Under Islam, Muslims are NOT allowed to celebrate any ‘infidel’ holiday including Mother’s/Father’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and more. On the other hand, in many parts of the Muslim world, children honor their mothers by turning themselves into martyrs.
Meet Mariam Farhat, a mother who wills the death of her own children and the children of others. The New York Times recently identified her as “the mother of three Hamas supporters killed by Israelis.” “I raised my son to die an early death.” And now I can’t wait for my other kids to become martyrs for Allah.”
The Times added that “she bade one son goodbye in a homemade videotape before he stormed an Israeli settlement, killing five people, then being shot dead. She said later, in a much-publicized quotation, that she wished she had 100 sons to sacrifice that way. Known as the ‘mother of martyrs,’ she was seen in a campaign video toting a gun.”
