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

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (Peace Be Upon Him) was asked: "Which Salat is the best?'' He replied, '' The best Salat is that in which Qiyam (the duration of standing) is longer.'' [Muslim]

Commentary: We learn from this Hadith that of all the articles of Salat (Ruku`, Sujud, etc.), it is best to lengthen the Qiyam because the greater the Qiyam is, the longer the recitation of the Qur'an will be. Since the recitation of the Qur'an is the best form of remembrance of Allah, the lengthening of the Qiyam is also most meritorious.

It's important to check on your neighbours regularly, especially if they're elderly. Just knock on their doors and ask if they're OK.

You: "Hello! Is anyone there?"

The little old lady (shouting from behind her door): "Whatever you're selling, we don't want any."

You: "I'm not selling anything. I'm your neighbour. Just stopping by to make sure you aren't dead."

Neighbour: "Dead? No, I don't think I'm dead. But I'm not sure about my husband. He hasn't moved from the couch since 2003. Do you think that's abnormal?"

You: "Only if he isn't holding the remote."
