Among the parents, the status of the mother is three times higher than that of the father. Quran says :
“In travail upon travail did his mother bear him, and in years twain was his weaning.” (31 :14)
The prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) greatly stressed mothers’ rights by saying
"Heaven is beneath the feet of mothers"
Today Britain celebrates Mother's Day, here in the UK mother's day always falls on a Sunday so the date varies from one year to the other, unlike Libya and I think all of the Arab world that celebrates it on 21 March.
It is a chance for people to show their appreciation and love to their mothers although I believe every day should be a mother's day.
Happy Mother's Day to all British mothers and mothers all over the world
