Ayah of the Day:
If a wound has touched you, be sure a similar wound has touched the others. Such days (of varying fortunes) We give to mankind by turns, that Allah may know those who believe, and that He may take to Himself from your ranks martyrs -- witnesses (to Truth). And Allah loves not those that do wrong. [3: 140]

Hadith of the Day:
A true action leads to the path of virtue and good deeds, and virtue paves the way of a person to paradise, and he continues to speak the truth till in the sight of Allah he is named the truthful. Lying leads to vice, and vice leads to indecent acts and if a person goes on lying till in the sight of Allah he is named a liar. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Knowledge never sinks into the mind of a person who acquires it for worldly purposes. [Imam abu Hanifah]

Guidance of the Day:
The cardinal virtues originally stem from religion. A generous person gives from his wealth to others because he is not afraid of losing his power or wealth; he knows all power and wealth are with God. All further virtues emanate from the cardinal virtues. Mercy, for example, issues from wisdom (hikma), since forgiving someone when you are wronged requires a recognition of greater wisdom in remission and the greater good in clemency.

Anger (ghadab) remains an essential quality of the human creation. If ignorant people say something disparaging that does not relate to religion, then ignore it. One should not get angry when there is no benefit in doing so. For when one speaks ill of another, the speaker not only acquires misdeeds, but his own good deeds transfer to the account of the victim.
[Purification of the heart]

Food for Thought:
No God, no peace. Know God, know peace. If you are too busy to pray you are too busy.
