A mother asked her family doctor; “Why don’t women of this generation find enough milk to breast-feed their children?“
The doctor remained silent for moment, and then said; “Imagine cows that are in the field that are constantly driven at high speeds. Each night, when they return to the barnyard, they will not be able to give forth milk. Madame, such is the state of mothers today!“
Moral Of The Story:
yes, such is the state of mothers today. A mother in these times leaves home in the morning just as men do, striving with all their strength, preserving through the heat of the sun or through the cold of the winter, toiling – either of her own accord or under coercion, because at the end of the day (or month) she needs her paycheck.
How will the woman just described be able to find milk in her breasts in order to suckle her babies? Furthermore, how can she find time to look after her children? To bestow upon them her love? To give them her full attention?
And how are children expected to be trained when their mothers are far away from them? Or to feel satisfied in that they are receiving compassion and love? Especially when we consider that the only one to look after them is a nanny or a babysitter.
Therefore we should not be surprised when we find that mothers of today are not giving birth, or are not raising true men, men who aspire after the greater aims of life, men who contribute greatly to the Muslim nation.
Today we can only read about such women in books of history!
