Prophet Muhammad on the Importance of Mothers

After Sheikh Muzaffer

A companion once asked the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him (PBUH)):

Who is the most important person for the soul in Islam?’

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) replied:

‘The mother’.

The companion pressed the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) for more information.

‘Who is the next most important person?’

Once more, the Prophet Muhammad replied:

‘The mother’.

The companion repeated the question a third time.

He received the same answer:

‘The mother’.

Finally, on the fourth repetition of this question, the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) responded:

‘The father’.

Who says Islam doesn’t respect women?
