Ayahs of the Day:
As for those who repudiate Our signs, We shall bring them to destruction without them even knowing. Yet I prolong their lives; for My strategy is solid.[7: 182, 183]

Hadith of the Day:
No one has swallowed anything more excellent in the sight of Allah than the anger he restrains, seeking to please Allah Most High. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Good interaction with people is half of intelligence, good questioning is half of knowledge, and good planning is half of subsistence. [Omar radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
You must thank God for all that He has favored you with. You have no good thing, whether outward or inward, religious or worldly, but that it comes from Him. God's favors upon you are more than you can number or beware of, let alone adequately thank Him for. You should do as much as you can to thank your Lord, and confess your total incapacity to do so adequately.

Know that thankfulness leads to perpetuation of favors already received and to the obtaining of others that are desired. He is, Exalted is He, too generous to take away a favor from someone who is thanking Him. And God has exhorted His servants to render thanks to Him many times in His Book. And the Prophet, may blessings and peace be upon him, has said: 'Let each of you have an invoking tongue and a thankful heart.' And: 'Faith has two halves: one is patience and the other thankfulness.'

Know that just as you must thank God for favors which are proper for you, such as knowledge and health, you must also thank Him for favors which are general, such as the sending of Messengers, the revelation of Books, raising up the sky, and stretching out the earth. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Nothing will work unless you do. The only thing achieved without effort is failure. Doing nothing is the most tiresome job in the world, because you cant stop and rest.
