As salamu alaykum To The Tired Mama

To the tired mama,







May Allah bless you for all that you are doing. When you think no one sees your struggles, Allah does. When you think no one hears your cries at night, Allah hears. When you think you are alone, Allah is always there.

You're not the only one who wants to cry when things can feel too much. Dishes on constant rotation, children screaming without hesitation, and you're ready to run..who cares the destination!

We understand how you feel, and from one mother to another your loving work is not in vain. There is much good in all that you do. When our children are older, and on their own, it is your teachings that they take with them. It is your love, nourishment, and sacrifices that help them to be who they are. Trust me, it is and will be appreciated. Allah has blessed us in this beautiful role, and it is a honor, but with this honor, there will be sleepless nights, tears, worry, and sometimes stress, but I also know, that with this honor comes love, laughter, happiness, and hugs. The good in this outweighs the not so good moments, but theres lessons in all of this. Lessons for you  and for your family.

Be easy on yourself and take a moment to rest, refresh and pray. Prayer changes your heart, your life and ask Allah for guidance. Don't feel bad because everything is not done, we are not perfect, take your time and do as much as you can without overdoing it. You cannot give your best if you are not at your best, and a little does go a long way.

Tired mama this homemaker is sending a special prayer and hug your way. I ask that you remember these few things:

Our blessed job, serves humanity.. we are working to send God conscious, loving, kind, and productive people into society (praying their good works and lessons be a means for them to enter jannah) and that will take some loving work.

You can do this... some days are rough but Allah knows, things could be worse, remember be grateful

Pray.... stop and make duaa, focus in your prayer and ask Allah to renew your strength

Remember: You are a blessing
----- Ameera

  2. Walaikum assalam Sister and thank you for this beautiful message, Masha'Allah. I have 5 children; 17yrs(M), 14yrs(M, 11yrs(F), 7yrs(M) & 2yrs(M) and I have felt like a "Tired Mama" often (though I rarely cry). Like you mentioned so beautifully sister, the good in this role out weighs the bad drastically. Moments when I have felt that I was not getting through to my kids or important tools my husband and I were attempting to provide them with were being disregarded (ie. prayer, Islam as compass for life), my children have then turned around and given the same advice to their peers or each other. Alhamdulullah a mercy from Allah SWT. We trade the diapers for dishes then the dishes for the tug of world with dunya but as long as we hold tight to the rope of our deen in sha Allah we will all attain success (Quran 3:185)
