Ayahs of the Day:
Give this warning to those in whose (hearts) is the fear that they will be brought (to judgment before their Lord: except for Him they will have no protector nor intercessor; that they may guard (against evil). Send not away those who call on their lord morning and evening, seeking His pleasure. You are not accountable for them, and they are not accountable for you, that you should turn them away, you would be a wrong doer. [6: 51,52]

Hadith of the Day:
Many a person with disheveled hair (and dust-colored) is turned away from the doors, (whereas Allah holds him in such high esteem) that if he were to swear by Allah, Allah would fulfill that for him. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Human suffering is real. However, human perseverance, and human dignity are just as real. They allow us to nobly endure the trials of this world. [Imam Zaid shakir]

Guidance of the Day:
Know that the pursuers of this world are of three kinds: Some pursue it with the intention of giving to relatives and comforting the poor. Such people are considered to be generous and they will be rewarded, if their acts match their intentions.

Others yet have nothing but appetites and pleasures in mind. They are likened to cattle, as God the Exalted has said, Do you think that most of them hear or understand? they are but like cattle, they are even more astray. (25:44)

Others frequently pursue worldly things for the purpose of boast, bragging, and rivalry. These folk are considered illusioned fools or, worse still, the ruined losers: And your Lord knows what their breasts hide and what they reveal. (28:69). Counsel yourself honestly and do not betray yourself by feigning something you do not really intend. For you will have combined bankruptcy with false pretense and will lose both this world and the next: This is a manifest loss (39:15) [Mutual Reminding---Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
Courage is fear that has said its prayer. Prayer doesn't change God but it changes him who prays. We have just enough religion to hate each other, but not enough to love one another.
