Mothers in Islam

From the web site of his eminence Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Muhammad Husayn Fadlallah quoting a well-known and often-repeated hadith, an oral tradition of the Prophet Muhammad, which appears in several major collections, among them the one below. There are many more of such sayings. Happy mother's day.
A man once consulted the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) about taking part in a military campaign. The Prophet asked the man if his mother was still living. When told that she was alive, the Prophet (PBUH) said: "(Then) stay with her, for Paradise is at her feet." (Al-Tirmidhi)
