Ayahs 0f the Day:
There is immunity from God and the messenger of God for those polytheists with whom you have made treaties; So travel the earth for four months, and know that you cannot thwart God, and that it is God who thwarts the atheists. [9: 1, 2]

Hadith of the Day:
There is no obedience to created beings when it entails disobedience to the creator. [Tirmidhi, Ahmah]

Wise Quote of the Day:
It is important to keep one's shame, whether male or female, for nothing destroys a nation faster than losing one's shame in public. The responsibility of maintaining a religious and modest society weighs on the shoulders of both Muslim men and women, so let us take this role seriously. [Shaykh Amjad Rasheed]

Guidance of the Day:
Focusing on dreams can also help people find shared meaning within a conflict. The idea is to focus less on the conflict itself and more on the dreams, goals, or wishes that underlie each person's fixed position within that struggle. Some might call such dreams "hidden agendas."

There's a good reason for people in conflict to try to view one another's perspectives in a more positive light: Digging into each other's hidden agendas or hidden dreams offers a tremendous potential for intimacy and emotional connection. The trick to uncovering that potential is to stop trying to resolve the conflict. Instead, talk about the meaning your position holds for you.

When people in conflict start sharing their dreams/goals, the conversation becomes a revelation of what really matters in their lives. It becomes a bid for connection, an opportunity to turn toward one another with statements like: Now I understand," or "I can see why you feel that way," etc. [The Relationship Cure]

Food for thought:
Home is the ideal workshop for acquiring all of the gentle traits of femininity, as you function as a wife, mother, and home maker. The world isn't short of brainpower. It's short of love, kindness and spiritual values. The workshop for such teaching is the home and the mother the master teacher.
