Ayah of the Day:
And insult not those whom they worship besides Allah, lest they insult Allah wrongfully without knowledge. Thus We have made fair-seeming to each people its own doings; In the end will they return to their Lord, and We shall then inform them of all that they used to do. [6: 108]

Hadith of the Day:
Whatever causes the blood to flow and has had Allah's name mentioned (upon it), you may eat. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Spiritual courage is to wage war against one's egotism and to resist one's appetites. Moral courage is to speak the truth even when bitter, to be a witness for the truth even against oneself or one's kin, and to enjoin good and forbid evil against opposition. [Mustafa al Badawi]

Guidance of the Day:
Disputes, in whatever manner they appear, should be resolved immediately. Human life being what it is, there is no guarantee as to who will be carried into the grave first. At the occasion of death friends and enemies all gather to mourn anyway.

It is best that one's heart is cleansed of all grudges regarding all Muslims. Soothe the angry heart of others and see how tranquil life becomes. The weightiness in one's heart is removed. Always act towards amending relationships, as a result one will attain barakah in one's time and position.

The primary act which ends disputes is admitting one's faults. If it is your fault then admit it and take account of your faults. It is essential to recognize the excesses one has taken to transgress upon others. Ultimately, the greatest reality of life is the recognition of one's faults. The secret to all forms of betterment in life lies in this recognition, because man always errs, if he does not recognize his faults, then there is no other recourse for his betterment.

Recognition is the door to all successes, but seldom is that man will subject himself to it, when such an occasion arises it becomes a matter of ego. Instead of admitting his fault, he attempts to cover it. The result is that this fault of his continues to grow unchecked. [The journey to success on the road of life]

Food for Thought:
Don't confuse fame with success. A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him. Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence is the quality that most frequently makes for success.
