Ayahs of the Day:
Between them shall be a veil, and on the Heights will be men who would know everyone by his marks; they will call out to the Companions of the Garden, "Peace on you": They have not yet entered it even though they long to. When their sight is shifted towards the inmates of the Fire, they will say: "Our Lord, do not place us alongside such wrongdoing folk!" [7: 46,47]

Hadith of the Day:
Verily, Allah, the Exalted, has prescribed the obligatory deeds, so do not neglect them. He has set the limits, so do not go beyond them. He has forbidden some things, so do not violate them. And He has been silent about some things, out of mercy upon you and not out of forgetfulness, so do not seek after them. [Baihaqi & Haakim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The heart which is free from rancor is pleased with its Lord. No happiness can be attained by the heart which is not happy with his Lord. [Habib Ajmi]

Guidance of the Day:
Be loyal to your parents, for this is a most certain duty. Beware of severing your ties with them, which is one of the greatest sins. You must, therefore seek to make them pleased with you, and obey them except in committing sinful things or omitting obligations. Prefer them to yourself and give their affairs priority over your own. Disloyalty includes withholding from them any good that you are able to bring them, as well as frowning and chiding.

Parents should help their children to be loyal to them by not insisting on every one of their rights, especially in these days when loyalty is scarce, evil rife. Respect your ties of kinship and start with the closest to you; give generously of the good things you have and start with the nearest. Maintaining ties of kinship and kind behavior towards neighbors will not be complete unless one refrains from harming them, endures the harming they do, and does good to them according to the means at one's disposal. [The Book of Guidance]

Food for Thought:
Remember that time waits for no one. Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a GIFT, that is why it is called "THE PRESENT".
