A month had passed, again.  And as I was thinking of a post, I received a text message from my Mom.  Aishah, where are you, how are you, have you had dinner?  Mak and Bapak are at the mosque reading the Qur'an after Maghrib prayer while waiting for the Isyak prayer.

My mother texts me often (almost all the time).  How are you, where are you. LuvU3.  Sometimes I feel my Mom would be a great iphone ambassador.

Thinking of my mother, I would like to share, just one verse tonight.  Luqman 31:14.

"And We have enjoined on man kindness to his parents: his mother bore him in weakness and hardship upon weakness and hardship, and his weaning is within two years; be grateful to Me, and to your parents, (and remember that) with Me is all journeys' end."


  1. What a sweet mother! Now that I am a mother myself, I can totally relate to how they always wish the best for their children and how much they love their children.

  2. Aslmkm Aishah.
    Allah SWT made it so pretty clear - it is a duty to shower our parents with love, kindness & understanding.
    Almost always the parents only want the best for their children.

  3. what Mom had shown, we should have reciprocated far better. At times, the text should read "Mom, how are you?"...

  4. Thank you Mama Mia. And waalaikumusalam Dr Fauziah.

    Bangchik, your comment almost brought tear to my eyes. I had almost never initiated a text message to my Mom. I will change that. Thank you Bangchik.

  5. Lovely mum you have. I miss mine so much. She was here over the summer. I'm impressed by your mum's dexterity at textspeak. :-)

    Greetings from London.

  6. a rich verse to hear.
    i love the photo, with the lantern and fronds and what looks like a darkening sky.
    loveu3 is very cute:)

  7. Text message between mak dan anak. That was never heard of during my days - only telegram messages; then you wonder what on earth these are!
