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.

Take Your Writing to the Next Level!

While some writers make a dollar per article writing for content mills, others make a dollar per word writing for high-end magazines and other publications. A thousand bucks for a thousand words is a reality for many writers, and it can be your reality, too. The BIG BOOK of High-Paying Markets, a new Kindle e-book by Amel S. Abdullah, will show you how.
