Ayahs of the Day:
For We had certainly sent unto them a Book, based on knowledge, which We explained in detail--a guide and a mercy to all who believe. Do they just wait for the final fulfillment of the event? On the day the event is finally fulfilled, those who disregarded it before will say: "The Messengers of our Lord did indeed bring true (tidings). Have we no intercessors now to intercede on our behalf? Or could we be sent back? Then should we behave differently from our behavior in the past." In fact they will have lost their souls, and the things they invented will leave them in the lurch. [7: 52,53]

Hadith of the Day:
There is no people among which evil is committed and they have the ability to change that but they do not change it except that Allah will soon afflict them with a punishment that will affect all of them. [Abu Dawood & Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The tongue is a wild beast; when it is let loose, it wounds. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
Comfort the brokenhearted, be gentle to the weak and the needy, console the poor, be lenient with the insolvent, and lend to those who ask you. 'The reward for a loan exceeds that for charity eight times.' (Hadith). This is because a loan is only taken by one who is in need of it. Console those who are stricken by adversity, for the prophet has said, (may blessings and peace be upon him): 'The one who consoles a man stricken by adversity, that is, helps him endure patiently, has a reward similar to his.'

Beware of gloating, which is to rejoice at another Muslim's misfortune, for the Prophet has said, (may blessings and peace be upon him): 'Do not show any gloating in regard to your brother, lest God release him and afflict you,'

Beware of openly reviling a Muslim for a sin he has fallen into, for the one who does so will be afflicted likewise before he dies. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Nothing is more beneficial that you benefit from yourself, than doing what is befitting for the time.
