He again asked, “Who next?” "Your mother", the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) replied again. He asked, "Who next?” He (the Prophet [SAWW](PBUH)) said again, "Your mother.” He again asked, "Then who?” Thereupon he [SAWW](PBUH) said,” Then your father.”

[Al-Bukhari Book 08, Chapter 73, Hadith # 02]
Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah Al- Ankabut Ayat 08. “Allah have enjoined on man to be good and dutiful to his parents” This Hadith tells us that the rights of the mother are three times more important than that of the father for the reasons that:
1 She is weaker than the father.
2. The following three troubles are borne exclusively by the mother while the father does not share them with her:
a) She carries the baby in her womb for nine months,
b) The labor pain which she suffers.
c) Two years’ period of suckling which disturbs her sleep at night and affects her health, She has also to be very cautious in her food for the welfare of the baby.
