Ayahs of the Day:
So when the Quran is recited, listen to it silently, that you may experience mercy. And remember your Lord within your soul, humbly and meekly, and without speaking loudly, in the mornings and the evenings; and don't be one of the heedless. Even those who are in the presence of your Lord are not too proud to serve God, whom they praise and to whom they bow. [7: 204, 205, 206]

Hadith of the Day:
There is no sin more likely to bring its perpetrator to a swift account, regardless of what good he/she has done, than arrogance and the severing of family relations. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
It is said that, "I Allah wants good for His servant He gives him the understanding of the din, reduces his attachment to the dunya, and grant him awareness of his faults.

Guidance of the Day:
You must rely on God, for He suffices, enriches, and concerns Himself with those who do so. And the one who relies on God, God will suffice him.

Reliance on God is one of the fruits of sincere monotheism which is well established and has prevailed in the heart. The Messenger of God, may blessings and peace be upon him, has said: 'Were you to rely on God as He rightly should be relied on, He would provide for you as He provides for the birds which go off hungry in the morning and return full in the evening.'

Know that the basis of reliance on God is the heart's knowledge that all matters are in God's Hand, whether beneficial or harmful, unpleasant or pleasant, and that were all creatures to unite to be of benefit to someone they would benefit him only in the way which God has already written for him; and that if they were to unite to harm him they would do so only in that which God has already written for him. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Eating Riba is not only the increase made by the one who takes riba, but it is also the benefit gained by the one who gives it.
