It was said to Ali ibn alHussein (May Allah be pleased with him): “You are from the most diligent of people, however we never see you eat with you mother!”
He responded by saying: “(The reason why I do not eat with my mother is because) I fear that my hand may reach out and eat something that her eye fell upon before mine (which she desried to eat); and I end up disrespecting her (because of that).”
Subahaanallah- this paragraph has made me speechless.
May Allah bless our parents, forgive us and make us a people that always remain the happiness of our parents hearts. Ameen.
