Nasheed: Number One for Me, by Maher Zain

It’s time for yet another nasheed (see below video). The more you listen to nasheeds, the more you will notice that many of them concern a child’s love for his or her mother. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said that “Heaven lies at the feet of mothers,” highlighting the great status of mothers in Islam.

This nasheed (Number One for Me) is performed in English by Maher Zain, who, according to Wikipedia, is a “Muslim Swedish R&B singer, songwriter and music producer of Lebanese origin.”

This is a somewhat playful nasheed that demonstrates the great amount of love, respect, and fondness that exists between a mother and her child throughout the different stages of their lives. It is, however, a tearjerker, especially if you have grown children (don’t say I didn’t warn you). You can view the lyrics here.
