Assalamu Alaikum:

One day a man came to see the Prophet Muhammad, peace and
blessings be upon him. It seemed that he was trying to solve
something but couldn''t quite work it out. So he asked the Prophet. ''Tell
me, O Prophet!'' I have many relatives and many friends whom I love,
and whom I wish to care for and help. But I often find it difficult to
decide which of them has the greatest claim upon me? Which of them
should come first?'' The Prophet replied immediately, ''Your mother
should come first and before all others.''

The man was very pleased to have this clear guidance from the
Prophet. But of course there were all his other relatives and his friends,
so he asked ''and after my mother, who has the greatest claim upon
me?'' The Prophet''s reply this second time surprised him. ''Your mother!''
he said again.

The man wondered why was the Prophet repeating himself? Perhaps he
had not spoken clearly, the man thought, so he asked the question
again, ''What I want to know is, after my mother, who has the greatest
claim upon me? Again the Prophet said ''your mother!''

Your mother, your mother, your mother! The Prophet had now said it
three times. Slowly, the man realized why he had done so. ''The
Prophet means that my mother is extremely important, so much so that
my duty to her must be stressed over and over again. Even so, the
man''s thoughts ran on, ''what about all the others I love and wish to
care for?'' Still uncertain and wanting to know more, he once again
turned to the Prophet and said, ''and after my mother, who comes after
her? Is there anyone besides her?'' The Prophet then replied ''after your
mother, your father.'' ''And then?'' asked the man. ''Then people who are
nearest to you,'' said the Prophet. Allah''s peace and blessings be upon
the Prophet.

The first Mother''s Day Proclamation was made in 1870, written by Julia
Ward Howe. In 1862, when she was actively involved in the antislavery
movement, the original proclamation was an impassioned call for peace
and disarmament. Here are the words of the original Mother''s Day
Proclamation:

"In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask that a
general congress of women without limit of nationality be appointed
and held at some place deemed most convenient and at the earliest
period consistent with its objects, to promote the alliance of the
different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international
questions, the great and general interests of peace."

*** 10 THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR MOTHER
