Ayah of the Day:
All that they said was: "Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and anything we may have done that transgressed our duty; establish our feet firmly, and help us against those that resist faith." And Allah gave them a reward in this world, and the excellent reward of the Hereafter. For Allah loves those who do good. [3: 147,148]

Hadith of the Day:
Allah is self respecting and His self respect is roused by a person indulging in acts which He has forbidden. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wisdom of the Day:
If someone wants to know what position he enjoys in the eyes of God, he has only to look at what place he gives to God in his heart and life. [Hakim]

Guidance of the Day:
The cure for heedlessness is in four things that possess authentic rectifying qualities. The first is repentance and seeking forgiveness. As a matter of regular worship, one should ask for forgiveness (istighfar) at least 70 or 100 times a day, according to the Prophet's teachings, which were closely followed by the righteous forbears (salaf). The practice is connected to accounting for one's deeds. Each of us is a merchant with regard to what we lost or gained with respect to God's pleasure. When there is loss which is a frequent occurrence, seeking God's forgiveness balances things out. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
The majority of men fail because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail. Failure doesn't mean you are a failure, it just means you haven't succeeded yet.
