Ayahs of the Day:
And He is Allah in the heavens and on earth. He knows what you hide, and what you reveal, and He knows The (recompense) which you earn (by your deeds). But never did a single one of the signs of their Lord reach them, but they turned away therefrom. And now they reject the truth when it reaches them, but soon shall they learn the reality of what they used to mock at. [6: 3,4,5]

Hadith of the Day:
A people do not keep from giving the zakah on their wealth except that they will be kept from having rain falling from the sky. If it were not for the animals, it would not rain at all. [Ibn Majah]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Whoever holds themselves to the sunnah, shall speak with wisdom, and whoever holds to their whims shall speak with reprehensible innovations. [Ismail Haqqi]

Guidance of the Day:
The good of both this world and the next are promised by god to those who fear Him. There are other beautiful and good things, immense favors and generous gifts promised to God fearing. It is sufficient honor with regard to taqwa that God the Exalted mentions it more than ninety times in His Book.

The merits of taqwa and of those who possess it are beyond enumeration. Imam Ghazali has said, :"Taqwa in the Quran has three meanings. First is fear and a sense of awe. The second include obedience and worship. Third is freeing the heart from sins, which is the reality and essence of taqwa."

In summary, taqwa is a guard against the anger of God and His punishment by fulfilling His commandments and abstaining from what He has made prohibited. The reality of taqwa is that your lord never sees you where he has forbidden you to be, nor does he miss you where He has commanded you to be." [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
More marriages might survive if the partners realize that sometimes the better comes after the worse. Marriage, like money is still with us, and like money, progressively devalued. A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
