The Muslim Council of Elders, under the Chairmanship of His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, affirmed that Islam and its tolerant teachings place mothers in a high position, emphasizing their nobility, and urging kindness, care, and excellence towards them for their invaluable role in the lives of their children. The council highlighted that Almighty Allah, has linked kindness to mothers with worship, as stated in the Holy Quran: "And We have enjoined upon man [care] for his parents. His mother carried him, [increasing her] in weakness upon weakness, and his weaning is in two years. Be grateful to Me and to your parents; to Me is the [final] destination." (Surah Luqman 31:14).

In a statement on the occasion of Mother's Day, which falls on March 21st of each year, the Muslim Council of Elders emphasized that mothers symbolize boundless love and giving, embodying enduring human values that sustain families and prepare promising generations capable of bearing responsibilities and building a better and prosperous future. The council stressed the importance of providing support and care for mothers in various societies, ensuring their rights and respect, and creating conducive environments for them to fulfill their roles effectively and with dignity.
