Ayah of the Day:
"And behold! you have come to Us bare and alone as We created you for the first time. You have left behind you all (the favors) which We bestowed on you; We do not see with you intercessors whom you thought to be partners in your affairs; so now all relations between you have been cut off, and what you have been claiming has merely led you astray! " [6: 94]

Hadith of the Day:
"Shall I not inform you of a deed which is more virtuous than fasting, prayer and giving in charity?" They said, "Certainly, O Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him)." He said, "It is that you make things right between people. Spoiling the relations between people is the cutter [that destroys]." [Abu Dawood]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Had the world been made of perishable gold and the Hereafter of permanent clay, we should have preferred permanent clay to perishable gold. What, then, when the world is ephemeral clay and the Hereafter permanent gold. [Al Fudayl ibn Iyad]

Guidance of the Day:
Strive to purify your heart both from the fear of people and from putting your hopes in them, for this would make you remain silent when faced with falsehood, compromise your religion, and neglect enjoining good forbidding evil. This would be ample humiliation. A believer is strong by his Lord; He feels no fear nor hope except with regard to Him.

Think well of your Lord. Think that He will help you fulfill your needs, guard and protect you, and entrust you neither to creation nor to yourself. He has informed us that He is as good to His servant as His servant thinks Him to be. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both. Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of values.
