Ayahs of the Day:
So when he (Abraham) saw the sun rising (again), he said: "Will this be my lord? This is (even) greater." As it set, he said: "My people, I am innocent of what you associate (with God)! I have turned my face enquiringly to Him Who originated Heaven and Earth. I am no associator." His people argued with him. He said: "Are you arguing with me concerning God, while He has guided me? I do not fear what you associate with Him, unless my Lord should wish for something else. My Lord comprises everything in knowledge. Will you not (yourselves) be admonished. [6: 78,79,80]

Hadith of the Day:
The believer's shade on the Day of Resurrection will be the charity he or she has given. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
What I fear most for you is that you follow your passions and have long hopes. Following passions repels from the truth; and having long hopes causes you to forget the Hereafter. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
O believer, strive to your utmost to make your performance of the five Prayers satisfactory, and do that by making your standing, recitation, humility, bowing, prostrations, and the Prayers' other obligations and sunnas complete in every way.

Before entering into Prayer, bring to your heart the awesomeness of the One you wish to stand before, Majestic and High is He. Beware of communing with the King of kings, the subduer of tyrants, with a distracted heart, deeply lost in the valleys of unawareness and whisperings, roaming the places of incidental thoughts and worldly ideas.

Know that the essence and meaning of worship is presence with God. Acts of worship which are devoid of presence are like dust, easily blown away. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
Science has made us gods even before we are worthy of being human beings. Anybody who has been seriously engaged in scientific work of any kind realizes that over the entrance of the temple of science are written the words; "YOU MUST HAVE FAITH."
