Ayah of the Day:
It is He Who has made you (His) agents, inheritors of the earth; He has raised you in ranks, some above others; that He may try you in the gifts He has given you: For your Lord is quick in punishment; yet He is indeed Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful. [6: 165]

Hadith of the Day:
Charity does not in any way decrease wealth. Spend, and you shall be spend upon. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
God has concealed three within three: He has concealed His good pleasure in His obedience; therefore despise no act of obedience lest His good pleasure be within it. And He has concealed His abhorrence in acts of rebellion against Him; therefore underestimate no act of rebellion lest His abhorrence be therein. And He has concealed His friends in His creation, therefore despise none of His creatures, for he may be a Friend of God. [Ali Zain al Abidin]

Guidance of the Day:
Strengthen and improve your certainty. For when certainty prevails in the heart and establishes itself therein the unseen becomes as if seen. Certainty is power, firmness and stability of faith so great that it becomes as a towering mountain which no doubts can shake and no illusions rock. Rather doubts and illusions disappear completely, and when they come from outside are neither listened to by the ear nor heeded by the heart. The Devil does not approach the possessor of such certainty.

Certainty derives its power and excellence from many things. The first, most essential and pivotal of these is that the servant listen attentively with his heart as well as his ears to verses and hadiths relating to God, His Majesty, Perfection, Magnitude, and Grandeur, His Uniqueness in creating and deciding, ruling and compelling; Likewise to the truthfulness and perfection of the Messengers, the miracles they were aided with, and the sundry chastisements which befell those who opposed them. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Gather provision for the inescapable, mankind has an appointment at the Resurrection, will it please you to be with those whose provision is abundant, while yours is amiss?
