Scholars have interpreted this in connection with the dreams that Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him, began to have related to what was his forthcoming mission, for six months before he was blessed with the prophethood. According to a report in Sahih al-Bukhari,6 the Prophet would have dreams at the break of dawn and these dreams would actually happen the next day; and this continued on for six months while he was married to Khadija.

Of course, disobedience towards one’s father is also forbidden, but one of the reasons why only mothers are mentioned here is because their kindhearted nature can be taken advantage of.
