Ayah of the Day:
Then God covered you with sleepiness as security from the divine, and caused water to shower on you from the sky, and to purify you with it and drive the taint of Satan from you, and to strengthen your hearts, and make your feet steady thereby. [8: 11]

Hadith of the Day:
The Prophet, may blessings and peace be upon him was asked, with whom one should maintain good relations. (The Prophet replied) 'Your mother and father, your sister and brother, and then your next of kin. (This is) an essential responsibility and a relationship that must be maintained.' [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Be vigilant about your resolve in all of your affairs to your utmost. Should you resolve to do something then do it immediately before the resolve wanes. [Ahmah al Zarruq]

Guidance of the Day:
You must be content with God's decrees, for this contentment is among the most noble consequences of His love. It is the attribute of the lover to be pleased with the acts of His beloved, whether they be sweet or bitter. Contentment is to be content inwardly with God's acts, and outwardly to do what pleases Him.

Should one wish to know how much contentment he has, then let him search for it when hardships arrive, afflictions descend, and sickness become severe, for in these circumstances he will either find it or not.

Know that supplication even with insistence does not compromise contentment; on the contrary, it is part of it. How can it not be so when prayer expresses true faith in God's unity, in the language of servitude. and the hall mark of realization of helplessness, neediness, humility, and poverty? Anyone who has realized these attributes has attained to knowledge and arrival, and to the utmost nearness to God. [The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Speech is a necessary evil, but silence is salvation. So when you do have to talk, do not be prolific. You will never once repent of your silence, but often times you will repent of your speech. When a person's intelligence is complete, his speech becomes rare.
