See they not that they are tried every year once or twice? Yet they turn not in repentance, and they take no heed. 9:126
Hadith of the day
Surely Allah has chosen four cities from amongst all others, just as He, the Noble and Grand has said (in the Noble Quran): "I swear by the fig and the olive and the Mountain of Sinai and by this protected city." The fig is the city of Madinah; The olive is the city of Baitul Maqdas (in Jerusalem); The Mountain of Sinai is Kufah; and the protected city is Makkah."
