Those who believe and go into exile and struggle in the cause of God with their possessions and their persons are greater in rank in the sight of God; and they are the ones who attain salvation. Their Lord announces good news to them, of divine mercy and acceptance, and gardens for them, wherein is lasting happiness. Where they will abide forever. Truly there is a tremendous reward in the presence of God. [9: 20, 21, 22]

Guidance of the Day:
To make the most of your connection with your child, understand that in childhood, bidding for emotional connection is not an optional event. Children are designed by nature to behave in ways that attract attention from adults. From infancy on, a child's very survival depends on adults noticing them and taking action.
If children can't connect with parents through positive behavior, they will do it by acting up. For little ones, this may mean lots of fussy, whining, annoying behavior. Older children may become obstinate or defiant, just to get their parents' attention. But when parents turn toward their children's bids for connection in consistently positive ways, children are less likely to act up. Whether they are conscious of it or not, they know their parents are there for them emotionally, and they don't have to behave badly to prove it. The key is then to look for opportunities to turn toward your children and to connect emotionally with them. [The Relationship Cure]
Food for Thought:
