A Hindu mother of a Muslim boy

Can anyone imagine? But i think the love for a mother to her son cannot have any religion. I was born in a Muslim family but raised in a Hindu family. When my mother got paralyzed and bed ridden i was barely 2 years of age. My father expired when i was 7 months old. At that time there was not a single person to look after me. Then came my Hindu mother, a young dynamic Punjabi lady from Lahore. She urged my mother that let her take care of me. She was also having a son three and a half month younger than me. She took me to Kolkata and from this time i started feeling a mother’s love. I started calling her Ammi(alternate word Mother in Urdu).

My ammi took care of everything of me. She pampered me a lot and i was really a spoiled child. I was very naughty kid whereas her son was a very “bhola bhala”(innocent) kid. I broke cups and dishes, tried irritating ammi in various ways, but all in vain. She never got irritated and she used to laugh over my “kirtis”. I can recall i beat her own son and he was so sweet he sat and cried. My ammi was a great ‘Nishanebaaz’. I remembered when i and her son used to play and fight, though she reads a news paper at that time, she used to throw a chappal(shoes) on the correct culprit!

I was food lover and irritated ammi jaan to cook best foods. She with a great happiness cooked the foods for me of every type. I remembered a day, i was sleeping calmly. I waked up suddenly and started crying. Ammi asked; “shibu what happened?”…i cried and told her i want “Poori and sabzi” right now. It was 2’o clock, she went to the kitchen and cooked. Ammi jaan you are great.

I am a Muslim by religion. My ammi was the first person who made me realize Islam. She took me to an Islamic Tutor for Qura’an studies. My ammi always helped me in observing rozas(fasts) and during Eids(Islamic festivals) she was the person who cooked “sevaiyan” (traditional dish made with milk and sevaiyan) for me. She is a very pious Hindu lady. If she wanted she could have easily converted me to Hinduism. But, she never intended to. She always made me realize that religion is just a manifestation of Humanity and humanity is the biggest religion. Ammi jaan you are my God!

During Navratis(Indian religious festival) and Durga Puja she blessed me with the blessings of divine mother (Maa Durga) and i used to wait for my new clothes in Pujas (worships) and Diwalis. She respected my all requests. She scolded over my poor results and appreciated my hard works simultaneously. My ammi remains always ill. Four major operations, Bulky body,arthritis and high sugar levels had always encouraged me to become a Doctor. And She honored my decision and encouraged me. I worked hard and got admission into the best medical college. Her son, always used to experiments with toys. This led him to be an Engineer. I remembered when i was going to do my MS in US, she was so happy. But, she was also crying bitterly as i was going to US for 3 years. Oh Maa!…i have never seen a divine lady like you.

To My mother:

Maa i remembered your slapping when i smoked for the first time. I remembered your scoldings whenever i have committed wrong deeds, I remembered your ‘Bechaini’ (restlessness) for me, I remembered your beatings, ammi i remember each and everything. I remembered when you stopped me for not becoming an atheist and communist. Maa i remembered how you cried when i drank whiskey for the first time. Maa i remembered you protected me like an umbrella and suffered for me. I remembered when there was financial crisis, but you still paid my fees and never allowed me to work.You never made me feel how tough is this world. Oh Maa!….i seek your blessings for my entire life.

Now that i am going to give you your grandchildren!…bas aab ambarish ki shadi karva do…..Thank you for giving me a friend like him.You are most beautiful woman i have ever seen and i see Holy Divine Mother Durga in You. You have protected me from my problems in disguise of Demons in the same way as the Holy mother killed Mahishasur to protect this world. I see my Mecca Medina in you….i dont need to go to Hajj(pilgrim)..just a ‘parikrama’ of you and my hajj is completed. May Allah bless you with all His happiness, though i know you are not very happy….but i am here for you…dont worry!

  • you idiot. there is no god but Allah. nice “sentimental” attempt but you have already been converted without your own knowing. people who say humans are their gods are not following the correct aqeedah.

    there is no god but Allah

  • MAA… ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TRUTH OF THE NATURE. HER LOVE FOR HER CHILDREN IS BEYOND OUR IMAGINATIONS AND CALCULATIONS BUT ONE THING FOR SURE IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT IS HER LOVE IS FAR MORE STRONGER THAN THE DISCRIMNATION OF RELIGIONS AND ETHINIC DISTRIBUTION. THE MOTHERLY LOVE IS JUST PURE AS THE NAME OF THE LORD. THERE IS NO QUESTION OF A HINDU MOTHER OF A MUSLIM BOY OR VICE VERSA BUT YES IN A SOCIETY LIKE SUB-CONTINENT, HAVING RAISED A CHILD WITH HIS OWN PERSONAL IDENTITY INTACT STILL IS THE COURAGE OF THE LADY AS A HUMAN BEING. YOUR MOTHER IS A GREAT GREAT HUMAN BEING FOR SURE. THE FACT THAT SHE LOVES YOU AS A MOTHER MAY NOT BE AS POPULAR IN THE MASSSES COS EVERY MOTHER LOVED HER CHILD BUT YOUR MOTHER FOR SURE HAS SOMETHING MORE AND THATS UNCOMPAREABLE.

    MAAN TOH BUS MAAN HOTI HAI AUR USS KE LIYE TOH SAREY HI BACHEY BARABAR HOTEY HEIN, DR. SAHAB APNI MAAN SE JAB AP KI BAT HO TOH MERI TARAF SE BHI UNN KE PAIRON KO CHOO KAR ITNA KAH DEEJIYEH GA KE MOM YOU ARE GREAT AND I LOVE YOU SO MUCH THAT I CAN’T EVEN TELL. GOD BLESS YOU AND MAY YOU GET WELL SOON.
    BACHEY TOH BUS BACHEY HI HOTEY HEIN NA MAAN KE LIYE NAAM NAHI HOTEY BACHON KE, DUNIYA KE LIYE HOTEY HEIN.

  • Hey you halakha…

    Do u know what are the sentiments a maa can have for her children?…you don’t…and talking about religion maqbool was a Muslim and today he is still a Muslim…but before any religion is the religion of humanity…get it understand first and then speak this non sense about him..or the love my mother has given to him….

    @Vishal,

    Vishal..thanks bhaiji..really thanks mere bhai….aap ne samjha kam se kam is pyaar ko…..bhagwaan apka bhala kare…..

    Pyaar maa ka dunya main sabse bara hota hai…..is baat ko dunya kaab samjhegi…..mere nana jaan lahore ko apni maa ke tarah chatain thain……woh kehte thain ….”agar bacho ko maa se alag kar diya jae..to socho us maa ki halat…zinda maar jati hai bechari…aaj bhi lahore maa meri roti hai hum bachon ke liye”

    Pyaar woh chiz hai….jisko religion ke sath kabhi tulna hum nahi kar sakte….pyaar ke liye mazhub kya …aur bari chizen bhi hum kurban kar saktain hai

  • Your Welcome Brother

    But remember forever whatever i said i meant it from the bottom of my heart. I just don’t understand the philosophy of dedicating one day of a year to the most precious gift of the God to you and i don’t even agree to this celebration stuff having known a lot of people without mums.
    Braji jiss dard ki zuban nahi hoti issi tarah pyar ki bhi nahi hoti woh bas ayaan hota hia apney ap main, you sense its presence, you feel it and you just know it. Thats the love of a mother.
    Woh Malik Hum Sab Per Hamari Maan Ka Saaya Sada Salamat Rakhey aur Unn Ki Duaon Ki Chaya Main Yeh Zindagi Guzrey Toh Kia Hi Bat Hai.
    God Bless Moms….. Moms of Everyone. Everyone deserves to feel the essence of love and prays in life.

  • i agree with halakha

    either this is a fake story or i think you have been emotionally covertly blackmailed and converted to believing in many gods God Almighty being just one of them.

    Allah is one and only, your ammi being hindu is going to be in hell and you didnt saved her that shows how much you appreciate her love.

  • UN…

    Will u shut up!…god is one that i know…but u can respect a person and ur respect can be comparable to god!..and for my mom…she is going to get a hell or heaven..that u don’t have to decide..as i know what she is going to get….i myself see my god in my mother..

  • do u want to say..every Hindu goes to hell?..stop this religious biasements..this has taken a lot from us…a person gets hell or heaven depending on the work or karma..he has done to his society irrespective of religion..and for u..Mr.UN..don’t u feel ashamed..to say such fanatic words against a lady..who may be older by age than ur own ammi?…i will not pray to god to get u a hell..and that is the difference between u and me…no harsh words or feelings…just remember ur nothing but a bogus fanatic person…

  • UN/Halaka – should be ashamed. More so at being human. If being Muslim or non-Muslim was the ONLY criteria for a Mom (of anyone for that matter) going to hell or heaven… then God only knows what happened to Jesus’ Mom or Abraham’s Mom or of ALL other “Prophets” before Mohammad.

    There is a reason why the Islamic world today is in such a state… for, if ordinary EDUCATED people (you obviously are, since you can access the internet and write in English) – can paint HATRED on a post written out of such sublime love… then what would the uneducated and brain-washed youth be doing?

    Probably it is good that Sufis like Sultan Bahu, Bulleh Shah and Warris Shah are no longer living.. for they would have been ashamed to find how unconditional and innocent Love could be disrespected and ridiculed by fundamentalist hatred in this land!

    • Guys! it is not about HER.. it is about dogmas.. Have faith it unites.. there are things that divides..
      instead of making others ashamed or reminding others of hell or heaven.. just review your own selves..

      Mothers are mothers regardless of any religion..
      Hindu mothers raises Muslim kids and Muslims mothers raises Hindu Kids.. Not a big deal..

      Islam does not say anyone to be Hindu or Muslim.. it allows everyone to practice their religion as they want to.. only fanaticism has faded its shade..

      Life is short lived; pluck the beautiful things…

      one last thing

      “Stop using abusive language because Admin holds the authority to remove all the conversation by just pushing delete button”

  • Thank God… I believe my religion to be Humanity not Hinduism or Islam or Chirstianity or Budhism. If being affiliated to a religion is the only criteria one gets hell and heaven, than i believe none in the world would get heaven. If muslims believe hindus get hell that the hinus can reciprocate too.
    We have had enough of it haven’t we?
    Grow Up Guys, a mother is just a mother. She is way ahead of the dicriminations of religions and ethinic differences. I just don’t understand where the ethics and the morals of the society are? A person who is half aged as compared to the person he is talking about doesn’t give a damn to the respect she owes him for being elder. Are we really in the Sub-Continent still? Is this the sub-continent britishers ruled and used to sing the songs of the love, and the respect, the purity of the relations, the harmony in the religions. We Have long left all those values behind.
    Rubab, politics is the only thing these guys are good at so I suggest you should not really post anything else over here especially not pure relationships like a Mother Son, to get insulted in the worst possible way.
    No Hard Words and No Harsh Feelings but you Guys are Just Sick…

  • Mother is someone…i rele dont have any words to describe Maa. i start crying while reading that. it does not matter from which religion she belong but respect for Mother is some most important thing for you.you cant cant pay her back any deed of her that she did with u bcoz its priceless…so people love your mothers they are gr8. no comparison with MAA.

    MAA i love u alot (May u have long living life)
