Ayahs of the Day:
As for those who are conscientious, when an impulse from Satan strikes them, they are mindful, and so they see. But their brothers cause them to increase in error, and unceasingly at that. [7: 201, 202]

Hadith of the Day:
Do not associate anything with Allah, even if you are tortured with cuts and burns. Do not intentionally miss a prayer, for those who intentionally miss prayer will be on their own. Never drink wine, for it is the key to all evil. Obey your parents. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Glad tidings to the one who leaves the dunya before it leaves him, prepares for his grave before he enters it, and pleases his Lord before he meets Him. [Yahya ibn Muadh]

Guidance of the Day:
Sincere renunciation has many marks. Among these is that one does not rejoice for what one has nor mourn for what one has not, and that the pursuit and enjoyment of the world do not distract one from that which is better for one in the sight of his Lord.

Remove the love of dinars and dirhams from your heart until they become as pebbles and sand in your eyes. Remove the wish to be thought highly of from your heart until you are indifferent to people's praise and condemnation, and to whether they are attracted or repulsed by you. For the love of prominence is more harmful than that of money, and both indicate desire for the world. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Wind, wealth and time are ever changing, so value them. Beware of bad company, a bad friend is as unreliable as a snake. He who guides you to Allah has truly counseled you.
