Jannah Lies Under Her Feet

Jannah Lies Under Her Feet: A Story of a Newborn's Conversation with Allah ﷻ

Key Takeaways:

  1. Divine Appointment: Allah (SWT) designates mothers as "angels" on earth, tasked with nurturing and protecting their children.

  2. Unconditional Love: The story emphasizes the boundless love a mother has for her child and her willingness to make sacrifices.

  3. The Path to Paradise: Honoring and respecting one's mother is likened to finding a path to Paradise, underscoring the importance of this bond in Islam.

A newborn spoke to Allahﷻ, filled with curiosity and apprehension. "They say you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how will I survive, being so small and vulnerable?"

With warmth and assurance, Allahﷻ replied, "Your angel will be there to welcome you, to protect you, and to care for you."

The baby, still uncertain, asked, "But here in heaven, all I have to do is smile and sing to feel joy. How will I find happiness on earth?"

"Your angel will sing to you with a voice that brings you comfort," Allahﷻ said. "Your angel's smiles will light up your world, and you will feel loved in ways you cannot yet imagine."

With a small, thoughtful pause, the baby asked, "How will I understand the words people say when I don't yet know their language?"

"Your angel will speak to you with the gentlest words, guiding you patiently, teaching you to speak and understand," Allahﷻ answered.

"And how will I speak with you, Ya Allah?" the baby asked, seeking reassurance.

"Your angel will teach you how to pray, how to join your hands together and speak your heart to Me," Allahﷻ responded.

The baby's voice softened, filled with wonder. "Who will protect me on this new journey?"

"Your angel will be your shield, defending you with a fierce love, even at the risk of their own life," said Allahﷻ.

The baby trembled at the thought of leaving, "But I will miss you, Ya Allah. How can I bear not seeing you?"

"Your angel will speak to you of Me, and guide you back to Me," Allahﷻ promised. "Though I am always near, your angel will teach you the way home."

As the baby prepared to depart, a profound peace filled the heavens. The child quickly asked one final question, "Ya Allah, before I go, tell me my angel's name."

With a loving smile, Allahﷻ said, "You will simply call her, 'Mom.'"

SubhanAllah, how beautiful the bond between mother and child! Paradise lies under the feet of your mother.

"And We have enjoined upon man to be dutiful and kind to his parents. His mother carries him with hardship and delivers him with hardship. Her nurturing and weaning span thirty months."
