Ibm Umar on Mothers: Do you think I have fully repaid my mother?

Abu Burdah reported: Ibn Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, watched a Yemeni man circling the House while carrying his mother on his back, saying, “I am her humble camel. If her mount is scared, I am not scared.” Then he said, “O Ibn Umar, do you think I have repaid her?” Ibn Umar said, “No, not even for a single pang of pregnancy.”

عن أَبِي بُرْدَةَ أَنَّهُ شَهِدَ ابْنَ عُمَرَ رضي الله عنه وَرَجُلٌ يَمَانِيٌّ يَطُوفُ بِالْبَيْتِ حَمَلَ أُمَّهُ وَرَاءَ ظَهْرِهِ يَقُولُ إِنِّي لَهَا بَعِيرُهَا الْمُذَلَّلُ إِنْ أُذْعِرَتْ رِكَابُهَا لَمْ أُذْعَرِ ثُمَّ قَالَ يَا ابْنَ عُمَرَ أَتُرَانِي جَزَيْتُهَا قَالَ لا وَلا بِزَفْرَةٍ وَاحِدَةٍ
