Devotion to mother
Bayazid was a small boy. His mother was ill. One day he was studying by the side of the bed of his ailing mother. But on a sudden his mother woke up raised her head and told her son to give her a glass of water. Bayazid went to the kitchen to bring water but he found no water there. As a result, he went to a distant fountain to fetch water. He came back with water and found his mother asleep. He did not wake her. Holding a glass of water in a hand, he s still beside his mother’s bed. He was waiting for his mother’s waking. But she was sound sleep.
When it was dawn Bayazid’s mother woke up and instantly discovered her son standing beside her bed with a glass of water in hand. She wondered for a moment. Then she could realize the fact. She could not control her tears. She embraced her son with deep love and blessed him from the core of her heart. Then she remembered and embraced her son with deep love. She earnestly prayed to Allah to bless her son with the highest honor in spiritual life. Allah granted her prayer and Bayazid became a great saint in his later life.
