Ayahs of the Day
O you who believe! Devour not usury,doubled and multiplied, but fear Allah, that you may (really) prosper. Fear the fire which is prepared for those who reject faith. And obey Allah and the Messenger, thatyou may obtain mercy. [3: 130, 131 132]

Hadith of the Day
Allah will continue to hold out His hand at night so that he who has sinned during the day might repent, and to hold out His hand during the day so that one who has sinned at night might repent, and Allah will continue to do so till the sun rises from the west. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day
Dont just grow up, grow better with time and grow more experienced in age, keep being passionate about what you do, keep trying new things, keep patient and keep trying your best. The path to God is straight through wilfull surrender to God. [Dawud Wharnsby]

Guidance of the Day
If anger is not guided to something useful, it can possess, consume and destroy a person. Do not allow anger to lord over oneself and cause the loss of one's comportment. In other words do not become anger, its embodiment, such that people only see your rage. Instead control anger and never lose control.

Scholars have likened anger to a hunting dog: without training , it will never retrieve what its owner needs nor will it point a person in the right direction. So anger is something that needs to be trained not abolished, for if people completely suppressed their sense of anger, many of the injustices of the world would not have been opposed and tyranny would have gone unchecked. Corruption would cover the face of earth. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought
Anger is a killing thing, it kills the man who angers, for each rage leaves him less than he had been before, it takes something from him.
