Mother of Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmaani (hafizahullah) – Part One

Mufti Muhammad Shafee’ (rahimahullah) was a great scholar and the Grand Mufti of Pakistan. He rendered great services for this Ummah. Allah Ta‘ala blessed his progeny with great knowledge and piety. Two of his sons, Mufti Muhammad Rafee’ Usmaani and Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmaani (hafizahumallah), are world renowned muftis. However his wife played a vital role in all of this goodness. 

Her son, Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmaani (hafizahullah), writes: “The biggest support to me in life, after my father’s death, was my mother. Her compassion was a cure for all worries and her affectionate look would remove the bitterness of all the difficulties of life. My father’s entire life was devoted to the cause of Islam and my mother supported him through all the turbulent times. Infact, she had relieved him largely from all domestic worries to allow him to serve deen untroubled. Because of this, insha-Allah she would definitely receive a great share in all the good works my honorable father had done.” (Nuqooshe Raftagaa pg. 159-160)    

Lesson: This is the need of the time: Mothers who will inspire and motivate their children with Islamic values, and wives who will support their husbands in the effort of deen. We should never become obstacles in the spread of Islam. Our concern should be the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala and the progress of deen.
