Ayahs of the Day
Be quick in the race for the forgiveness from your Lord, and for a garden as vast as the heavens and the earth, prepared for the God fearing. Those who spend (freely), whether in prosperity or in adversity, those who control their anger and are forgiving toward mankind, for Allah loves those who do good. [3: 133, 134]

Hadith of the Day
The salat is light, alms giving is proof (of one's faith), and to be steadfast is as good as light, and the Holy Quran is a plea in your favor or against you (as the case may be).Every one begins his morning ready to bargain with his soul as a steak and frees it or loses it. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day
Seek out a companion to help you in your affairs, and take his counsel concerning matters that occur from both inward states and outward affairs. [Shaykh Ahmad Zarruq]

Guidance of the Day
Muslim scholars have identified four essential qualities in human beings. The first of them is known in the western tradition as the rational soul, the human capacity to learn. The second is the capacity that relates to human emotion and anger. The third is related to appetite and desire. The fourth is that which harmonizes the previous three powers and keeps them in balance so that no one capacity overtakes and suppresses the others.

The one who perfected the balance between these forces was the Messenger of God (peace be upon him). The one who emulates him in his behavior, the greater balance one will achieve. The way of the Prophet (peace be upon him) was the middle way, the way of moderation. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought
Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die. With love even major differences become minor.
