Hazrat Yahya Bakhtiar Kaki was teaching his pupil Hazrat Khwaja Qutbuddin how to read the Quran and was surprised when the pupil said I will not read the first 14 chapters. When asked why, he said because I know the first 14 chapters by heart as my mother used to read them while I rested in her lap. Before he left her lap he had the chapters by heart and therefore did not need to be taught them.

So the problem is solved. The truth is that if the mother is the one who reads the Quran then the son will be Qutbuddin. Our mothers and sisters have the duty from your offspring that you make them reader of the Quran and teach them namaz. The women whose milk is sacred will give birth to men who are namazi when they come to the prayer mat and are ghazi when they go to the battlefield.

Muhammad bin Qasim said a very pleasant thing. When an elderly Muslim woman was deprived of her veil (dopatta) by the men of Raja Dahir of Sindh, Qasim cried out O, my mother I am coming to you to retrieve your honour. And he invaded Sindh and changed history. Today if our women do ablutions (wuzu) before suckling their babies and read Sura Rehman while the babies feed, they will beget Sultan Salahuddin, Muhammad bin Qasim, Ali Hujwiri and Pir Mehr Ali Shah.

Once the Prophet PBUH was sitting in the midst of his Companions in his mosque at Madina. He told them that they should ask for whatever they wished and he will grant them on behalf of Allah who was the giver while the Prophet PBUH was the distributer. Hazrat Salman Farsi wanted the health of his seriously ill son, which was granted. Hazrat Khalid bin Walid wanted two swords to fight against the infidel, which too were granted. Then Abu Hurayra stood up crying and said people have asked for health and weapons but I want you to cause my mother who is still an infidel to become a Muslim. The Prophet PBUH raised his hands and started praying for Abu Hurayra’s mother. While he prayed Abu Bakr endorsed it by saying Amen.

Abu Hurayra who was weeping a while ago now stood smiling and when the Prophet PBUH asked him why he was smiling he said he was sure that his prayer was accepted by Allah and my mother has become a Muslim. When Abu Hurayra went home and knocked, his mother said she was taking a bath and would open soon. When she appeared, she was ready to go somewhere in her new clothes. She said please take me to your Prophet whose slave you have become so that I too can become his slave. This is how great sons prevent their mothers from going to Hell and instead open the door of Paradise for them.
