Ayah of the Day:
Your Guardian Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days, then He established Himself on the Throne (of authority): He draws the night as a veil over the day, each seeking the other in rapid succession; He created the sun, the moon, and the stars, (all) governed by laws under His command. Is it not His to create and govern? Blessed be Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds! [7: 54]

Hadith of the Day:
By Allah in Whose hand is my soul, you must order good and forbid evil or Allah will soon send upon you a punishment from Himself and then you will supplicate to Him and He will not respond to you. [Ahmad & Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
We need to remember what our scholars say: "What stems from the heart finds its way to the heart, yet what is delivered by the tongue will not go beyond the ear."

Guidance of the Day:
Relieve those in hardship, fulfill the needs of those in need, and keep the sinner's disgrace concealed. For the Prophet (may blessings and peace be upon him), has said: 'God shall grant ease to him who eases the hardship of another, and shall conceal, in this world and the hereafter, (the sins) of him who conceals (the disgrace of) a believer; and He shall relieve from one of the hardships of the Day of Rising the one who relieves a Muslim from one of the hardships of this world; He shall fulfill the need of the man who fulfills his brother's need. He assists His servants as long as he assists his brother.'

Try to gladden the hearts of believers in every possible way, as long as these ways are not sinful. Intercede for anyone who requests it of you with those with whom you are influential, for God will ask His servant to account for his influence just as He will ask him to account for his money. If, following an act of intercession, you receive a gift for it you should refuse it, for it is a form of usury. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Don't expect to enjoy the cream of life, if you keep your milk of human kindness all bottled up. You can never speak a kind word too soon, for you never know how soon is too late.
