Ayahs of the Day:
O you assembly of jinn and mankind! "Did not there come to you messengers from amongst you, reciting unto you My Verses and warning you of the meeting of this Day of yours?" They will say: "We bear witness against ourselves." It was the life of this world that deceived them. and they will bear witness against themselves that they rejected faith. (The messengers were sent) thus, for your Lord would not destroy, for their wrong doing men's habitations while their occupants were unwarned. [6: 130,131]

Hadith of the Day:
Everything has a reality to it. The servant does not reach the reality of faith until he knows that what reached him was not going to miss him and what missed him was not going to reach him. [Ahmad]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The Devil does not really care what you are doing as long as it is either sinful or at the very least wasteful. He will thus whisper one suggestion after the other until one of them is accepted and acted upon. [Mustafa al Badawi]

Guidance of the Day:
If you wish to know which sciences and acts are the most important and beneficial for you, imagine that you were to die the next day and return to God to stand before Him and be asked to account for your knowledge, behavior, and all your affairs and states, subsequently taken to either the Garden or the Fire. what you see there as most important and useful to you is precisely what you must now give priority and attachment to; whereas what you find useless, unimportant, frivolous, or simply of no great necessity is what you must neither pursue nor occupy yourself with in this life.

Meditate on this matter and reflect well; it is of tremendous benefit to those who have discernment and are concerned about their appointed time, their return to God, their salvation, and their success in the Hereafter, which is better and more enduring (Quran,87:17) [Knowledge and Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome. The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic and self complacent is erroneous; on the other hand it makes them, for the most part humble, tolerant and kind.
