A smile!

Keep it positive folks, the suns shining, the winds are whistling and summer is here! There’s something about the summer that lifts the moods and everyone is out from hibernation.

Don’t let a thing drag you down. They say…someone who is rich doesn’t want anything. Is happy as they are.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Charity is prescribed for each descendant of Adam every day the sun rises." He was then asked: "From what do we give charity every day?" The Prophet answered: "The doors of goodness are many...enjoining good, forbidding evil, removing harm from the road, listening to the deaf, leading the blind, guiding one to the object of his need, hurrying with the strength of one's legs to one in sorrow who is asking for help, and supporting the feeble with the strength of one's arms--all of these are charity prescribed for you." He also said: "Your smile for your brother is charity." - Fiqh-us-Sunnah, Volume 3, Number 98

Anyone whose ever felt down in the middle of town or some street walking alone will know the power of another’s smile. It says more than words could. So this is a smile through the virtual confines of the internet to someone out there to in turn smile and be positive!
