Ayahs of the Day:
Thus did We try some of them with others, that they should say: "Is it these then that Allah has favored from amongst us?" Does not Allah know best those who are grateful? When those come to you who believe in Our Signs, say: "Peace be on you, your Lord has inscribed for Himself (the rule) of mercy: verily, if any of you did evil in ignorance, and thereafter repented, and amended (his conduct), he is Oft Forgiving, Most Merciful. Thus do We explain the Signs in detail; that the way of sinners be shown up. [6: 53,54,55]

Hadith of the Day:
Leave what makes you doubt for that which does not make you doubt. Verily, truth is tranquility and falsehood is doubt. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
This world is the abode of works; there are no rewards in it. The Hereafter is the abode of rewards, there are no works in it. So act in the abode of no rewards for the sake of the abode of no works. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
A person on the path to God should begin with sound repentance from all his sins. If he has treated unjustly any of God's creation, he should correct this by giving everyone their due. If this is not possible, he should ask them to release him from those obligations. Whoever is encumbered with debts to creation cannot proceed towards the Real.

It is a condition for sound repentance that one feel sincere remorse for his sins and be wholly determined not to repeat such actions as long as he lives. If he does not refrain from them, or is still harboring the intention to repeat them, his repentance is false.

He should be extremely aware of his shortcomings towards his Lord. When these shortcomings bring him sadness and his heart breaks, let him know that God is with him, for He says, Transcendent is He, "I am with those whose hearts break for My sake." [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is.
