Story on Obedience to Mother
Once there was a small boy named Bayazid Bastami. His mother was ill. One night he was studying by the side of the bed of his ailing mother. All of 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 unfortunately, there was not a drop of water in the pitcher there. So, Bayazid went to a distant fountain with the pitcher to fetch water for his mother. He returned with the pitcher full of water. But by that time his mother fell asleep again. Bayazid thought that he should not disturb his mother’s sleep. So, he stood still beside his mother’s bed with a glass of water in his hand. Thus, the rest of the night passed by. In the morning, his mother woke up. She found her son standing with a glass of water beside her bed. At first, she could not understand anything. But soon she could remember everything. Her heart was filled with a unique love for Bayazid. She embraced her son and prayed for him from the core of her heart.
