Ayah of the Day:
If the people of the town had but believed and feared Allah, We should indeed had opened out to them (all kinds of) blessings from heaven and earth; but they rejected (the truth), and We seized them because of what they had been acquiring. [7: 96]

Hadith of the Day:
No man helps a Muslim at a time when his honor is being belittled or his rights are violated except that Allah will help him in a place which he loves to have His help. [Ahmad & abu Dawood]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Get as close to Allah as you can. And realize that you do not get closer to Him by anything that is more beloved to Him than His Own Speech. [Khabbab ibn arat]

Guidance of the Day:
Defend the lives, honor, and wealth of Muslims as you defend your own, whether they be present or not. The one who supports a Muslim will be supported by God, and the one who deserts a Muslim will be deserted by Him.

You must be of good counsel to all Muslims. The highest point of this is that you conceal nothing from them which if made known would result in good or preserve from something evil. Support a Muslim in his absence as you would in his presence.

Do not praise anyone unless you know that your praises will incite him to more good works or unless he is a superior person whose superiority is not well known and you wish to make it so, this being on condition that you are safe from lying and he is safe from conceit. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
After all is said and done, there is more said than done. The wise speak little, but mean much. Those who seek their guidance should reflect in their words, rather than jump to hasty conclusions.
