"And be steadfast in your prayer and be charitable; whatever good you send forth for your future, you shall find it with God, for God is well aware of what you do." [Al-Qur’an 2:110]

WLIC would like to express its deepest appreciation and thanks to the Better Community Business Network

The Prophet (pbuh) said, 'Allah the Almighty has said: "Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.' [Related in Bukhari]
