Ayahs of the Day:
Say; "Allah's guidance is the (only) guidance, and we have been directed to submit ourselves to the Lord of the worlds. To establish regular prayers and to fear Allah; for it is to Him that we shall be gathered together." It is He who created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions): The day He will say, "Be," Behold! it is. His word is the truth. His will be the dominion the day the trumpet will be blown. He knows the unseen as well as that which is open. For He is the Wise, well-acquainted (with all things). [6:71,72,73]

Hadith of the Day:
The parable of the believers with respect to their love, mercy and compassion for one another is like that of the body: if one of its limbs is hurting, the remainder of the body is afflicted by sleeplessness and fever. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Ignorance is a fire that burns a person's religion. And its extinguishing water is knowledge. [Shaykh Ali ibn Abi Bakr]

Guidance of the Day:
Know that hearing and sight are two open doors, whatever enters through them reaches the heart. How many a thing does a person hear and see, which he should not have, but that once they have entered the heart, it proves difficult to remove them? For the heart is rapidly affected by what enters it, then the effect is difficult to erase.

Let the believer then be careful to protect his hearing and eyesight, and strive to restrain all his senses and his limbs from sins and from what is in excess of the necessary. Let him beware of looking with approval at the ornaments of this world, for its outward is deception and its inward is a lesson in wisdom. The eye looks at its deceptive manifestations, but the heart looks at the lesson hidden within.

Look at the creatures with an eye that sees them as evidence of their Creator's perfect power. Every creation says with the tongue of its state, "There is no God but God, the August, the Wise." This is what the people of enlightened hearts---who perceive by the light of God--can hear. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
Science is wonderfully equipped to answer the question "HOW"? But it gets terribly confused when asked the question "WHY"?
