Ayah of the Day:
The only ones to frequent and maintain the mosques of God are those who believe in God and the last day, and who practice prayer and give alms for the poor and fear none but God: then they may be among the guided. [9: 18]

Hadith of the Day:
Modesty does not bring anything except good. Modesty is part of faith, and faith leads to Heaven; while vulgarity is part of disbelief, and disbelief leads to Hell. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Son of Adam, whatever you earn beyond your upkeep you are storing for somebody else. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
If you want to improve your marriage, you should work on improving that fundamental unit of emotional connection, the bid. Remember: Happily married couples extend bids and respond to one another's bids for emotional connection at a much higher rate than unhappily married couples. They make a habit of constantly turning toward one another's attempts to connect. They avoid turning away or turning against each other. This habit has a remarkable payoff: It allows spouses to be affectionate to one another and maintain their interest and sense of humor, even when they're in conflict.

Husbands and wives who live mindfully together find a seemingly infinite number of ways to turn toward each other and connect emotionally. Mostly, this is a matter of noticing and responding to their partners' bids for connection. But husbands and wives can also be proactive, creating increased opportunities in their shared lives for turning toward one another. [The Relationship Cure]

Food for thought:
The first years of life are crucial in determining what shall be the future of the child physically, mentally, and spiritually. That grave responsibility belongs by right of sex to the woman who bear and nurture the whole human race. Theirs is the right to bear and rear to maturity as well as to influence for good or ill the precious souls of men. The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world.
