Ayahs of the Day:
Do they not know that for whoever opposes God and the messenger of God there is Hell Fire, wherein they will abide? That is the greatest disgrace. [9: 63]

Hadith of the Day:
A truthful and trustworthy merchant is associated with the prophets, the upright and the martyrs. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Seek out a companion to help you in your affairs, and take his counsel concerning matters that occur from both inward states and outward affairs. [Ahmad al Zarruq]

Guidance of the Day:
The basis of the marital relationship in Islam is never passion or infatuation nor mere sexual attraction, but the kind of stable affection that makes for emotional security and thus peace and durability. To achieve this, rules were prescribed in Sharia based upon the very nature of men and women and designed to make the relationship as satisfactory and stable as possible.

That which men were favored with is what allows them to carry out their functions and fulfill their responsibilities, namely an intelligence which is more objective and less subject to emotional influences, the physical strength to work outdoors, the earning power that goes with these two attributes, the responsibility to give the children their name and the consequent hereditary rights.

This makes the man the main factor of stability in the household, the pivot around which all else revolves. He is therefore expected to provide material security to the best of his ability, which includes providing the household with all the necessities of life, protecting its members against external aggression, and acting as arbiter in the event of internal discord. [Man & The Universe]

Food for Thought:

To make your dream come true you have to stay awake. If you always live with those who are lame, you will learn to limb.
