Ayahs of the Day:
Say: "He is able to send torment down upon you or from underneath your feet, or to confuse you with factions and make some of you experience the violence of others." Watch how We handle signs so that they may understand. Even so your folk reject it although it is the Truth. [6: 65, 66]

Hadith of the Day:
Part of the perfection of a person's Islam is his leaving that which is of no concern to him. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
People honor themselves with nothing better than obedience to God, nor do they debase themselves with anything worse than disobedience to God. [Sa'id ibn al Musayyab]

Guidance of the Day:
The presence of ostentation is proof that the heart is devoid of the vastness and majesty of God because it seeks the approval of creatures through feigning and is not content with the knowledge that God, the Lord of creation, knows all that he does.

The one who performs good deeds and likes it to be known, so that people would revere and serve him, is an ignorant hypocrites whose desire is but for this world. The detached person is one who finds it repugnant when people offer him reverence and wealth, and seeks to avoid them.

Who can be more ignorant than the one who seeks the Hereafter by acts of this world? If he is unable to renounce the world, he should seek it from its Owner. The hearts of the creation are in the hand of God; He makes them incline toward the one who seeks Him, and He makes them serve him. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
Only a brave person is willing to honestly admit, and fearlessly face, what a sincere and logical mind discovers. Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.
