Ayahs of the Day:
And he (Satan) swore to them both, that he was their sincere adviser. So by deceit he brought about their fall: when they tasted of the tree, their shame became manifest to them, and they began to sew together the leaves of the Garden over their bodies. And their Lord called unto them: "Did I not forbid you that tree, and tell you that Satan was an avowed enemy unto you?" [7: 21,22]

Hadith of the Day:
Every act of goodness is an act of charity. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Anyone who thinks that through his efforts he will arrive is tiring himself; and anyone who thinks that without effort he will arrive is indulging in wishful thinking. [ Abu Saeed al Karraz]

Guidance of the Day:
You must hold fast to the Book and the sunna. Take refuge in them, for they are the upright religion of God, and His straight path. Those who adhere to them find safety, profit, guidance and protection, while those who deviate from them go astray, grieve lose, and are broken. Let them govern you and control what you do, and consult them in your every affair, in obedience to the counsel of God and that of His Messenger.

If it pleases you to be well-guided along the white road in which there is neither crookedness nor curvature, then measure all your intentions, traits, acts, and words against the Book and sunna, then retain whatever conforms to them and abandon whatever does not. And always be cautious and follow the better alternative. never innovate in religion, nor follow the ways of the non-believers, or else you will lose both this world and the Hereafter. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
There is a wisdom of the head and a wisdom of the heart. By three methods we may learn wisdom: first by reflection, which is noblest; second by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is bitterest.
