الْأَخِلَّاءُ يَوْمَئِذٍ بَعْضُهُمْ لِبَعْضٍ عَدُوٌّ إِلَّا الْمُتَّقِينَ

Close friends, that Day, will be enemies to each other, except for the righteous

(جو آپس میں) دوست (ہیں) اس روز ایک دوسرے کے دشمن ہوں گے۔ مگر پرہیزگار (کہ باہم دوست ہی رہیں گے)

Quran (43:67)

Narrated Salman Al-Farsi Radiallahu anhu : Allah’s Apostle Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said, “Anyone who takes a bath on friday and cleans himself as much as he can and puts oil (on his hair) or scents himself; and then proceeds for the prayer and does not force his way between two persons , and prays as much as is written for him and remains quiet when the Imam delivers the Khutba, all his sins in between the present and the last friday will be forgiven.”

Sahih Bukhari, Book #13, Hadith #33

Juma Mohammed Abdullah al-Kaabi dies after Afghan blast

The ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Afghanistan died on Wednesday of wounds sustained in a bomb attack in Kandahar last month that also killed five Emirati aid workers, the UAE’s foreign ministry announced.

“With great sadness and sorrow, we mourn the martyr of the nation and his duty, the righteous son Juma Mohammed Abdullah al-Kaabi, who gave his pure soul for the sake of humanity,” the ministry said in a statement quoted by official news agency WAM.

The diplomats were expected to open a number of UAE-backed projects as part of an aid programme in Afghanistan.

The Taliban denied carrying out the bombing, saying the attack was a result of “internal local rivalry”.
