Ayahs of the Day:
Leave all sin, open or secret: Those who earn sin will get due recompense for their "earnings." Do not eat of (meats) on which Allah's name has not been pronounced; that would be impiety. But the evil ones ever inspire their friends to argue with you. if you were to obey them, you would become associators (of others in your worship of God Alone). [6: 120, 121]

Hadith of the Day:
Know that if the nation were to gather together to benefit you with something, they would not benefit you with anything except that which Allah has already recorded for you. If they gather to harm you by something, they would not be able to harm you by anything except what Allah has already recorded against you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Since it is a Divine rule that people are mostly governed by the rulers they deserve, their being in a certain manner, mirror images of their society, the worst will be governed by the worst. [Mustafa al Badawi]

Guidance of the Day:
Knowledge, used appropriately becomes wisdom. Wisdom is the ability to place everything in its precisely appropriate location, in the precisely appropriate manner, at the precisely appropriate time. It is also the ability to put first things first. Wisdom is thus the highest mode of operation of the human mind.

There can be no relaxation at all in this world for a believer endowed with reason. Whenever he finds such relaxation, this is always accompanied by heedlessness of his Lord and his appointed time of death. God the Exalted, created the world for the believer as the means to an end, namely provision for the Hereafter and obedience to his Lord. [Knowledge and Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
Formula for success; rise early, work hard. Sweat plus sacrifice equals success. There is no point at which you can say "Well I am successful now, I might as well take a nap."
