Ayahs of the Day:
The men on the Heights will call to certain men whom they will know from their marks, saying: "Of what profit to you were your hoards and your arrogant ways? Behold! are these not the men whom you swore that Allah with His Mercy would never bless? Enter the Garden: no fear shall be upon you, nor shall you grieve. [7: 48,49]

Hadith of the Day:
Be aloof from the world and Allah will love you. Be aloof from what people possess and the people will love you. [ibn Maajah & Tabraani]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Paradise is not attained through outward deeds alone, rather it is attained through sincerity and intention. [Hasan al Basri]

Guidance of the Day:
You must love and hate for the sake of God, for this is one of the firmest handholds of faith. When you love the servant who is obedient to God because of his obedience, and hate the one who is disobedient to God because of his disobedience, and not for any other reason, then you are the one who truly loves and hates for the sake of God. If you find in yourself no love for the people of goodness, because of their goodness, and no loathing for the people of evil, because of their evil, then know that your faith is weak.

Keep the company of the best people and avoid that of the worst; sit with the virtuous and avoid the unjust. Know that associating with people of goodness and keeping their company implant the love of goodness in the heart and help to practice it, while associating with the people of evil and keeping their company implant the love of evil in the heart and the love of practicing it. The one who associates closely with a particular group of people, inevitably ends up loving them, whether they are good or evil, and a man is with those he loves both in this world and in the hereafter. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Death has ten thousand several doors for men to take their exits. Unique circumstances of death will be granted to someone with a unique personality.
