Ayah of the Day:
Have they not seen how many generations We wiped out whom We had established on earth before them in a way We did not establish you? We sent (water down from) the sky upon them in torrents and let rivers flow beneath them; and yet We wiped them out because of their offenses and raised up other generations to succeed them. [5: 6]

Hadith of the Day:
Hurry to perform the Hajj, that is, the obligatory one, as none of you knows what may happen to him. [Ahmad]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Whoever truly follows the Prophet (peace be upon him) do not have their own choice in matters. Rather, nothing stirs in their hearts except that which Allah and His messenger love. [Sahl al Tustari]

Guidance of the Day:
Those possessed of sound hearts and upright minds know that they will be requited for what they do in this life, that they will reap what they sow, that they will be judged just as they judge others, and that they are heading toward that which they have forwarded for themselves.

How can such people not know this or fail to be certain of this when what they believe and trust in comes from what they hear in the perfect revelation of God and the utterances of his Prophet (peace be upon him)? They are sources that impart conviction and certitude in one's whose heart God illuminates and whose breast He dilates. So be present of heart and attentive of ear and listen to what may awaken you from your heedlessness and rouse you from your slumber.

Act well for your own good, and save yourself "On a day when no wealth shall avail, nor children, save those who come to God with a sound heart" (26:88,89) [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
The difficulty with a marriage is that we fall in love with a personality, but we live with a character. What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much as how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.
