How to Respect Your Mother

June 16, 2012

One of the fundamental tasks of a child is to honor and respect his Mother earnestly. In both the great faiths – Islam and Christianity – a strong obligation is placed on a child to show much respect to his Mother. In Islam, a strong warning has giving on a child, “Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to your parents” (Holy Quran 17:23). And in Christianity, a strong commandment has ordered, “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise, “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth” (Ephesians 6:2-3). Both these injunctions are divine call from God, commanding us that we respect our parents. Following are some steps you can follow to respect your mother earnestly:

Treat Her with Goodness
Your Mother loved you when you were young, and she will continue to love you even when you grow old. Know that your Mother always puts you first. So, why not show some courtesy to her? You should treat your Mother like a princess. You should do the thing that pleases her, buy something that is appealing to her, greet her throughout the day, call her if you’re far away from her, and do anything that can put a smile on her face.

Treat Her with Kindness
Your Mother always treats you with kindness; you need to return back the favor. Treat your dear Mother with dignity and honor and tightly hold on to her more than anything.

Speak Nobly to Her
Your Mother is your teacher, your instructor, and your motivator: respect her for that and keep showing your appreciation towards her both in words and in manners. When talking to your Mother, speak gently to her as if you’re speaking to someone you’re highly respecting. Recall that your Mother is better for you than anybody else. You should respect your Mother better than anyone because your Mother’s worth can never be compared with anyone else.

Say No to Her
Do not say NO to your Mother. By any means, do not defy your Mother’s advice because she thinks beyond your narrow mind and foresees more than what your eyes can see. Even when your Mother advises you on something you are not sure of, try to explain your disapproval in a humble manner.

These are some of the tips you could use to avoid disrespecting your mother. Our mothers are very special creation that we can’t afford to demean them or hurt them. You can follow these tips to respect your mother earnestly and keep her happy all the time.
