Ayahs of the Day:
(Allah) said: "O Moses! I have chosen you above other men, by the mission I (have given you) and the words I (have spoken to you): take then the (revelation) which I give you, and be of those who give thanks." And We ordained laws for him in the Tablets in all matters, both commanding and explaining all things, (and said): "Take and hold these with firmness, and enjoin your people to hold fast by the best in the precepts: soon shall I show you the homes of the wicked. [7: 144, 145]

Hadith of the Day:
Whoever follows a path in order to seek knowledge thereby, Allah will make easy for him, due to it, a path to Paradise. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Do good for the remainder of your life and you will be forgiven for what you did in the past. However, if you do evil in what remains of your life, you will be held responsible for what you did in the past and in the future. [Fudhail ibn al Iyaadh]

Guidance of the Day:
Make frequent supplications, and ask for forgiveness for yourself, your parents, relatives, friends, and all other Muslims, for the prayer of a Muslim for his brother in his absence is answered. The Prophet, may blessings and peace be upon him, has said: 'Some prayers have no veils between them and God: the prayer of the wronged, and that of a Muslim for his brother in his absence.'

Know that Muslims have many mutual obligations. If you want to fulfill these properly then behave towards Muslims, whether they be present or absent, as you would like them to behave towards you. Oppose your own soul, and accustom your heart to wish for Muslims every good that you wish for yourself. The Prophet, may blessings and peace be upon him, has said: 'None of you has believed until he loves for his brother that which he loves for himself.' People are either afflicted or free (of affliction) so be compassionate to the afflicted and thank God for freedom (from affliction). [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
The ripest peach is highest on the tree. Its not the outlook but the uplook that counts. The only place SUCCESS comes before WORK is in the dictionary. The secret of happy living is not to do what you like, but to like what you do.
