Ayahs of the Day:
It is Allah Who causes the grain and the date stone to split and sprout. He causes the living to issue from the dead, and He is the One to cause the dead to issue from the living. That is Allah: then how are you deluded away from the truth? He it is that cleaves the daybreak (from the dark): He makes the night for rest and tranquility, and the sun and moon for the reckoning (of time): Such is the judgment and ordering of Him, the Exalted in Power, the Omniscient. [6: 95,96]

Hadith of the Day:
The person who guides to what is good shall have the same reward as the one who performs that (good). [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Let your gazing at this world be a lesson, your renunciation of it a choice, and your taking from it a necessity. [Yahya ibn Mu'adh]

Guidance of the Day:
Remove from your heart the fear of poverty and the expectation that one day you may need people. Beware of directing your whole attention to such matters. Trust in your Lord's promise and His providing for you. He says, Exalted is He, Nothing walks the earth but that God provides for it (Quran, 11:16). And you are one of those who walk the earth, so occupy yourself with what He has commanded you rather than with what He has already guaranteed for you, for your Lord never forgets you.

He has informed you that provision is with Him and commanded you to seek it from Him by acts of worship. He has said, Exalted is He, Seek provision from God, and worship Him, and be thankful to him. To Him shall you return (Quran, 29:17). Do you not see how He provides for those who reject Him and worship other than Him? Will He not provide for the believers who worship Him alone? When He provides for those who sin and disobey, will He not provide for the obedient ones who remember and thank Him in abundance? [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
We are living in a world today where lemonade is made from artificial flavors and furniture polish is made from real lemons.
