Thought for the Day:
Tie Your Camel. One day Prophet Muhammad SAWS noticed a Bedouin leaving his camel without tying it. He asked the Bedouin, “Why don’t you tie down your camel?” The Bedouin answered, “I put my trust in Allah.” The Prophet SAWS then said, ” Tie your camel first, then put your trust in Allah” (Tirmidhi).
