Ayahs of the Day:
Obey Allah, and obey the Messenger, and beware (of evil); If you do turn back, know that it is Our Messenger's duty to proclaim (the message) in the clearest manner. On those who believe and do deeds of righteousness there is no blame for what they ate (in the past), when they guard themselves from evil, and believe, and do deeds of righteousness again, guard themselves from evil and believe again, guard themselves from evil and do good, for Allah loves those who do good. [5: 92,93]

Hadith of the Day:
You do not spend anything for the sake of Allah's countenance except that you will be rewarded for it, even (the food) that you put in the mouth of your wife. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
How often is a small action made tremendous through its intention, and how often is a tremendous action rendered small through its intention. [Al Harith al Muhasabi]

Guidance of the Day:
It is said that whoever occupies himself with insignificant things, then important things will bypass him. When intelligence is complete, then speech becomes rare. Speech is a necessary evil, but silence is salvation. So when you have to talk, do not be prolific. You will never once regret of your silence, but oftentimes you will repent your speech.

Early rising is blessed since it increases all kinds of good things, especially sustenance. Yet the most influential factor in bringing about sustenance is the performance of prayer with reverence, humility, modesty and proper positioning of the body--as are the rest of the obligatory aspects pertaining to prayer. One should not engage in vain discourse that is of no benefit to one's religious or worldly affairs. [Instruction of the student---The method of learning]

Food for Thought:
Where there is love there is life. Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruits. The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but hold hands. If you judge people, you have no time to love them. Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.
