Ayahs of the Day:
For every Message is a limit of time, and soon you shall know it. Whenever you see people engaged in vain discourse about Our signs, turn away from them unless they turn to a different theme. If Satan ever makes you forget, then after recollection, do not sit in the company of those who do wrong. [6: 67,68]

Hadith of the Day:
If one of you makes his faith excellent, he will be recorded for every good deed tenfold to seven hundred fold. And for every evil deed he does, he will have recorded one similar to it, until he meets Allah. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Sins in succession slay the heart. Sins are the harbinger of disbelief. [Muhammad ibn Wasi]

Guidance of the Day:
The resentful envy is manifest enmity to God, and opposition to Him in His kingdom. When God the Exalted bestows gifts on some of His servants, it is evidence that He intends them to be given to them and has chosen them for them, for none forces His hand. If the servant wants something different from what his Lord wants, he is discourteous and deserves to come to grief.

Resentful envy can also target things associated with the Hereafter, such as knowledge and virtue. A believer finds strength in his brother. A believer should inwardly desire and outwardly act to gather people on the path to God and help in their submitting to Him. He should not care whether they become better than him or he better than them, for this is given by God, and He, Exalted is He, selects whom He will for His mercy.

The blameworthy qualities of the heart, are many. The origin, foundation, and root of them all is love of this world. Its love is the head of every sin. When the heart is free from it, it becomes healthy and clear, enlightened and fragrant, fit to receive the lights and have the secrets unveiled. [Mutual reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes which can be made in a narrow field. Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.
