Mothers [Surah Fatiha]
Mothers [Surah Fatiha]
The Story: Inspired by the story of Owais Al Qarni, a man who cared for his mother and became one of the people of paradise. This man sacrificed the status of a Sahabi. A Sahabah is a companion or even someone who saw the Prophet PBUH and believed in him (and died a Muslim). When Owais had the opportunity to migrate and meet the Prophet PBUH, he turned it down because he had to take care of his mother. He had devoted his life to his mother and didn’t want to leave her behind. The Prophet PBUH said to the companions, “This man is unknown among the people but known in the skies… When he makes dua, it is granted. On the day of judgement, he will be allowed to bring 200,000 people with him into paradise... Ali and Umar, if you are ever to find this man, ask him to make dua for you and ask Allah for your forgiveness".
Two most important lessons from this story: value of a mother in Islam and the reward of sacrificing something for Allah swt. Surah Al-Fatiha adorns this painting because it’s the mother of the Qur’an. The patterns above the Surah depict mother birds -as they symbolize motherhood: love, nourishment and protection. The bottom of the painting symbolizes the endless tears and sleepless nights endured by a mother.
A companion once asked whom he should befriend. “Your mother”, replied the Prophet PBUH.
