Pearl of Wisdom
in his advice to Hisham b. al-Hakam, said, ?O Hisham, nothing has been bestowed upon the servants better than the intellect. The sleep of a man of intellect is better than the night vigil of an ignorant man. Every single prophet that Allah has sent down has been a man of intellect, whose intellect supersedes the labour of all diligent workers. The servant is not considered as having fulfilled an obligatory act from among the acts made incumbent by Allah until he understands it.'

Dua' for Virtuous Children
No efforts can succeed without the help of the Almighty. Recite the following du`a seven times after every daily prayer for a virtuous progeny. The du`a is the prayer of Prophet Zakariyyah (a) and is found in Surah Ale Imran, verse 37 of the Holy Qur’an.
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful
O Allah, bless Muhammad and his family
My Lord! Grant me, from Yourself, a good (virtuous) offspring.
Surely, You are the Hearer of prayer.
O Allah, bless Muhammad and his family.
