Ayahs of the Day:
Believers, obey God and the messengers of God, and do not turn away from him when you hear him. And don't be like those who say, "we hear," when they are not listening. [8: 20, 21]

Hadith of the Day:
Kinship is a trial from Allah. Those who maintain its ties will have ties with Allah, but those who sever its ties will have their ties with Allah severed. On the Day of Judgment, the tongue of kinship will be loose and eloquent. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
There are four things from the illumination of the heart -- an empty stomach because of caution; accompanying the righteous; remembering past sins; and not expecting to live for long. [Abdullah ibn Masud radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
The importance of strong, healthy emotional bonds between parent and child can't be overstated, because these bonds serve as the foundation upon which all other life relationships are built. If a child doesn't learn how to connect emotionally with a parent (or with another caregiver who serves as a parent), that child will probably encounter difficulty in connecting to people in all sorts of relationships for the rest of his or her life.

Many factors affect children's ability to bid, respond, and connect to others, including the type of temperament they inherit. We're all born with certain personality traits--sociable or shy, intense or easy going, and so on. To some extent, these traits determine how comfortable we feel in reaching out to other people or responding to others' request for connection. Still, a large part of a person's knack for emotional connection is also determined by what happens in the home. Consciously or not, parents teach their children through interaction and example. [The Relationship Cure]

Food for Thought:
The door of wisdom swings on hinges of common sense and uncommon thoughts. Common sense is seeing things as they are, and doing things as they ought to be done.
