21 March - Mother's Day in most of the Arab world
The mothers who raised todays young adults have gone through a complete overhaul that the Arab region saw in the 1960s and 1970s. Arab mothers of today have seen independence in the Gulf states, the founding of oil, wars in Palestine, Syria, and Iraq and the liberation of Kuwait. They have successfully put aside the hardship that they have faced in order to empower their children.
This day, however, has a long history that dates back to Ancient Egypt. Ancient Egyptians held an annual festival to celebrate Isis, a goddess who represented the perfect idea for motherhood, new life and fertility.
In Islam, there is no such thing as mother's day or father's day. In fact, Islam urges us to respect and care for our parents throughout our lifetime, instead of specifying certain days for it. Our parents, especially our mothers, undergo so much, just to keep us safe in this world.
