Quote of the Day

Safiyah bint Huyai (radi Allahu anha), the Mother of the Believers, said: “I came to visit the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) while he was in the state of Itikaf [seclusion in the mosque during the last ten days of Ramadan]. After having talked to him, I got up to return. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) also got up with me and accompanied me a part of the way. At that moment two Ansari men passed by. When they saw him they quickened their pace. The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said to them, ‘Do not hurry. She is Safiyah, daughter of Huyai, my wife.’ They said: ‘Subhan Allah (Allah is free from imperfection)! O Messenger of Allah! (You are far away from any suspicion).’ The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied, ‘Satan circulates in a person like blood. I apprehended lest Satan should drop some evil thought in your minds.’” [Sahih Bukhari]
