8 brothers vie to serve mother perform Haj
This year’s Haj witnessed eight sons of a woman competing with one another in assisting their mother to perform her Haj rituals comfortably. They all wanted to gain special reward from Allah for doing goodness to their beloved mother.
Many people accompany their elderly mothers and fathers for Haj and Umrah to show their love and commitment toward them, inspired by the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah that urge the faithful to support their elderly parents.
Seventy-year-old Aysha came for Haj this year with her eight sons, and each one them wanted to provide maximum care to her. In order avoid conflict, the youngest of them, Mustafa Al-Faisal, proposed that everyday two of them carry her in a wheelchair to perform the rituals.
“It was a good suggestion,” said the eldest brother Moussa. “During the past 20 years we have been saving money to perform Haj with our mother,” he said, hoping that Allah would accept their Haj and prayers.
