Ayahs of the Day
Allah had already given you the victory at Badr when you were a despised (small force). So have fear of Allah, in order that you may be thankful.And when you said to the believers: "Is it not sufficient for you that your Lord should support you with three thousand angels sent down?" Yes: if you have patience, and guard yourself against evil, Allah will send to your aid five thousand angels making a terrific onslaught. [3:123,124,125]

Hadith of the Day
Allah is more pleased with the repentance of His servant than would be one of you who were to lose his camel in a barren desert and then find it suddenly. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day
Your life should become a beacon of guidance and it should become a means for Dawah. [Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi]

Guidance of the Day
Anger is truly an amazing phenomenon if one reflects on its nature and presence in human life and character, its peril and liability, as well as its utility and necessity.

There is a correlation between what a person does and what he receives from God in kind -- a correspondence that our all wise Lord has placed in the working of creation. If one wishes not to incur the wrath of God, then this person should not be wrathful or angry with people unjustly.

Anger is not a negative emotion in and of itself. It is part of human creation as our flesh and limbs are. Without anger, there are many things that would not have been achieved. Anger can be a positive monitor. The Prophet's (peace be upon him) anger was always in response to an aberration in human character and behavior offensive to God. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought
Holding the anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing at someone else, and you are the one who gets burned. Anger and jealousy can no more bear to lose sight of their objects than love.
