Ayahs of the Day:
Allah did confer a great favour on the Believers when He sent among them a Messenger from among themselves, rehearsing unto them the signs of Allah, sanctifying them, and instructing them in scripture and wisdom, while before that, they had been in manifest error. [3:164]

Hadith of the Day:
Three things follow a dead person; members of his family, his belongings and his deeds. The first two come back and the third remains with him. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Be not content with stories of those who went before you. Go forth and create your own story. [Mawlana al Rumi]

Guidance of the Day:
Justice follows every vice. When it comes to arrogance, its possessors will end up being the most abject people in the Hereafter; they will envy those whom they once thought to be beneath them in honor and status, those who were patient, grateful and humble in this life. There are many passages of the Quran and hadith that support this.

There are different qualities and kinds of arrogance. The first type is when a person deems himself superior to others. Imam Ghazali said, "People of knowledge are in greater danger of arrogance than anyone else" because the knowledge they have attained may lead them to feelings of superiority.

The second type is arrogance displayed in a person who shows contempt and scorns to others. It is a marvel how some people act arrogantly because of their perceived piety, while the Prophet (peace be upon him), the best of creation, remained humble. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectations. The way to get things done is not to mind who gets the credit for doing them.
