Ayahs of the Day:
Call on your Lord in humility and in private; for Allah loves not those who trespass beyond bounds. Do not make mischief on the earth, after it has been set in order, but call on Him with fear and longing (in your hearts); for the mercy of Allah is (always) near to those who do good. [7:55, 56]

Hadith of the Day:
A Muslim is the brother of a Muslim. He does not wrong him, he does not fail him (when he needs him), he does not lie to him, and he does not show contempt for him. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
When you are greeted, return an even nicer greeting, and when you are done a service, repay it with something even more, though the blessing is with the one who acted first. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
Always smile at believers, show them an engaging friendly face, speak well to them, be gentle and 'lower your wing' to them. The Prophet has said, (may peace be upon him): 'Do not disdain any act of goodness, even should this meeting your brother with a face friendly face.' And: 'A kind word is a charity.' It has been handed down that when two Muslims meet and shake hands a hundred mercies are divided between them, ninety-nine of which are for the friendlier of the two.

Beware of breaking off relations with a Muslim for the sake of yourself. If you need to leave him for a religious reason then do not do so for more than three days, for the Prophet has said, (may blessings and peace be upon him): 'The one who deserts his brother for more than three days will be driven by God into the Fire, unless God rescues him through Him mercy.' This relates to desertion for the purpose of discipline; but if it be done because a wrong is being committed or a right neglected, then there can be no restoration until one reverts to right conduct. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
A smile is something nice to see, it does not cost a cent.
A smile is something all you own it, it never can be spent.
A smile is welcome everywhere, it does away with frowns.
A smile is good for everyone, to ease life's ups and down.
