II Hadith of the Day


Helping the Oppressor


عَنْ أَنَسٍ رَضْيْ اللّٰہُ عَنْهُ قال قال رَسُوْلَ اللّٰہِ صَلَّي اللّٰہُ عَلَیۡہِ وَسَلَّمَ انْصُرْ أَخَاكَ ظَالِمًا أو مَظْلُومًا فقال رَجُلٌ يٰا رَسُوْلَ اللّٰہِ أَنْصُرُهُ إذا كان مَظْلُومًا أَفَرَأَيْتَ إذا كان ظَالِمًا كَيْفَ أَنْصُرُهُ قال تَحْجُزُهُ أو تَمْنَعُهُ من الظُّلْمِ فإن ذلك نَصْرُهُ


Anas ibn Malik (rta) stated that God’s Messenger (sws) said: “Help your brother whether he is the oppressor or the oppressed.” A person thereupon said: “I can help him if he is oppressed but please tell me how can I help him if he is the oppressor?” The Messenger (sws) replied: “Stop him from oppression. This is how you can help him.”[1]



III Bible Verse of the Day


Life is more than Food!


And he [Jesus] said to his disciples, For this reason I say to you, Take no thought for your life, about what food you will take, or for your body, how it may be clothed. Is not life more than food, and the body than its clothing? Give thought to the ravens; they do not put seeds into the earth, or get together grain; they have no store-houses or buildings; and God gives them their food: of how much greater value are you than the birds! And which of you by taking thought is able to make himself any taller? If, then, you are not able to do even that which is least, why are you troubled about the rest? (Luke, 12:22-26)
