Other topics discussed: sending children off to college, getting married young, being grateful for the favors of our mothers, what to teach our children, sadaqah jariyyah (a recurring charity), the sunnah of smiling, writing articles about Islam, the need to take action, listening to music, earning money the haram way, role models for our children, Islam at the Vatican, and salat al-Hajah.
