Ayah of the Day:
The hypocrites men and women, are of each other; they enjoin abomination and forbid the beneficial, and they are stingy. They have forgotten God, so God has forgotten them. The hypocrites are the ones who are the deviants. [9: 67]

Hadith of the Day:
The marriage which is most blessed is the one which is lightest in burden and expense. [Bayhaqi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Seek out the company of those who would visit you when you are sick, who would forgive you if you would wrong them, and who would never seek to hide the truth from you. [Bayazeed Bustami]

Guidance of the Day:
The husband should also provide emotional security and support by being a source of warmth and affection, by showing his appreciation for the effort expended within the household. These are his worldly duties.

His religious duties are to teach his family the basics of their faith and the way to perform their acts of worship correctly, and then to supervise their implementation. He is expected to be fairly intransigent as concerns the rights of God on his family and extremely lenient as concerns his own personal rights, and never the reverse. Men should know that they will be asked to account for the way they fulfilled their duties, for the Prophet, may blessings and peace be upon him, has said, 'You are all guardians, and each of you shall be asked to account for his subjects.' [Man & The Universe]

Food for Thought:

Here are a few ways to celebrate joy: complete what you start, enlarge your interests, express gratitude to a friend.
