Ayah of the Day:
Those who behave arrogantly on the earth in defiance of right--I will turn them away from My Signs: Even if they see all the Signs, they will not believe in them; and if they see the way of right conduct, they will not adopt it as the way; but if they see the way of error, that is the way they will adopt, for they have rejected Our Signs, and failed to take warning from them. [7: 146]

Hadith of the Day:
Whoever is slowed by his deeds will not be hastened forward by his lineage. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
This worldly life is a deceiving form of enjoyment if it diverts the person from seeking the Hereafter, if it calls a person to seeking Allah's pleasure and seeking the Hereafter, then it is an excellent means. [Saeed ibn Jubair]

Guidance of the Day:
You must repent from every single sin, small or great, outward or inward. Know that repentance cannot be sound unless the sin itself is renounced, remorse is felt, and there is present a determination never to repeat it for the rest of one's life. God loves the penitent. The true penitent is characterized by signs, among which are softness of the heart, frequent weeping, adhering to obedience, and forsaking evil companions and places.

Beware of willful persistence, which is to sin and not repent immediately. It is a believer's duty to guard against sins, both small and great, in the way he would against come across burning fires, engulfing waters or lethal poisons. He should neither commit nor intend a sin, neither talk about it before nor delight in it after it happened. If he does fall into it he should conceal and hate it, and hasten to repent immediately. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Justice is truth in action. It is never too late to mend. One who makes a mistake and doesn't correct it is making another mistake. Hatred is a coward's revenge for being intimidated.
