Ayahs of the Day:
Surely they have disbelieved who say: " Allah is Jesus, son of Mary." But Jesus said; "O children of Israel! Worship Allah my Lord and your Lord." Verily whoever sets up partners with Allah, then Allah has forbidden paradise to him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the wrongdoers there are no helpers. Surely, disbelievers are those who said: "Allah is the third of the three (in a Trinity). But there is no God but one God--Allah. And if they cease not from what they say, verily a painful torment will befall on the disbelievers among them. [5:72,73]

Hadith of the Day:
My Ummah (followers) will be called on the Day of Judgment as a people with bright faces and limbs, this being the effect of their practice of ablution. Therefore any one of you who wish to increase his brightness, should do so (by making ablutions thoroughly). [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Silence is wisdom, though few are silent. [Luqman radi Allahu anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
It is essential for believers not to hope for anything unless it comes from God and not to fear anything except from God Himself. In ignoring this, one violates the ordinances of the Law, since he who sins against God out of fear of human beings actually fears someone other than God. But if he does not sin against God out of fear of his fellow men, and thus observes the ordinances of sacred Law, then he fears no one other than God. The same principle applies to hope.

A person who devotes himself to learning God's religion, God Almighty gives him sufficient care and provides for him in unexpected ways. It is essential in the search for knowledge to reduce one's attachment to worldly affairs as much as one can. It is necessary for everyone to occupy himself with good deeds so that the soul does not concern itself with mundane desires. The intelligent man should not be eager for the affairs of this world, since this kind of anxiety and grief does not avert calamity and is really of no use. [Instruction of the student--The method of learning]

Food for Thought:
Life is half spent before we know what it is. Life is like a blanket too short, you pull it up and your toes rebel, you yank it down and your shoulders shiver, but cheerful folks manage to draw their knees up and pass a very comfortable night.
