Ayahs of the Day:
The only believers are those whose hearts tremble when God is mentioned, and who are increased in faith when the signs of God are recited to them, and who trust in their Lord; those who pray regularly, and give of what We have provided them. They are the ones who are truly believers; there are ranks in the presence of their Lord for them, and forgiveness, and a generous provision. [8: 2, 3, 4]

Hadith of the Day:
After his death, the rank of the deceased will be elevated and he will say, 'O Lord, how did this happen?' He will be told, your offspring sought forgiveness for you'. Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Guard your secrets even if you feel safe with someone because the one you divulge your secret to is not a safer place than your own heart from where it emanated. [Ahmad al Zarruq]

Guidance of the Day:
The one whose reliance is sincere has three marks. The first is that he neither has hopes in nor fears other than God. The sign of this is that he upholds the truth in the presence of those in whose regard people usually have hope or fear, such as princes and rulers.

The second is that worrying about his sustenance never enters his heart, because of his confidence in God's guarantee, so that his heart is as tranquil when in need as when his need has been fulfilled, or even more.

The third is that his heart does not become disturbed in fearful situations, knowing that that which missed him could never have struck him, and that which has struck him could never have missed him. God is our sufficiency and He is the best of Patrons (3:173). [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
He who plans his program for tomorrow takes confusion out of his day. In matters of style, swim with current, in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
