The Ideal Mother


Urdu lecture by: Mufti Faruq Meerathi (mudda zillihu) 

English translation by: Moulana Muhammad Ilyaas Patel   


The success of a child is largely dependent on the proper nurturing of the mother. Our great luminaries such as Imaam Bukhaari (rahimahullah) and Sheikh Junaid Baghdaadi (rahimahullah) reached very great heights. This was on account of the correct deeni values which were instilled in them by their mothers.

Hereunder are some aspects which will assist in becoming an “Ideal Mother”:

1. Regular du’aa for the children.

2.  Daily zikr.

3. Punctuality with salaah.

4. Daily recitation of the Quraan Majeed.

5. Caution in Deeni issues.

6. Serving one’s husband and in-laws.

7. Staying away from backbiting.

8. Removing all instruments of vice from the home with wisdom, such as the television, etc.
