MY KINDNESS.ORG TRIBUTE TO MY MOTHER MRS MESHAR MUMTAZ BANO

My tribute to my mother Mrs Meshar Mumtaz Bano via Kindess.org via Instagram

The 1st August 2017 marks my mother’s 65th birthday.

My beloved mother was a ‘courageous woman, she was my first school of thought, love, compassion and my paradise.’

Mum was an extraordinarily humble, kind and charismatic lady.

She could strike up a conversation with anyone. An empathetic listener, amazing chef and gardener, she possessed a sharp wit and humour that would instantly lift your spirits.

Yes! She had a beautiful smile. Never once did she complain about her cancer and all those horrible treatments. She was so calm and graceful even during the most difficult times.

Nothing was ever too much for her and she would go out of her way to help loved ones and strangers.

Strangers would always compliment and thank her for her warm friendly nature.

‘Be kind to everyone you meet because they have been sent from above, she used to say.’

A single parent Mum devoted her entire life to her 3 children and her magnanimous heart and selfless nature compelled to support others in dire straits.

She taught us to be kind and compassionate because as a young woman she had suffered immense hardship, racism and inequality while contributing to British society.

A survivor of domestic abuse she became a vocal advocate for women’s education empowerment and fairtrade.

She was a staunch supporter of my fairtrade campaigning and social entrepreneurship. ‘People will always remember how you made them feel so be kind and generous, she would remind us.’

‘SHE WAS MY BEAUTIFUL ANGEL WITH A PURE HEART OF GOLD.’

Thank you for your strength, optimism and unconditional love.

I miss you so much!

I can only pray you are at peace and enjoying a posh afternoon tea with your sisters and Nana in your very own Anne Hathaway’s Garden.

May (God) Allah subhana wa'tala bless you with a beautiful seat in Jannat ul Ferdose (Paradise). Aameen.

Love and prayers always

Yours eternally

Six Items Challenge 2021 with Sabeena Ahmed and Labour Behind The Label

This year the challenge commences 17th February - 31st March 2021. 

I have decided to participate and support the Six Items Challenge for the ninth year because I started to campaign for garment and factory workers while caring for my mother who had been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.

The six items challenge means I choose six items of clothing to wear for six weeks.
