Ayahs of the Day:
Is someone who has been dead and whom We revived and granted light to, so he may walk among people with it, to be compared to someone who is in such darkness he cannot leave it? Thus anything they have been doing seems attractive to disbelievers.Thus We have placed leaders in every town, who are its criminals, to plot therein; But they only plot against their own souls, and they do not perceive it. [6: 122,123]

Hadith of the Day:
Be mindful of Allah, you will find Him in front of you. Be beloved to Allah during times of prosperity, He will know you in times of adversity. Know that what has passed you by was never to befall you. And what has befallen you was never to have passed you by. And Know that victory accompanies perseverance, relief accompanies affliction, and ease accompanies hardship. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Actions are but lifeless forms, and their life is the sincerity within them. [Ibn Ataillah]

Guidance of the Day:
When a person of taqwa and good conduct is stricken with poverty, his state with God will be that of acceptance. He will be content, patient, scrupulous, independent of others, and show many other noble attributes. His share of God's graces will be to receive His good pleasure, nearness, reinforcement with patience and assistance, and other divine graces. In his dealings with people he will keep his situation concealed and appear fine.

The same poverty, when it falls an ill-behaved and corrupt person, will insult in anguish, anger, envy, and covetousness. What he receives from God will be wrath and aversion, and there will be no assistance with patience and strength. He will be despised among people for his neediness and be censured for making bad choices and for the fact that he is unable to cater his needs while maintaining his honesty. [Knowledge and Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
Success is simple, do what's right, the right way, at the right time. Always remember that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other. There is nothing to fear but the fear itself.
