Ayahs of the Day:
Then shall We question those to whom Our Message was sent, and verily We shall recount their whole story with knowledge, for We were never absent (at any time or place). [7: 6,7]

Hadith of the Day:
Beware of dhulm (injustice), for dhulm is darkness on the Day of Resurrection. [
Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Beware of hoping for forgiveness without working for it. Such hopes have deceived some people until they departed from the world bankrupt, and beware of these hopes, they are the valleys of the bankrupt. [Hasan al Basri]

Guidance of the Day:
It is a condition of the sincere intention that behavior does not belie it. For instance a man who seeks knowledge claiming that his intention is to practice and teach it will be proved insincere in his intention if, when he becomes able to, he does not do so. Or a man who pursues the world and claims that he is doing so only that he may be independent of other people and be able to give charity to the needy and help his relatives will be proved ineffectual in his intention should he not do so when able.

Intentions do not affect sins, just as purification does not affect that which is, by its very nature, impure. A man who goes along with another who is slandering a Muslim, then pretends that he only wanted to humor him, is himself a slanderer. Any one who refrains from the enjoining of good and the forbidding of the evil and pretends that he only did so to protect himself from the culprit, is his partner in evildoing. A malicious intention attached to a good deed spoils it and renders it malicious; like wise when one performs good deeds for the sake of wealth and prestige. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
A riot is a spontaneous outburst, a war is subject to advance planning, it is a series of catastrophes which result in victory, it doesn't determine who is right, only who is LEFT.
