Mothers are so important in a son’s life because the way they relate to their mother is the foundation, upon which their later relationship with their partner will be based.
Importance of Mother in the Light of Islam
The following Hadiths explain the required treatment and the importance of the Mother in the life of the children:
A man came to the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship? The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: Your mother. The man said, ‘Then who?’ The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: Then your mother. The man further asked, ‘Then who?’ The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: Then your mother. The man asked again, ‘Then who?’ The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: Then your father. (Bukhari, Muslim)
A man once consulted the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) about taking part in a military campaign. The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) asked the man if his mother was still living. When told that she was alive, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “Then stay with her, for Paradise is at her feet.” (Al-Tirmidhi)
On another occasion, the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: “God has forbidden for you to be undutiful to your mothers.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)

The son Omar, Never gave up on her mother
According to Omar, he never gave up on her mother as he had a firm belief that one day she would wake up and become normal.
Saudi Crown Prince (MBS) helped her financially
The Munira was lucky enough as the Saudi Crown prince Mohammad Bin Sulaiman helped her financially so that she was able to get the treatment of her disease and she went to Germany for the cure.
Munira has started to respond
Ms. Abdulla is now able to answer questions with a little bit of difficulty and is able to recite verses from the Holy Quran. She recently visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque which was not even present when she suffered from the accident.
Over the many years, Ms. Abdulla was kept in a hospital in Al-Ain where she was fed with a tube, keeping her alive. She ever went under physiotherapy to ensure that her muscles did not deteriorate from the lack of movement.
Omar, her son, on the other hand, would visit her mother routinely, walking his way to the hospital for about four kilometers every day to see his mother. He would sit with his mother for hours but Omar could always tell that she was listening to him.
Omar never really desired to share this personal story related to her mother but he did so in order to tell people to never lose hope on their loved ones. Never consider them dead when they are in such a state.
