Ayahs of the Day:
Those who do their duty are not accountable for them (i.e.the heedless) in any way except to remind them, so that they (in turn) may do their duty. Stay away from those who take their religion as a sport and amusement, and are deceived by the life of this world. Remind (them) of it lest any soul become reckless because of what he has earned; he will have no patron nor any other intercessor besides God. If it offered every ransom, none will be accepted; such is (the end of) those who deliver themselves to ruin by their own acts; they will have for drink (only) boiling water, and suffer painful torment because of how they persisted in rejecting Allah. [6: 69, 70]

Hadith of the Day:
Whoever loves to be saved from the Fire and entered into Paradise should die with belief in Allah and the Last Day and should treat the people in the way that he wishes to be treated by them. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
There is no enemy worse than ignorance. A man is the enemy of that which he has no knowledge of. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
The believer should strive to restrain his senses and limbs from transgressions and sins, and only use them in obedience. He should only use them in those things which would benefit him in the Hereafter. He should take great care in guarding his tongue, for its size is small, but its crimes are great. Let him prevent it from lying, backbiting, and other forms of forbidden speech.

Let him beware of lewdness, and of delving into what does not concern him, even if it were not forbidden, for it hardens the heart and wastes time. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "The speech of the Son of Adam will be counted against him, not for him, except for enjoining good, forbidding evil, and remembering God." Thus a believer should not only move his tongue in reciting the Quran, the remembrance of God, giving advice to a Muslim, enjoining good, and forbidding evil, but also only for those worldly things that relate to the Hereafter. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners}

Food for Thought:
Humans love to wonder, and that is the seed of science. Science does not know its debt to imagination. Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
