Ayahs of the Day:
(Allah) said (to Iblis): "What prevented you from bowing down when I commanded you?" He said: I am better than he; You created me from fire, and him from clay. (Allah) said: "Get down from this (paradise), it is not for you to be arrogant here, Get out, for you are of those humiliated and disgraced." [7: 12,13]

Hadith of the Day:
The just will be with Allah on pulpits of light on the right-hand of the Merciful---and both of His hands are right. Those are the ones who are just in their rulings, with their families and whatever they are incharge of. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
He who honors the world is abased and disgraced on the Day of judgment, but he who disdains it, will then find honor incomparable. [Bishr al Hafi]

Guidance of the Day:
If you find emerging in your heart, when you call to mind the fact that God observes you, a shyness that prevents you from disobeying Him and drives you to exert yourself in obeying Him, you are in possession of something of the realities of vigilance (muraqaba).

Know that vigilance is one of the most noble stations, high positions, and lofty degrees. It is the station of excellence (ihsan), excellence is to worship God as if you saw Him, for if you do not see Him, He sees you. Each believer has faith that nothing on earth or in the heaven is concealed from God, that God is with him wherever he is, and that none of His movements or times of stillness are concealed from Him.

But the important thing is that this awareness be permanent and that its results appear, the least of which is that he does nothing, when alone with God, that he would be ashamed of should a man of virtue see him. This is rare, and it eventually leads to that which is rarer still, whereby the servant is totally immersed in God. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
There is nothing that war has ever achieved that could not have been achieved without it. There was never a good war and a bad peace.All wars are civil wars, because all men are brothers.
