Hadith of the Day

Narrated `Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said, “No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn.”

(Sahih al-Bukhari)


Weekly Challenge

Did you know?

It takes 400 to 1,000 years for a plastic bag to break down. Every year more than 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide, however only 1-3% are recycled! The use of plastic bags is a serious harm to our environment and animal wildlife, we therefore challenge you to make a difference.

The challenge is therefore that you must reuse old plastic bags when you do your shopping, do not accept new unnecessary plastic bags for your every purchase! Alternatively, you may acquire quality reusable bags that you use for your shopping. You may also collect all your plastic bags at home and bring them to a recycling unit instead of throwing them in the trash.

For more information about the seemingly innocent plastic bag, visit environmental pages online.
