Ayahs of the Day:
Before you We sent (Messengers) to many nations, and We afflicted the nations with suffering and adversity, that they might learn humility. When the suffering reached them from Us, why then did they not learn humility? On the contrary their hearts became hardened, and Satan made their (sinful) acts seem alluring to them. [6: 42,43]

Hadith of the Day:
There are three things that if a person adheres to them, they purify his heart from any form of treachery or evil: making his deeds purely for the sake of Allah, being sincere with those in authority and sticking to the Muslim community as (its members) supplications encompass each other. [Ahmad, al Daarimi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
One does not attain unto the reality of faith until one has four traits: performing all obligatory acts in accordance with the sunnah; Eating only the lawful with scrupulousness; Avoiding all prohibited matters, whether outward or inward; And remaining steadfast on the above till death. [Imam Ghazali]

Guidance of the Day:
Consuming illicit and doubtful food inevitably hinders obedience and invites transgression. Refrain from eating the illicit, for this is obligatory, and the suspect, for this is dictated by scrupulousness. And seek only the licit, for this is an obligation among the other obligations.

When you obtain licit food and clothes, eat with moderation and dress with moderation. Do not be excessive, for the licit does not bear excessiveness. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said, "He who eats halal (permissible), his members obey, whether he wishes it or not: but he who eats haram (forbidden), his members sin, whether he wishes it or not." And, "Eat what you will, for that is how you will act." People are severed from the truth and excluded from the circle of sainthood only because they do not scrutinize what they eat. [Mutual reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right. Those who stand for nothing, fall for anything.
