I won't be celebrating Mother's Day today, it's becoming too commercialised. So unlike most blogs which I've visited today, I won't be talking about my own mother, huhuhu.
I've decided to choose my own date and way of appreciating the woman who gave birth to me, 38 years ago. Anyway, who says that Mother's Day has to be celebrated on the 2nd Sunday in May? It's not an Islamic religious festival, so we're free to choose!
And I've decided...
1. To thank her on my own birthday, and celebrate her anniversary of earning the title of 'mother', for that's the real day she's actually become one.
2. To take her on a nice outing on her own birthday, insyaAllah.
3. To celebrate her love on many, many days when both are free to enjoy, and not feel pressured by all the hype and commercialism regarding this day.
4. To continuously pray that she's be given hidayah to be a Muslim, for it's different having a nonMuslim mother. Unlike Muslims's children, I can't pray for my mother's sins to be forgiven or that Allah swt would give her a place in syurga.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone :)
