A mother’s role in Islam is monumental. A bond between a mother and a child is no doubt the most cherished and forms the basis of all life. A mother carries a child in her womb for nine months, gives birth to them, nurtures the child, many times sacrificing her needs for the sake of the child.
There are numerous quotes from the Quran and the Hadith which highlight the importance of parents, in particular the mother.
Allah has enjoined on man kindness to his parents; in pain did his mother bear him, and in pain, did she give him birth” (Quran:46:15)
Our Motherkind campaign is aimed at serving mothers, providing antenatal and postnatal care during pregnancy and childbirth. Mothers are still dying at alarming rates in developing countries because they don’t have access to quality healthcare. We want to stop these horrific rates.
With your help, we can help millions of women worldwide who don’t get basic medical intervention during the most crucial times of their lives, InshAllah!
