Ayahs of the Day:
He (Iblis) said: "Give me respite till the day they are raised up." (Allah) said: "Be you among those who have respite. (Iblis) said: "Because You have sent me astray, I will lie in wait for them on Your straight Way. [7: 14,15,16]

Hadith of the Day:
Allah's hand is full. (its fullness) is not affected by continuous spending day and night. Do you not see what He spent since He created the Heavens and the Earth? All of it did not decrease what is in His hand. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Satisfaction is wealth that never runs out. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
You must, improve your inward aspect until it becomes better than your virtuous outward appearance, for the former is where the gaze of the Real obtains, while the latter is where the envious gaze of creation is to be found. God never mentioned the inward and the outward in His Book without beginning with the inward. And the Prophet used to pray, (may peace and blessings be upon him) "O God! Make my inward better than my outward, and make my outward virtuous."

When the inward is good the outward is inevitably so, for the outward always follows the inward, whether for good or evil. The Messenger of God, (may blessings and peace be upon him) has said: "In the body lies a small piece of flesh; when it is good the rest of the body is good also, and when it is corrupt the rest of the body becomes corrupt also; It is the heart." [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
The tragedy of war is that it uses man's best to do man's worst. War is only a cowardly escape from the problems of peace. It is a moral and political disaster, a terrible cancer eating away at the soul of our nation.
