There was a young man, before he was a Muslim; he lived with his mother until he
was about 18 years old. Then he moved out of his home and lived in a different
place on his own. During those days, he met some Muslims and became very close
friend to them. Eventually he himself became a Muslim after learning about the
beautiful religion of Islam from them. He made an effort every day to learn more
and more about Islam. One day, he came to learn about the benefits of being good
to one’s parents. After knowing this, he decided to visit his mother whom he did
not visit for many years. He bought some flowers and fruits for her on his way.
His mother was very pleased to see him after so long. He started spending lots
of time with his mother on a regular basis. During his visits, he would stare at
his mother and tears would roll down from his eyes. The mother noticed this
happening many times and asked him one day the reason, why he visits her so much
all of a sudden and why he cries. He told her about how he became a Muslim and
that the position of a mother in Islam is very high.
He also told her about the reward he gets for looking at her.
But while looking at her, he cries because the mother is not a Muslim and would
not be able to save herself if she dies in this state. The mother immediately
recognized the beauty of Islam and became a Muslim.
