Ayahs of the Day:
We send the Messengers only to give good news and to warn; so those who believe and mend (their lives)--upon them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. But those who reject Our sings--them shall punishment touch, for they ceased not from transgressing. [6: 48,49]

Hadith of the Day:
Verily Allah, the Exalted, is pure and accepts only that which is pure. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Whoever builds his outward form upon following the sunnah, his internal form upon perpetual contemplation and awareness of Allah, he restrains his soul from following desires, he lowers his gaze from the forbidden things and he always eats the lawful things, then his perception and insight shall never be wrong. [Ibn Shuja al Kirmani]

Guidance of the Day:
This world is of three kinds: one leading to reward; another leading to being asked to account; and the third leading to torment.

As for that life leading to reward, it is one in which you work for and attain good and escape all evil. The world is the riding mount of the believer and the tilling ground of the Hereafter. This consists of necessities that are lawfully acquired.

As for that which leads one to being asked to account, it is the life which neither prevents you from an obligation nor induces you to indulge in transgression. This is the kind of worldly situation which leads to protracted reckoning in the Hereafter. It is that of the rich whom the poor will precede into the Garden by half a day, which is five hundred years.

As for that which leads to torment, it is living a life that prevents you from your obligations or lures you into transgression. For its owner, this life is provision for the Fire and his path to the abode of ruin. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
I never knew worship until I knew how to love. Let our religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair. Religion is essentially the art and the theory of the remaking of man. Man is not a finished creation.
