Love of Mother !

Standard

Today on Mother’s Day I also want to salute those mother’s who received hater and pain from their own children.

I am sharing a clip , It is Punjabi Poem but I am trying to translate it in English. I am translating the whole clip with the introduction and then the poem.

This poem indicates the darkest part of our society where children don’t respect their parents, they even beat their mothers because mothers are weak, or this is better to say that mothers love doesn’t allow them to harm their children back.

Their are so many heart breaking stories which can fill your eyes with tears, tare your heart apart and leave the question , How can a child turned into evil for his mother ?

Here you go. Please read, listen and watch the clip.

 

 

This poem is the real story. It took me 10 years to complete this poem; I was in Pindi City one night when this poem itself awakes me and bring the completeness with itself, this poem brings all the words with it suddenly. I waked up and completed this.

This is a real story it was a poem about 2 boys Bashir and Akram living in a village and one day they reached their school very late and their Munshee( Class Master) asked Bashir why are you late? And today I am accepting that master was me, Myself Anwar Masood.

The poem goes like this….

Master asked Bashir

Oh Bashir, Why are you late?

Your village is not so far from school

I will beat you, why you are late even 2 periods had been passed

Bashir said, Master, listen to me please before punishing me

Akram has done something really bad,

He beats his mother now and then

Today he beated her so badly and so madly

Even the madani (The wooden grinder used to make Ghee) has broken

Everyone has gathered in his home

When he took his books and ran to school to save him

Later,

His mother came to our home

With bruised and swelled face

Tears full of eyes

Shivering lips with broken words

She said,

My son Bashir

Do me a favor please

Dear son.. Please take Akram’s lunch with you to school

Today he is again angry with me

He went to school hungry

I make parathas and halwa (sweet) for him

He must be hungry; he must be dying of hunger

Please my son; take Akram’s lunch with you

His mother was saying again and again,

Oh Bashir please hurry up, hurry up,

My son Akram is hungry

And Bashir ended like

Oh Master, Akram has raised hell.

      • they will – our bible says, “Children obey your parents in the Lord for this right. Honor your father and mother (this is the first commandment with a promise).
        That it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.” Ephesians 6:1-3

      • I have a couple of past posts – My father passed away from illness when I was 4 years old – have nice memories of him – very kind man. My mom had a bad childhood herself and was mad when my father passed so she raised my 2 brothers and I with a lot of bitterness and anger and pride. She was a sad woman. I know she loved us but had a hard time saying it and showing it. I was the middle child and the only girl. My oldest brother took the brunt of her bitterness. That was sad. But I believe God ha his hand on us and we turned into rather kind adults. She passed away at 86 years old in 2001.

      • very nice – we are soon going to our middle sons’ and his wife – for coffee and cake! Very relaxing day. How I like it.
        You will be a mother soon, my friend. You already have the heart….

      • Ammen :)cThanks for your prayers Cate.
        πŸ™‚ I wish I could see that day soon. InshaAllah
        And Have a lovely day ahead , Enjoy and upload pictures πŸ˜€

  1. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such kind words. My scars are part of who I am and help me continue to grow in strength. I’m following you site, my first visit was very motivational. I am reblogging you post on Mother’s Day. The poem is touching. Have a blessed day.

      • I look forward to reading and watching more of your blog. I know the words were powerful by the tears around the room. I think my readers will feel the depth of the poem. A mother’s love is deep and many of my readers are mothers. Thanks for your blessing. A Blessing in good faith is a Blessing. Have a great day. I look forward to your next post.

      • I understand Allah but not Insha, you’ll have to educate me. I study many different religions to understand our past and the Muslim religion appears simple but is not. We have two beautiful Mosque near my house but I’ve been reluctant to attend services. I watched part of the pilgrimage to Mecca and it looks fascinating. So many people yet very organized. We have much in common, we want peace on earth and in heaven and believe in God. That’s all I need to call someone a friend.

      • InshaAllah means , by Allah’s will , If Allah’s want.

        I will share whatever I know. I also like to learn different cultures and costumes. I believe and I said this many times on different points, that no religion teach hater. Every religion spread love and peace, it is only us who modify the practices for our own ease and desires

        Did you went to Mecca or on TV ? I wish I could go there with my husband and our families.

        we are human’s with same needs, and we must respect humanity, yes we are common.

        I will see you again.
        May Allah bless you and your loved ones. ameen

      • Thank you for taking the time to write me. I will take you up on you’re offer to learn more. I agree, religion teaches us to live in peace and love the God they worship. Our religions are different but have one big blessing in common, we be be live in God. I have several English translations of the Quran/Koran. I don’t understand why the holy book is called by two names. I saw the services at Mecca on TV, it was so moving, I felt so close to Muslims at that moment. They were praising God. I would love to go but not sure non Muslim Americans are welcome. I was so surprise by the number of people in the Bible mentioned in the Quran. It’s a life long learning process. The key for me is educate people that Muslims are not terrorist. Just as we have terrible criminals, even terrorist, Muslims have terrible criminals& terrorist who hide behind religion.

        I look forward to talking with you soon.

        God Bless You

      • Hello again,

        Well their is only one word Quran, but on internet different people write it as Quran or Koran, but QURAN is the right word.

        Well, I have not been to Mecca yet, but in my dreams I went to Kabba once πŸ™‚ and once I saw myself in struggle to went to kabba in my dream. It is strange that how dreams can take you to any place in this world.Do you believe in dreams ?

        You have raised a very good point here, Yes Religion has no Terrorism, That what my gavatar says, and that is my message. we in Pakistan are the greatest sufferer of terrorism and our economical conditions and other cultural values are disturbed so much due to this terrorism. Islam doesn’t support hater, force , it spreads peace and love only. Humanity is the biggest issue in Islam, Allah says, if one man is killed that means all humanity is killed.

        I hope to see you again.
        May Allah bless you and your loved ones.

      • It is great to hear from you. Yes, Pakistan has had more than enough of terrorism. It’s very difficult to understand from so far away. I have been interested in other religions since I was 16. It’s ironic I wrote about Muslim religion. I have an English translation of the Qur’an and was reading last night. We are more alike. The Qur’an is very clear what people who are good and follow Allah can expect in the after life. I found several readings about what is wrong and they will not be rewarded in the afterlife. Our religions are similar in what the good and bad can expect. I don’t know why I’m telling you about the Qur’an. I find reading the Qur’an teaches me how much alike we are. We believe in God and good/evil.
        Yes I believe in dreams, I’ve had many dreams come true and others provide insight. Have a blessed day.

      • I forgot to ask an important question. Is Islam like Christian in that specific teachings like Muslim being one of several different religions under Islam. I’m not sure that made since. Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions. I’m writing another post about BoKo Haram. Talk to you soon.

      • Hello there πŸ™‚

        Sorry for late reply, I am not feeling well due to flu and fever.I just came online to reply you, I received your message on on cell phone but replying via cell phone is not so comfortable for me.

        First , I want to say I am happy that you have such a great knowledge about Islam and Quran. secondly you asked me one question which I don’t understand clearly … you asked .. “Is Islam like Christian in that specific teachings like Muslim being one of several different religions under Islam.” ?? Are you talking about different sects in Islam or anything else, sorry for this confusion but if you may repeat it please.I hope you wont mind, I think flu has eaten all my brain πŸ˜€ ..Its my third day and I think it will be over on 7th day.

        Waiting for your reply.
        May Allah bless you ameen.

      • I hope you are feeling better. The flu is the worst. I have had chronic health problems for three years and it can wear you down. Yes, Sects was the word I was looking for but wasn’t sure it was proper. The Christian religion has many different sects with Christian teachings, there just a little different. I read the Sufi? (both spelled wrong) and Bahai are not acknowledged by Islam? I don’t know much about that. We have a Bahai? center, huge Sufi Mosque and a Large beautiful Mosque close by. I have wanted to attend services at the Mosque but don’t feel comfortable. At daily prayer time, the Mosque is very busy and they are expanding. That tells me we have a large Islam community here. I feel terrible to just throw questions at you especially when you are not feeling well. As you can see I’m a very curious person and like to learn. Do different sects pray at the same Mosque? I don’t know the details on that. Let me see if I know the sects, Muslim, Shiate, Sunni, I think there is one more recognized by Islam but can’t recall. I know the religious names wrong, pardon me. I still have much to learn about the structure, how the sects are different and the number of people observing each. That’s interesting to me. My husband doesn’t understand why I’m interested. My mind is open to learning what I don’t know. Please don’t feel any rush to respond, when you feel better you can write then.
        I’ll be thinking about you and look forward to talking with you again. How do you say your name? I’m not very good at guessing. Take care. πŸ™‚

      • Hey πŸ™‚

        I am feeling much better but not 100% Perfect πŸ™‚ though I am not always 100% perfect always :D. Not by soul and nor do by health πŸ™‚

        Well, the name ok, Afsheen, and you may pronounce it like.. AF-SHE-EEN , What is your name ?

        The questions you asked, yes sects, We have many sects in Islam, and there are mainly 2 sects, Shia and Sunni, then in sunni sect there are subdivisions but all subdivisions in sunni’s follow the same rules.

        Shia follows Imam ( leader, teacher) Jafriya , He is a great teacher and from Prophet’s Family, Suuni follows Imam Hafniya and some Imam Hambal teachings, they are also related to prophet (pbuh).

        In simple ways you may understand FIQA OR SUBDIVISION in Islam is due to different schools, but the good thing is all say the same kalma ( proof of Allah and his Prophet).

        When you understand this, then I will go to SECTS difference.yes they are different but they all accept each other as Muslim.

        You may add me on FB, to have a private chat on this in detail πŸ™‚ send your message on my Dreams to Reality page and i would love to have discussion with you.If you only like. If you like to discuss it here then no problem for me πŸ™‚

        May Allah bless you and your loved ones.
        Ameen

  2. Ameen, Thanks for visiting friendlyfairytales, I am touched by your post here. The mother in the poem breaks my heart. How we love people who hurt us. The post raises the issue of unhappy, dysfunctional families, which seem more common than happy, functional ones. I hope your family honors and respects mothers, even if others around do not. I am fortunate to be in a happy, functional family even though I didn’t grow up that way. Regards, Brenda

  3. My thoughts and prayers to all the mothers in the world hurt and broken in any way by the very people who should have love, respect and protect them. I can’t imagine how a son or daughter can hurt a parent who raised them up, feed them, care and love them all these years. To me, it’s evil and cruel. No person in general has the right to inflict harm to others. Thanks for sharing this post. It opened so many eyes and hearts.

    • Yes You are right and I agreed with your every word.
      There are so many things going on here, and in the whole world also which can keep you in shock for many days. I am very sorry to share this but on the mothers day, here in a village of Pakistan, one mother poisoned her three kids due to family matters.2 kids were died immediately and then third one is still in hospital. This World is a cruel place, but we have to make it beautiful. keep the balance otherwise this world will be destroyed.
