Ayah of the Day:
God expands the provision of anyone at will, and limits. Yet they delight in the life of the world. But the life of the world is but a utensil in respect to the hereafter. [13: 26]

Hadith of the Day:
Stay with the truth, for the truth will guide you to good, and good will take you to Paradise. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Wisdom: The fruit of following the Sunna.
Chaos: The fruit of following the ego. [Othman al Jabri]

Guidance of the Day:
Respect of parents is a primary and sacred obligation. If you do not respect your parents, you are disobeying God Almighty. From the very moment of conception, a growing and developing child is a care and responsibility for its parents. One cannot estimate the depth of attachment and compassion parents feel for their children, or calculate the troubles and hardships they endure because of them. For this reason, respecting parents is a debt of human gratitude as well as a religious obligation.

Those who value their parents and regard them as a means to obtain God's mercy are the most prosperous in both worlds. Those who regard their parents' existence as a burden or who become weary of them inevitably suffer the most severe hardships in life. The more one respects one's parents, the greater the respect and awe one will feel before his Creator.

Children should respect and obey their parents as much as possible. Parents should give as much importance to their children's moral and spiritual education as they do to their physical growth and health, and should entrust them to the care of the most honorable teachers and guides. How ignorant and careless are those parents who neglect their children's moral and spiritual training, and how unfortunate are the children who suffer neglect and are victimized! [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:

Family's form a society's foundation. The reciprocal respect of rights and obligations within a family results in a healthy and strong society.
