Ayah of the Day:
It is He who sends the winds like heralds of glad tidings, going before His Mercy: when they have carried the heavy laden clouds, We drive them to a land that is dead, make rain to descend thereon, and produce every kind of harvest therewith: thus shall We raise up the dead; perchance you may remember. [7: 57]

Hadith of the Day:
It is enough of evil for a person to hold his brother Muslim in contempt. All of a Muslim is inviolable to another Muslim; his blood, his wealth and his honor. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The contented one is freed from dependence upon the creation. He who leaves his desires attains his freedom. [Hasan al Basri]

Guidance of the Day:
Show delight and pleasure when something good befalls the Muslims, such as the arrival of rains, lowering of prices, or victory over aggressors or disbelievers. Be sad and aggrieved when hardship befalls them such as epidemics, rising prices, and seditions. Entreat God to relieve them of such trials, yet you should accept His decree and ordinance. The Prophet (may blessings and peace be upon him) said: 'The one who is not interested in the affairs of the Muslims is not one of them.'

When a Muslim does you a favor you must accept it, and thank and reward him. If you cannot reward him or you fear to offend him, then pray for him. For the Prophet (may blessings and peace be upon him) said: 'When someone does you a favor reward him; if you are unable to then pray for him until you feel that you have rewarded him.' And: 'The one who says to someone who has done him a favor: "May God reward you with goodness!" has given him an exceedingly good prayer.' [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Man was given two ears and one tongue, so that he may listen more than he speaks. If you think of yourself, you will not speak badly about others.
