The Superiority of the Mother over the Father
Translated by Abbas Abu Yahya
From Sa’eed bin Abu Burdah from his father who said: Ibn Umar –RadhiAllaahu anhu- said: he was making Tawaaf and he saw a man making Tawaaf while carrying his mother saying: Indeed I am like her submissive camel. Even if her ride becomes startled I will not become startled and run away.
I carry her since she carried me more, do you think that I have paid her back O Ibn Umar? He said No, not even one breath while giving birth.’
