Ayah of the Day:
O you who believe! Be not like the Unbelievers, who say of their brethren, when they are traveling through the earth or engaged in fighting; "If they had stayed with us , they would not have died, or been slain." This is that Allah may make it a cause of sighs and regrets in their hearts, it is Allah that gives life and death, and Allah sees well all that you do. [3: 156]

Hadith of the Day:

The wise man is one who keeps watch over his bodily desires and passions, and checks himself from that which is harmful and strives for that which will benefit him after death; and a foolish person is one who submits himself to his cravings and desires and expects from Allah the fulfillment of his futile desires. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:

Do not sit idle, for indeed death is seeking you. [Hasan al Basri]

Guidance of the Day:

The third cure for heedlessness is to invoke benedictions (durood) on the Prophet (peace be upon him). This is, in fact, a command from God the exalted Himself: O you who believe, invoke benedictions upon (the Prophet) and salutations of peace (Quran, 33:56).

There is great light associated with invoking prayers of benediction upon the Prophet (peace be upon him). If one does not have a murabbi (a spiritual mentor), then saying prayers of blessings on the Prophet (peace be upon him), will act as a murabbi. Many scholars have accounted for the fact that prayers of blessings upon the Prophet (peace be upon him) purifies the soul. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:

Success and failure are caused more by mental attitude than by mental capacities. If you listen to your fears you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.
