I Qur’anic Verse of the Day


Supporting the Cause of Religion


یٰۤاَیُّہَا  الَّذِیۡنَ  اٰمَنُوۡا ہَلۡ اَدُلُّکُمۡ عَلٰی تِجَارَۃٍ  تُنۡجِیۡکُمۡ مِّنۡ عَذَابٍ اَلِیۡمٍ.تُؤۡمِنُوۡنَ بِاللّٰہِ وَ رَسُوۡلِہٖ وَ تُجَاہِدُوۡنَ فِیۡ سَبِیۡلِ اللّٰہِ  بِاَمۡوَالِکُمۡ وَ اَنۡفُسِکُمۡ ؕ ذٰلِکُمۡ  خَیۡرٌ  لَّکُمۡ  اِنۡ کُنۡتُمۡ  تَعۡلَمُوۡنَ. یَغۡفِرۡ لَکُمۡ  ذُنُوۡبَکُمۡ وَ یُدۡخِلۡکُمۡ جَنّٰتٍ تَجۡرِیۡ مِنۡ تَحۡتِہَا الۡاَنۡہٰرُ وَ مَسٰکِنَ  طَیِّبَۃً  فِیۡ  جَنّٰتِ عَدۡنٍ ؕ ذٰلِکَ الۡفَوۡزُ الۡعَظِیۡمُ.وَ اُخۡرٰی تُحِبُّوۡنَہَا ؕ نَصۡرٌ  مِّنَ اللّٰہِ وَ فَتۡحٌ  قَرِیۡبٌ ؕ وَ  بَشِّرِ  الۡمُؤۡمِنِیۡنَ. یٰۤاَیُّہَا  الَّذِیۡنَ  اٰمَنُوۡا کُوۡنُوۡۤا  اَنۡصَارَ اللّٰہِ کَمَا قَالَ عِیۡسَی ابۡنُ  مَرۡیَمَ لِلۡحَوَارِیّٖنَ مَنۡ  اَنۡصَارِیۡۤ  اِلَی اللّٰہِؕ قَالَ الۡحَوَارِیُّوۡنَ نَحۡنُ  اَنۡصَارُ اللّٰہِ.    (61: 10-14)


Believers! Shall I guide you to a deal that will save you from a grievous torment? Profess faith in God and His Messenger, and fight for God’s cause with your wealth and persons. This would be better for you, if you understand. [As a result,] God will forgive your sins and admit you to gardens below which streams flow; He will lodge you in splendid abodes in eternal gardens. This is great success. And He will [also grant] what you desire: help from God and a victory near at hand. And [O Prophet!] Give these glad tidings to the faithful. Believers! Be God’s helpers the way Jesus, son of Mary, said to his disciples: “Who will be my helper in the cause of God?” The disciples replied: “We are God’s helpers.” (61:10-14)



II Hadith of the Day


Gratitude in Deprivation


عَنْ أبي هُرَيْرَةَ أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللّٰہِ صَلَّي اللّٰہُ عَلَیۡہِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ إذا نَظَرَ أحدكم إلي من فُضِّلَ عليه في الْمَالِ وَالْخَلْقِ فَلْيَنْظُرْ إلي من هو أَسْفَلَ منه مِمَّنْ فُضِّلَ عليه


Abu Hurayrah (rta) reported that God’s Messenger (sws) said: “When anyone of you sees someone who is blessed with [more] wealth and [better] physique, he should also see him who has [lesser] wealth and physique.”[1]
