Ayah of the Day:
It is He Who sends water from the sky. Thus We bring forth plants of every type with it; We produce vegetation of all kinds: from some We produce green (crops), out of which We produce grain, Heaped up (at harvest); out of the date palm, clusters close at hand produced from its pollen, as well as orchards full of grapes, olives and pomegranates, Each similar (in kind) yet different (in variety): Look at their fruit as He causes it to grow and ripen. In that are signs for folk who believe. [6: 99]

Hadith of the Day:
You must refrain from lying for lying leads to wickedness. And verily, wickedness leads to Fire. A person continues lying and seeking falsehood until he is recorded with Allah as a liar. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
This world is a bridge so cross it; do not build on it! The love of this world and that of the Hereafter cannot be united in the believing heart, just as water and fire cannot be united in a single vessel. [Jesus (Peace Be Upon Him).

Guidance of the Day:
A believer is one who observes limits, keeps his promises, is content with what he has, is patient when deprived, is thankful in prosperity, patiently endures afflictions and bitter decrees, praises his Lord in ease and in hardship, and remains true to Him in private and public.

A believer is one who is not enslaved by other than God, nor by events; he is one who is neither vanquished by appetites nor dominated by habits. His words are invocation and wisdom, his silence reflection and heeding examples. His actions precede his words and are proof of his knowledge.

His inner garment is reverence and gravity, his cloak humility and modesty. He follows truth and prefers it, and rejects falsehood and denounces it. He loves the best of people and is not their enemy. Dealing with him proves him better than his reputation. He helps others abundantly, but his own demands are slight. He is far from frivolousness. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]

Food for Thought:
A people that values its privileges above its principles soon loses both. It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.
