Ayahs of the Day
Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong, they are the one's to attain felicity. Be not like those who are divided amongst themselves and fall into disputations after receiving clear signs, for them is a dreadful penalty. [3: 104, 105]

Hadith of the Day
For any trouble, illness, worry, grief, hurt or sorrow which afflicts a Muslim, even the pricking of a thorn, Allah removes in its stead some of his (minor) sins. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day
The righteous salaf were as fearful of their good deeds being squandered and not accepted as the present generation is certain that their neglect will be forgiven. [Hasan al Basri]

Guidance of the Day
Another disease of the heart is vanity, known in Arabic as ujb, which is related to arrogance. The possessor of vanity is impressed with himself, and so admires his talents, possessions, looks, and status, and he considers himself better than others.

is a nefarious kind of vanity in which a person rejoices in the blessings he has, but forgets the sources of these blessings. The fact that someone has talent and is able to develop into a higher skill and craft and achieve remarkable things does nothing to diminish the obvious--that it is from God. Realizing that God is the source of all blessings prevents vanity from entering the heart. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought
Petty people seek out the faults of great people, while great people overlook the faults of petty people. If a small thing has the power to make you angry, does that not indicate something about your size.
