Hadith Of The Week   

 Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه has narrated that Rasūlullah صلى الله عليه و سلم said: “The most complete of the believers in faith, is the one with the best character. And the best of you are those who are best to their wives.”(At-Tirmidhi Allah says  “…And live with them (your wives) in kindness…” (Quran 4:19) The Quran speaks about the relationship of man and woman as husband and wife in many a verse … but one of the most comprehensive verses is: “They (your wives) are a garment for you and you are a garment for them   [2:187]   


UAF will be closed on Monday, January 21, 2019 in observance
