Some say they wish they could well treat their mothers and return a small part of her favor upon them, but she, unfortunately, passed away. If your mother passed away then it does not mean you cannot be kind to her anymore nor are you disconnected to her, as She owes you a favor even when she is dead. You are deprived of her love, looking at her beautiful face. However, you can do much in your journey of recognizing the favor and showing gratitude for her. Here we will try to mention some things you can do and are considered an act of kindness towards your deceased mother.
In Many Ways, Happy Mother’s Day
In addition, you have to maximize your good-deeds towards your mother even after her death that you may find her feeling happy with you and all the things you did for her, and to show that you never forgot her even after her death and that you are still committed to being kind and thankful to her:
• Asking God to bestow mercy and compassion upon her, and wishing her to dwell in the highest rank of paradise wearing the dress of heaven and to enjoy her dwell there. Also ask God to alleviate the darkness and loneliness of her grave and bestow his light upon her, and to replace her with a better dwelling and a higher status and to drink from the well of the prophet Mohamed PBUH and countless other wishes and supplications.
