Ayahs of the Day:
Verily, this is My Way leading straight; follow it; follow not (other) paths; They will scatter you about from His (Great) path; thus does He command you, that you may be righteous. Moreover, We gave Moses the Book, completing (Our favor) to those who would do right, and explaining all things in detail--and a guide and a mercy, that they might believe in the meeting with their Lord. [6: 153,154]

Hadith of the Day:
From the words of the previous prophets that the people still find are: If you feel no shame, then do as you wish. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Never leave an atom's weight of your devotional practice. Never be lenient with yourself in either lax times or times of high resolve. [Ahmad al Zarruq]

Guidance of the Day:
The man who gives his worldly life and his Hereafter equal attention, and has inwardly the same degree of concentration and eagerness and outwardly the same amount of effort and pursuit, is excessively foolish and stupid. What then of the man who gives more attention and effort to his worldly life? And what then of the man who pays no attention at all nor exerts any effort for his life-to-come? We ask God to guard us against this and all other afflictions and dangers and to guard our loved ones and all Muslims!

Those who give their worldly life and their Hereafter equal attention deserve this description because they do not differentiate between that which is better, more permanent, purer, and more spacious, and that which is lowlier, ephemeral, turbid, disturbing, and constricting. They are similar to the one who treats equally diamonds and dung, or pure gold and clay.
It is clearly evident that those who prefer the world to the Hereafter are doubt-ridden skeptics, while those who treat them equally are unintelligent. Only those who prefer the Hereafter are intelligent and resolute believers. [Knowledge and Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
Men have become the tool of their tools. Internet is like flue, it spreads like crazy. Technology is a queer thing. It brings you great gifts with one hand and it stabs you in the back with the other.
