Ayah of the Day:
O Children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you, in the same manner as he got your parents out of the Garden, stripping them of their raiment, to expose their shame; for he and his tribe watch you from a position where you cannot see them; We made the evil ones friend (only) to those without faith. [7: 27]

Hadith of the Day:
No Muslim plants a plant or sows seeds and has a bird, human or animal eat from it except that it will be for him as a charitable act. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The attentiveness of a servant is equal to his love for his Lord. Love is consequent upon knowledge, as much as one grows more knowledgeable of Him, so also shall love Him more and worship Him more abundantly. [Abdallah ibn al Alawi al Haddad]

Guidance of the Day:
You must take care of your outward and inward cleanliness, for the one who is completely clean becomes inwardly and in his spirit a spiritual angel, although in his body and outward form he remains a physical human being.

Inward cleanliness is achieved by purifying the soul from vile traits of character such as pride, ostentation, envy, love of the world, and other similar things, and by adorning it with noble traits of character such as humility, modesty, sincerity, generosity, and so forth.

As for the outward cleanliness, this depends on avoiding transgressions, and keeping to obedience. The one who adorns his outward with perseverance in good works, and his inward with taking on praiseworthy attributes, has completed his cleanliness. Otherwise, he would only have a share of it proportionate to his remoteness from reprehensible traits and acts, and nearness to good ones. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Wisdom out weighs any wealth. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom, turn your wounds into wisdom. Wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age, sometimes age just shows up all by itself.
