Ayahs of the Day:
(Abraham said) "How should I fear what you associate (with Him) while you do not fear having associated something with God for which He has not sent you down any authority? Which of either group deserve more security, if you know anything?" Those who believe and do not cloak their faith in wrongdoing will feel more secure and will be (better) guided. [6: 81,82]

Hadith of the Day:
By the One in whose hand is my soul, a servant does not truly believe until he loves for his brother what he loves for himself of goodness. [Ahmad]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Every man wakes up in his home / with death nearer to him than the laces of his sandals. [Abu Bakr Siddiq radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
And reflect in abundance, O believer. Reflection is of three kinds. The first is reflection on the wonders of Divine Power and the marvels of the heavenly and earthly kingdoms. And its fruit is gnosis of God.

The second is reflection on the gifts of God and His graces. And its fruit is the love of God. The third is reflection on this world, the next, and the states of creation in both. And its benefit is turning away from this world and becoming attentive to the Hereafter.

If you feel, that your soul, through laziness and sloth, moves away from submission and good actions, then lead it back by the reins of hope, remind it of what God has promised those who obey Him: vast bounty, permanent bliss, grace, and contentment, eternity in the vastness of the Garden, honor, and high rank and eminence accorded by God the Exalted. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
Sports do not build character, they reveal it. The only way to prove that you are a good sport is to lose. You can't win unless you know how to lose.
