*[A5] Paperback – 94 pages, by Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada.
Without doubt, every father loves his children; however, the phrase ‘motherly love’ has become an aphoristic proverb. For this reason, it has been used as a measure to illustrate Allah’s love for His creation.
The Ideal Mother, In Light of the Qur’an, Sunna and Tradition looks at the various stages of motherhood and discusses Islamic rites and tradition, nurturing and fostering, education, upbringing, the onus and rights of the couple, mother and children and also illustrates the differences between imprudent and wise mothers.
It is essential that every mother reads this book. For this book makes her aware of her responsibilities and also provides a means of fulfilling those duties and achieving the desired objective.
