Duty Towards Our Mothers

A Saint relates that once, having made intention of performing Haj, he left for Baghdad from where he was to proceed to Hijaz. In Baghdad, he arrived at the house of Hazrat Abu Hazim Makki (rahmatullahi alai) where he found Hazrat Abu Hazim Makki (rahmatullahi alai) fast asleep. When he awoke from his asleep, he came over to the Saint and told him, “I had the good fortune of seeing Rasoolullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in my dream just now, and he asked me to convey a message to you.”

“What is the message?” asked the Saint.

“He asked me to inform you that it would be better for you if you called off your journey to Hijaz for purpose of making Haj, and spent time looking after your aging mother and keeping her happy at all times. This would enable you to perform your Haj in the future with Allah’s Pleasure.”

The Saint, upon hearing this, returned home without performing Haj.
