:salam:

I hope the person reading this is well, Insha'Allah.

After getting into bad company and facing subsequent losses, I thought about one thing.

Many people often quote the Hadith where the Mercy for All Worlds (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) says that Heaven is at the feet of mothers.

Surely, this also means that if person A harms person B, such that person B's mother is hurt, even so far that person B's mother cries, especially if Person B is a victim of your Zulm, then despite Person A being good with their mother, Person A has done Zulm on Person B's mother. Due to obvious motherly love, Person B's mother will complain to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) about Person A's actions. As such, is it logical to think that Person A is set for an appropriate retribution through the 'Adalat of Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى)? The Hadith seems to imply that treatment to one's mother is a big determinant towards one's position in the Hereafter, and judging by thge wording, I find that it not only talks about one's own mother, but other mothers as well. Surely, Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) delivers 'Adl for the Mazloom, so with this logic, is it justified to think that Person A's Hereafter is not a Heavenly one?

I found this to be an interesting topic, but since I am so unlearned, I thought I would ask the much more learned people at ShiaChat.

JazakAllah

This narration is symbolic and literal at the same time. Your parents are one of the best ways to enter Paradise. All throughout the Qur'an, Allah mentions himself AND your parents in the same clause. This shows the importance of them.

However, the narration you state only means that your treatment of your mother can lead you into Paradise or Hellfire.

JazakAllah, thank you for your reply. It does make sense then, this logic, for of course only after Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) do parents come, and Zulm is against His commands.

This statement explains the importance of a mother and her place in our lives. My mum used to tell me the story of a man who did the entire Hajj (pilgrimage) with his elderly mother on his back. “The Prophet Muhammad ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) told him that this did not even repay his mother for a single kick the man gave his mother while she was bearing him in the womb.” No doubt we can never repay our mothers dedication,love, sacrifices and the pain she goes through while giving us birth.

That's obvious ... it's difficult for any mother to see her child suffering or being in pain. And if she is aware of the reason for her child's suffering ...she will definitely pray to Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to ease her child's pain or any kind of Problem.

Abu Huraira reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Three supplications are answered without a doubt: the supplication of an oppressed person, the supplication of a traveler, and the supplication of a parent over his child.”

This statement only imply to your own mother but despite being nice to your own mother. ... your are being a reason for someone else's mother's restless heart ...of course this will have an impact on your Akhira. Your good behaviour towards your mother can be a way for your Shifaat but it doesn't mean you only have to be nice to your mother and ignore others...but the other hand if you behave toward others nice and neglected your own mother (what is the first priority) then you will definitely not enter the jannah. 

I hope I did explain my point of view correctly

Wasalam

JazakAllah, thank you for your reply. So far it seems that it is generally agreed upon that causing pain to another mother and thus enacting Zulm is indeed something that one will have to pay the price for.
