Besides many Qur’anic verses, there are many traditions in Shii and Sunni sources about mother and her invaluable position. One of the most famous traditions which is attributed to the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his household, is “Paradise is underneath the feet of mothers.” This article attempts to have a look at the documents and the text of this narration. It is surprising that such a well-known saying has no place in valuable Shii and Sunni sources. After doing some research it becomes clear that this saying has been fabricated by two narrators who have report the hadith only by its meaning in Sunni sources and its evidence has been been given by those who are known for being either false or are unknown. The article concludes that this saying cannot be attributed to the Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him and his household.
