Ayah of the Day:
Whoever emigrates for the cause of Allah will find much refuge and abundance in the earth, should he die as a refugee from home for Allah and His Messenger, His reward becomes due and sure with Allah; and Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. [4: 100]

Hadith of the Day:
If in the sight of Allah the world had the value equal to that of the wing of the mosquito, He would not have allowed a disbeliever even to drink a mouthful of water out of it. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
When you mention your companion's faults, remember your own faults. [Ibn Abbas]

Guidance of the Day:
Freedom is achieved when one realizes the qualities of shame and humility, and empties oneself of their opposites (shamelessness and arrogance). With these qualities come true freedom, wealth and dignity. People may claim to be "free", yet they cannot control themselves from gluttony in the presence of food or illicit relations when the opportunity presents itself. Such a notion of freedom is devoid of content.

Freedom has real meaning, for example, when a situation of temptation arises and one remains God-fearing, steadfast, and in control of one's actions. This holds true even when the temptation produces flickers of desire in a person who nonetheless refrains from indulging. One may also include in the dominant ones, the tongue, which can be a formidable obstacle. There are people, for example, who appear incapable of stopping themselves from backbiting and speaking ill of others, and they often do so without realizing it. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
If it wasn't for faith there would be no living in this world. We couldn't even eat with safety. To me, faith means not worrying.
