Allah's Love as compared to mother's love

Allah has many a times commanded us in the Quran to observe the rights of parents but they only come after the rights of Allah. The Quran says:

And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was small." (The Holy Quran: 17:23-24)

Here is an example to illustrate how sacrificing mothers can be:

My mom only had one eye. I hated her... She was such an embarrassment.She cooked for students & teachers to support the family.There was this one day during elementary school where my mom came toSay hello to me.I was so embarrassed.How could she do this to me?I ignored her, threw her a hateful look and ran out.The next day at school one of my classmates said, 'EEEE, your mom only Has one eye!'

I wanted to bury myself.I also wanted my mom to just disappear.I confronted her that day and said, ' If you're only goanna make me aLaughing stock, why don't you just die?'My mom did not respond...I didn't even stop to think for a second about what I had said, becauseI was full of anger.I was oblivious to her feelings.

I wanted out of that house, and have nothing to do with her.So I studied real hard , got a chance to go abroad to study.Then, I got married.I bought a house of my own.I had kids of my own.

I was happy with my life, my kids and the comforts, Then one day, myMother came to visit me.She hadn't seen me in years and she didn't even meet herGrandchildren.When she stood by the door, my children laughed at her, and I yelled atHer for coming over uninvited.I screamed at her, 'How dare you come to my house and scare myChildren!'GET OUT OF HERE! NOW!!!'And to this, my mother quietly answered, 'Oh, I'm so sorry. I may haveGotten the wrong address,'And she disappeared out of sight.

One day, a letter regarding a school reunion came to my house.So I lied to my wife that I was going on a business trip.After the reunion, I went to the old shack just out of curiosity.My neighbors said that she died.I did not shed a single tear.They handed me a letter that she had wanted me to have.
'My dearest son,I think of you all the time. I'm sorry that I came to your house andScared your children.I was so glad when I heard you were coming for the reunion.But I may not be able to even get out of bed to see you.I'm sorry that I was a constant embarrassment to you when you wereGrowing up.
You see........when you were very little, you got into an accident, andLost your eye.As a mother, I couldn't stand watching youHaving to grow up with one eye.So I gave you mine.I was so proud of my son who was seeing a whole new world for me, in myPlace, with that eye.With all my love to you,Your mother.

Now, multiply this love 70 times and you''ll realise how much Allah loves his salves.
