The parable of those who spend their substance in the way of Allah is that of a grain of corn: it grows seven ears, and each ear Hath a hundred grains. Allah gives manifold increase to whom He pleases: And Allah cares for all and He knows all things. Those who spend their substance in the cause of Allah, and follow not up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, for them their reward is with their Lord: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.
[Holy Quran 2:261,262]

Hadith of the Week

Avoid doing what makes you obliged to apologize for it. True believers never do anything for which they have to apologize. Fake believers, on the contrary , keep doing wrong and say they are sorry in the aftermath. -Imam Husain (AS), Tohaf al-Uqoul
