from the original US celebration. Exceptions are, for example, the Mothering Sunday holiday in the UK.

It is celebrated in the United States each year on the second Sunday of May.

Historical antecedents (personally, I think this is one of the reasons why people say we ‘muslim’ can’t celebrate mother’s day…)

Different countries celebrate Mother's Day on various days of the year because the day has a number of different origins.

One school of thought claims this day emerged from a custom of mother worship in ancient Greece, which kept a festival to Cybele, a great mother of Greek gods. This festival was held around the Vernal Equinox around Asia Minor and eventually in Rome itself from the Ides of March (15 March) to 18 March.

The ancient Romans also had another holiday, Matronalia, that was dedicated to Juno (Juno was an ancient Roman goddess, the protector and special counselor of the state. She is a daughter of Saturn (Saturn was a major Roman god of agriculture and harvest) and sister (but also the wife) of the chief god Jupiter and the mother of Juventas, Mars, and Vulcan. Her Greek equivalent is Hera.), though mothers were usually given gifts on this day.

(directly quote from wikipedia...those who want to know more..can do their own reading or do Google search..hiii)

So..macam mana ni nak celebrate ka tak mau??? Ermmm…

Daripada Amirul Mukminin Abu Hafsin ‘Umar ibn al-Katthab r.a. beliau berkata: Aku mendengar Rasulullah SAW bersabda:

“Bahawa sesungguhnya setiap amalan itu bergantung kepada niat, dan bahawa sesungguhnya bagi setiap orang apa yang dia niatkan. Barangsiapa yang hijrahnya menuju kepada Allah dan RasulNya, maka hijrahnya kepada Allah dan RasulNya. Barangsiapa yang hijrahnya kerana dunia yang dia mahu mencari habuannya, atau kerana seorang perempuan yang dia mahu kahwininya, maka hijrahnya ke arah perkara yang ditujuinya itu.”

Some people will simply quote this hadith and say “there is nothing wrong to celebrate it but it depends on the intention why we are doing this and this…”

Me?? I really don’t know the right answer for this…may be we can share our personal opinion in here =)

BUT… in my opinion, there is nothing wrong with that…to celebrate mother’s day…to celebrate our lovely ‘mama...mak...ibu...ummi’…or whatever u call this special person is…OUR busy daily life…of course we don’t have time to make she feels special everyday…also if celebrate hari2 dah bunyi tak special pulak…so we can choose one day...it can be any day that u want it to be…tapi kan…bila mother’s day…ada banyak discount (oopps!! sounds like tak ikhlas) no what I mean is…we are human being...mudah lupa…so we can use this as an opportunity…

Tak salah kan untuk bahagiakan orang yang dah banyak berkorban untuk kita sejak kita dalam perut dia lagi…believe me…its not only morning sickness which the visible sign of a pregnancy that we all know…its more than that…she’s experienced a lot of things that we can’t see … The body must change its physiological and homeostatic mechanisms in pregnancy to ensure the fetus is provided for. Increases in blood sugar, breathing and cardiac output are all required (Hormonal changes, Musculoskeletal changes, Physical changes Cardiovascular changes, Respiratory changes, Metabolic changes and Renal changes). Do we ever thing about this? Semua nutrient yang terbaik dari apa yang di makan ‘all for us’…she have higher risk to get diabetes, anemic etc…itu baru 9 bulan 10 hari…how about during the delivery?? (kalau undergo a cesarean might be

worse)…Berperang antara hidup atau mati…

During the time immediately after birth, both the mother and the baby are hormonally cued to bond, the mother through the release of oxytocin, a hormone also released during breastfeeding. Tahu tak oxytocin tu apa?

Oxytocin is a mammalian hormone that also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain.

Neurotransmitters are chemicals which relay, amplify and modulate signals between a neuron and another cell.

[maksudnya kat sini..maklumat yang disampaikan ke otak akan terganggu..thats why we see benda pelik2 masa ibu pregnant, give birth even breast feed…ITS ALL BECAUSE OF U…bukan dia nak mintak benda pelik2 turn out to her but that’s what happen biologically…]

Ada lagi…itu baru sikit…but I’m not going to ‘bebel’ banyak sangat…cut in short…

NEXT…membesar dengan nakal nya…degil…suruh tu tak buat…suruh belajaq panjat pokok =P mintak tu mintak ni…nak tu nak ni…sakit demam…mintak duit sampai sekarang…

Bila kita nak bayar balik semua hutang2 dengan dia….hutang yang tak kan penah langsai…

I’m really sure…this is what they expect from us…

"Apabila mati seseorang, akan terputus amalannya kecuali tiga perkara: sedekah jariah, ilmu yang dimanfaatkan dan anak yang soleh yang mendoakan untuknya"

Jadilah anak soleh yang sentiasa mendoakan kesejahteraan mereka dunia dan akhirat…

Jagalah hati mereka selagi mereka masih ada…

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A person came to Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and asked, "Who among people is most deserving of my fine treatment?'' He (PBUH) said, "Your mother". He again asked, ``Who next?'' "Your mother", the Prophet (PBUH) replied again. He asked, "Who next?'' He (the Prophet (PBUH)) said again, "Your mother.'' He again asked, "Then who?'' Thereupon he (PBUH) said,'' Then your father.''

In another narration: "O Messenger of Allah! Who is most deserving of my fine treatment?'' He (PBUH) said, "Your
mother, then your mother, then your mother, then your father, then your nearest, then nearest".
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

Commentary: This Hadith tells us that the rights of the mother are three times more important than that of the father for the reasons that:

1 She is weaker than the father.

2. The following three troubles are borne exclusively by the mother while the father does not share them with her:

a) She carries the baby in her womb for nine months,

b) The labor pain which she suffers.

c) Two years' period of suckling which disturbs her sleep at night and affects her health. She has also to be very cautious in her food for the welfare of the baby.

Saya tak mengarut with all scientific things I said before cause Muhammad s.a.w. told us earlier before we got all the scientific proven…

So…make ur mom happy…never hurt her…boleh beli kan hadiah or belanja makan sempena mother’s day ni…or untuk yang jauh especially yang diperantauan can call ur mom and wish her tomorrow and post a lovely card to her =)
