I Qur’anic Verse of the Day


Qur’an: The Rope of God


وَ اعۡتَصِمُوۡا بِحَبۡلِ اللّٰہِ جَمِیۡعًا وَّ لَا تَفَرَّقُوۡا۪وَ اذۡکُرُوۡا نِعۡمَتَاللّٰہِ عَلَیۡکُمۡ اِذۡ  کُنۡتُمۡ اَعۡدَآءًفَاَلَّفَ بَیۡنَ قُلُوۡبِکُمۡ فَاَصۡبَحۡتُمۡ بِنِعۡمَتِہٖۤ اِخۡوَانًاۚ وَ کُنۡتُمۡ عَلٰی شَفَا حُفۡرَۃٍمِّنَ النَّارِ فَاَنۡقَذَکُمۡ مِّنۡہَاؕ کَذٰلِکَ یُبَیِّنُ اللّٰہُ لَکُمۡ اٰیٰتِہٖ  لَعَلَّکُمۡ  تَہۡتَدُوۡنَ.(103:3)


And hold fast to the ropeof God and be not divided. And bear in mind God’s favour on you when you were enemies of one another so He united your hearts and with His grace you became brothers and you stood at the very brink of an abyss of fire and He saved you from it.In this manner, God explains to you His revelations so that you may be guided. (3:103)



II Hadith of the Day


Showing Affection


عَنْ أبي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ الْأَقْرَعَ بن حَابِسٍ أَبْصَرَ النبي صَلَّي اللّٰہُ عَلَیۡہِ وَسَلَّمَيُقَبِّلُ الْحَسَنَ فقال إِنَّ لي عَشْرَةً من الْوَلَدِ ما قَبَّلْتُ وَاحِدًا منهم فَقَالَ رَسُوْلَ اللّٰہِ صَلَّي اللّٰہُ عَلَیۡہِ وَسَلَّمَإنه من لَا يَرْحَمْ لَا يُرْحَمْ

Abu Hurayrah (rta) reports that al-Aqra‘ ibn Habis saw the Prophet (sws) kissing [his grandson] al-Hasan whereupon al-Aqra‘ said: “I have ten children and I have never kissed anyone of them.” At this, God’s Messenger (sws) said: “He who is not affectionate to others will not be shown affection [from God].”[1]
