LESSON OF THE DAY 287
The only ones who ask you for exemption are those who do not believe in God and the last day and whose hearts waver, so they vacillate in their doubt. [9: 45]
Hadith of the Day:
You will not believe as long as you do not love one another. [Muslim]WISE
Quote of the Day:
Quran is-aboveall-a book of guidance. There can be little blessing for those who have insufficient respect and veneration for the Quran to follow its guidance and command. [Shaykh Faraz Rabbani]
Guidance of the Day:
As for woman, Islam allows them to work in case of necessity; in other words, there has to be a justification valid enough for a woman to leave her territory, which is the home, and venture out in the jungle.
Previously a woman's education consisted in the knowledge and discipline necessary for her specific functions and for her life-to-come. The latter gave her far sightedness. In today's urban communities most women receive technical education that raises their expectations and allows them no peace of mind if they stay home.
At the same time, religious education is totally neglected even in "cultured" individuals. Islam always stresses the importance of practical solutions and to claim, as only fanatics do, that this denies women the right to work, leaving them chronically dissatisfied, is nonsensical. [Man and the Universe]
Food for Thought:
Material things bring convenience, comfort, and pleasure, they don't compare to the peace which comes from living within your income. Many small luxuries too increase expense. A new car isn't a sign of how much money a person has, but it's a pretty good indication of how much a person owes.
