Ayahs of the Day:
When a (courteous) greeting is offered you, meet it with a greeting still more courteous, or (atleast) of equal courtesy. Allah takes careful account of all things. Allah! there is no God but He: of a surety He will gather you together against the Day of Judgment, about which there is no doubt, and whose word can be truer than Allah,s? [4: 86, 87]

Hadith of the Day:
Those who have plenty of wealth will indeed own the least on the Day of Judgment, save those who spend their wealth like this and this and this to the right, to the left and the rear but such persons are few. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
A human being is not a human being while his tendencies include self indulgence, covetousness, temper and attacking other people. [Imam Ghazali]

Guidance of the Day:
If we stop breathing, cells die, and then we die. The heart needs to breathe, and the breath of the heart is none other than the remembrance of God and what it entails. The very purpose of revelation and of scripture is to remind us again and for the final time that our hearts needs to be nourished.

We enter into the world in a state of fitra,the original state, the inherent nature of the human being that is disposed to accept faith and prefer morality, but we learn to be anxious mainly from our parents and then our societies. The heart is created vulnerable to anxiety and agitation. Those who are protected from this state are People of Prayer, people who establish Prayer and guard its performance with a humble and open heart connected with God the Lord of all creation. The highest ranks among people are those who do not allow anything to divert them from the remembrance of God. They are the ones who remember God while standing, sitting, and reclining on their sides (Quran, 3:191). [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
You should adopt a habit of reading useful knowledge, which is that which increases your knowledge of the essence of God, His Attributes, Acts and Favors, makes you aware of His Commands, and Prohibitions, leads you to work for the Hereafter.
