HADITH (Traditions of the Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him)

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) said, "When you have finished your (Fard) Salat (prayer) in the Masjid, you should observe some of your (Sunnah and Nawafil) Salat at home; Allah will bless your homes because of your Salat (in your homes).'' [Muslim]

Commentary: This Hadith has the message that the Fard Salat should be performed in the Masjid while some of the supererogatory, optional and voluntary prayers should be performed at home.

Through the nights and the days,
You held me upright,
Leading me to righteousness,
Following your light,

From time to time I have wandered of your explicit plan,
For years I have struggled, and blamed those close at hand,
Only to realize it’s been written by the same hand,
So on this day, I rise, and pray Allah-hu-Akbar,

In my heart, and mind is where you shall stay,
When my body departs this life,
Don’t shed a tear,
For it is my Allah (swt) I fear,

Let go of this worldly life,
And live as though your time is here.

A young couple came to the marriage officer to fill out a pre-marriage questionnaire form. The young man, who had never talked to a marriage officer before, was quite nervous and the officer tried to put him at ease.

When they came to the question, "Are you entering this marriage of your own free will?" there was a long pause.

Finally, the girl looked over at the apprehensive young man and said, "Put down yes!"
