Ayahs of the Day:
And those who reject Our signs and treat them with arrogance--they are companions of the Fire, to dwell therein (forever). Who is more unjust than one who invents a lie against Allah or rejects His Signs? For such, their portion appointed must reach them from the Book (of Decrees): Until, when Our messengers (of death) arrive and take their souls, they say: "Where are the things that you used to invoke besides Allah?" They will reply, "They have left us in the lurch," and they will bear witness against themselves, that they had rejected Allah. [7: 36,37]

Hadith of the Day:
The best prayer after the obligatory prayer is that during the depths of the night. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
He who takes pride in his good deeds is in sin, and he who is ashamed of his evil deeds is in obedience. [Imam Ja'afar al Sadiq]

Guidance of the Day:
Whenever you enjoin good and forbid evil and are not listened to you must leave the place where evil is being committed and those who commit it until they return to God's ordinance. Likewise you must detest sins and those who persist in committing them, and abhor them for the sake of God; this being a duty for all Muslims.

When you become angry because you were wronged or insulted, and this shows on your face and you find that your loathing of that deed and the person who did it are more than your loathing of any evil that you see or hear about, then know for certain that your faith is weak, and your honor and wealth are dearer to you than your religion. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Great ideas originate in the muscles. The best preparation of good work tomorrow is good work today. All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
