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

Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) said, "A true believer is not involved in taunting, or frequently cursing (others) or in indecency or abusing.'' [At-Tirmidhi]

Commentary: This Hadith tells us the virtues of a Mu'min (true Muslim). Taunting here means to disgrace someone with reference to his lineage or by means of backbiting and slander. La`in is a person who is given to frequently cursing others, reproaching and using abusive language. (Fahish) is one who commits through word or practice immodesty. Badhiy is a person with a loose tongue. This word is also used for an impudent and abusive person. This Hadith strongly criticizes these vices.

The day I knew my in-laws had finally accepted me:

As we pulled into their driveway, my father-in-law was on the phone. "Oh, I have to run," he told the person on the other end. "My daughter-in-law and her husband just arrived."
