Ayahs of the Day:
When you have performed the (congregational) prayers, then remember Allah standing, sitting and reclining. And when you are in safety, observe regular prayers. For such prayers are enjoined on believers at stated times. [4: 103]

Hadith of the Day:
Man says: My property, my property; but O Son of Adam what is for you out of your property only which you ate and it vanished, which you wore and made it worn out and spent in charity and sent it ahead. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Converts need to be dealt with gently. the most important thing is to preserve their Islam. Everything else is secondary. [Shaykh Faraz Rabbani]

Guidance of the Day:
Dignity and honor are gifts. Dignity with God comes to those who are humble before Him. They place value on how they are received by their maker and not by how they will be judged by the ephemeral norms of people. There are many accounts, for example, of people who were once in position of authority and wealth, but now find themselves as paupers completely stripped of their former glory, reduced in many instances. God is powerful over all things, and all good, authority, and provision are in His hand, not ours.

If one is humble before God, He will render him or her honorable. Conversely, God humbles and humiliates the haughty ones, those who arrogantly seek out rank and glory before the eyes of people. The Quran gives the example of Pharaoh and Korah and their abject fall and disgrace. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
Reason is our soul's left hand. Faith her right. Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.
