Rahman was reportedly extremely close to his mother. In one of his interviews, he had said that it was his mother who had always believed that he would take up music in future. During his interview he revealed," She has music instincts. Spiritually, she is much higher than me in the way she thinks and takes decisions. For instance, her decision of making me take up music. She made me leave school in Class XI and take up music. It was her conviction that music is the line for me."

He also clarified that his relationship with his mother was not like the one they show in the movies, wherein the mother and son constantly hug each other. However, at the same time, they had immense respect and love for each other. Rahman was raised by his mother Kareema Begum after his father RK Shekhar, a music conductor passed away when he was hardly nine years old.
