Ayahs of the Day:
And this is a book which We have revealed as a blessing: so follow it and be righteous, that you may receive mercy; Lest you should say: "The Book was sent down to two People before us, and for our part, we remained unacquainted with all that they learned by assiduous study;" [6: 155,156]

Hadith of the Day:
All of my nation are apt to be forgiven except for those who commit sins openly. Included among those who commits sins openly is where a person performs a deed during the night and, although Allah had concealed that sin, in the morning he says, 'O so and so, last night I did such and such.' He spent the night being concealed by Allah and in the morning he uncovered Allah's concealment from himself. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
He who neglects teaching his son or guiding towards what would avail him, and leaves him uselessly, has done him the biggest assault. [Ibn al Qayyim]

Guidance of the Day:
The ailments of the heart are, in many ways and from many different points of view, more harmful, dangerous, repugnant, and hideous than those of the body. Most harmful and dangerous is the fact that the ailments of the heart affect a man's religion (which is his capital for happiness in this world and the next) and that they damage his Hereafter, which is the life of permanence and eternity.

Physical illness, on the other hand, harms a man's worldly life, which is ephemeral and quick to end, and harms his body, which is a target for afflictions and rapid destruction. Furthermore, physical illness may be great gift to one's religion and to one's future life, for God has made great rewards and numerous immediate and delayed benefits as the consequences of illness, as is evident from many Quranic verses and hadiths. [Knowledge and Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
Men talk about killing time, while time is quietly killing them. Let him know who would enjoy a good future, waste none of his present.
