Quran of the day:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّمَا الْخَمْرُ وَالْمَيْسِرُ وَالْأَنصَابُ وَالْأَزْلَامُ رِجْسٌ مِّنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَاجْتَنِبُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ
O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah ], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful. [5: 90]
Sunnah of the day:
Whoever would like to have his provision increased and his lifespan extended (and to be remembered after he dies), let him uphold his ties of kinship. [Muslim]
Hikmah of the day:
The one who is distant from the love of this world tastes the sweetness of loving the Divine, and these are not attained but through His generosity. [Ma’ruf Kharkhi]
Hoda of the day:
Today, severing kinship and lack of concern for assisting and treating them with kindness has become rife. This could be why the ummah and the world around us is in such disarray, afflicted with poverty and scarcity of provision. It has been handed down that preserving kinship lengthens lives and increases wealth. Allah has increased certain people’s provisions and accrued their wealth, although He has never looked at them since He created them for their preservation of their kinship bonds. Severing bonds and abandoning kindness will have the opposite effect. Quite evident in families today, everyone divided and not putting together resources collectively. Allah knows best.
Food for thought:
When one is being kind from the grace of one’s heart they are remembered nameless, for. kindness is a language the dumb can speak and the deaf can hear and understand. You cannot do an act of kindness too soon, for you never know how soon will be too late. Loving people more than they deserve is the kindness you want to give.
