Ayahs of the Day:
Say: Who saves you from darkness on land and at sea, When you call upon Him in humility and in the secrecy of the heart, 'If He will rescue us from this, we shall truly show our gratitude?' Say: It is Allah that saves you from these and all (other) distresses: and yet you still associate others with Him. [6: 63,64]

Hadith of the Day:
By the one in whose hand is my soul, you must order good and forbid evil or Allah will soon send upon you a punishment from Himself and then you will supplicate to Him and He will not respond to you. [Ahmad & Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
He whose capital is the fear of God, tongues grow weary in describing his profits. [Al-A'Mash]

Guidance of the Day:
Among the worst sins of the heart are arrogance, ostentation, and resentful envy. Arrogance is a proof of great foolishness, excessive ignorance, and stupidity. If he possesses virtues and good qualities, they are but gracious gifts from God; a person can achieve nothing by his own power, neither can he acquire anything through his own strength and cleverness.

When he behaves with arrogance towards the servants of God, employing therein the gifts that God has graciously bestowed on him, does he not fear that by behaving discourteously and attributing to himself what belongs to God, He would take away everything from him? Prominence and greatness are attributes of God, the Compeller, the Supreme. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
The saddest part of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than it gathers wisdom.
There is more to life than increasing its speed.
