Reward for Serving the Mother

Hazrat BaYazeed Bustami radiallaho ta'ala anhu states that on a cold winter night his mother requested water. When he brought water his beloved mother had fallen asleep. He felt it disrespectful to wake his mother and stood there waiting for her to wake up by herself. When she woke up she again asked for water. He presented the glass. One drop of water had fallen on my finger and had frozen due to the extreme cold. When I tried to remove it a piece of skin came off and started to bleed. My mother asked me what had happened. I explained the whole incident to her and she started to make dua. She said, "O Allah, I am happy with him, You also be pleased with him." When he was in the womb of his mother she never ate any foods that were doubtful (in terms of where they had come from, halaal etc).
Hazrat BaYazeed further states that when he was twenty years old his mother was lying down. He put his arm under his mother's head as a pillow. The hand went numb, but out of respect and not wanting to spoil his mother's sleep he did not remove his hand. At that time I kept reciting Surah Ikhlaas up to the point that I recited "Qul Huwal Laaho Ahad" ten thousand times. Due to the service of my mother I lost the use of my arm. (Due to lack of blood circulation that arm became paralysed).
After he had passed away, a friend saw him in a dream. Hazrat BaYazeed was walking very happily in Paradise and was busy in the remembrance of Allah Ta'ala. The friend asked, "How did you get this status?" Hazrat BaYazeed replied, "Treating my parents well, serving them, and being patient when they used stern words has given me this status because Rasool Allah sallalaho alaihe wasallam has said "Whoever is obedient to his parents and obedient to Allah Ta'ala, his status will be greatly elevated." (Nuzhatul Majaalis)
