For Pioneering Personalities Week, in EYFS we celebrated the theme of “My Mother” because as our Prophet Muhammed (SAW) reminds us in this Hadith, she has a unique status:
A man came to the Prophet and said, ‘O Messenger of God! Who among the people is the most worthy of my good companionship?
The Prophet (PBUH) said:
Your mother. The man said, ‘Then who?’ The Prophet said: Then your mother.
The man further asked, ‘Then who?’ The Prophet said: Then your mother. The man asked again, ‘Then who?’
The Prophet said: Then your father. (Bukhari, Muslim)
We loved singing the nasheed “My Mother” by Yusuf Islam every morning to reflect on all the wonderful things our mothers do for us. During this week we had lots of fun making lovely cards for our mums. We created flower bouquets for her and amazing gold jewelled crowns because she is the ‘Queen’ in our lives. We especially enjoyed decorating cup cakes with glitter, icing, chocolate chips, and sprinkles for our super-star mums! After all, as narrated in a hadith: “paradise lies at the feet of your mother.”
