Justice

 

اِذَا حَکَمۡتُمۡ بَیۡنَ النَّاسِ اَنۡ تَحۡکُمُوۡا بِالۡعَدۡلِ ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰہَ نِعِمَّا یَعِظُکُمۡ بِہٖ ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰہَ کَانَ سَمِیۡعًۢا بَصِیۡرًا.(58:4)

II Hadith of the Day

 

Kindness to Wives

 

عَنْ جَابِرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللّٰهِ –(أَنَّ) خَطَبَ (رَسُوْلُ اللّٰهِ صَلَّی اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ) النَّاسَ (فِیْ حَجَّةِ الوِدَاعِ) وَقَالَ–اتَّقُوا اللّٰهَ فِیْ النِّسَاءِ فَإِنَّکُمْ أَخَذْتُمُوهُنَّ بِأَمَانِ اللّٰهِ وَاسْتَحْلَلْتُمْ فُرُوجَهُنَّ بِکَلِمَةِ اللّٰهِ …وَلَهُنَّ عَلَيْکُمْ رِزْقُهُنَّ وَکِسْوَتُهُنَّ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ 

 

Jabir ibn ‘Abdullah (rta)reports – that God’s Messenger (sws) delivered the sermon in the last hajj and said: “Fear God about your wives [that you do not commit any excess against them] because you have acquired them with God’s protection and have legalized sexual relations with them because of a word of God … It is your responsibility to provide them with maintenance and residence according to the norms [of the society].”[1]

 

 

III Bible Verse of the Day

 

Overcoming Sin

 

My son, give ear to the training of your father, and do not give up the teaching of your mother: For they will be a crown of grace for your head, and chain-ornaments about your neck.

 

My son, if sinners would take you out of the right way, do not go with them. If they say, Come with us; let us make designs against the good, waiting secretly for the upright, without cause;

 

Let us overcome them living, like the underworld, and in their strength, as those who go down to death; Goods of great price will be ours, our houses will be full of wealth; Take your chance with us, and we will all have one money-bag:

 

My son, do not go with them; keep your feet from their ways: For their feet are running after evil, and they are quick to take a man’s life. Truly, to no purpose is the net stretched out before the eyes of the bird: And they are secretly waiting for their blood and making ready destruction for themselves. Such is the fate of everyone who goes in search of profit; it takes away the life of its owners. (Proverbs, 1:8-19)
