Ayahs of the Day

The first House (of worship) appointed for men was that at Makkah, full of blessing and of guidance for all kinds of beings. In it are clear signs, the station of Ibrahim, whoever enters it attains security, pilgrimage thereto is a duty people owe to Allah--those who can afford the journey; but if any deny faith, Allah stands not in need of any of His creatures. [3: 96, 97]

Hadith of the Day
Whenever kindness is in a thing it adorns it, whenever it is removed from it, it disfigures it. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day
The person of bad character is like a piece of broken pottery, which can neither be patched up nor returned to clay. [Imam Ghazali]

Guidance of the Day
There is yet another kind of hope called umniyya, which is blameworthy in Islam. Essentially it is having hope but neglecting the means to achieve what one hopes for, which is what we refer to as an "empty wish." To hope for the Hereafter but do nothing for it in terms of conduct and morality is also false hope.

Entry into paradise is a matter of God's mercy and this mercy is attained by combining faith and sincere deeds for the sake of God.

O' Allah help us do the righteous deeds in accordance with the sharia with the utmost sincerity, ameen.
[Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought
When a noble life has prepared old age, it is not decline that it reveals, but the first days of immortality.
