Ayahs of the Day:
Believers, if you are conscious of God, God will provide you a criterion, and pardon your evils, and forgive you. And God has the greatest grace. And when the atheists have plotted against you, to keep you under arrest, or kill you, or expel you, as they plot, God plans too; and God is the best of planners. [8: 29, 30]

Hadith of the Day:
No sin is more deserving of immediate retribution in this world, regardless of whatever deeds may have been stored for the next world, than the severing of family ties and sedition. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
One who is headstrong and opinionated perishes, while one who seeks the advice of others becomes a partner in their understanding. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
The key to connect is to look for and celebrate those moments in which you connect with another person on a feeling level. Such moments usually begin by noticing an emotional expression as a bid for connection. You hear something a person says, or you see a facial expression or a gesture, that reveals their happiness, sadness, anger, fear, contempt, or disgust.

Once you notice it, you let this person know with your words expressions, or gestures that you understand how they are feeling. Your demonstration of understanding provides a bridge for emotional connection and paves the way to a deeper, more meaningful relationship. It's that simple. Emotional moments can be shared with your spouse, family members, friends, coworkers--even the checker at the hardware store.

You can become a collector of emotional moments by consciously looking for opportunities to connect with others. Doing so allows you to take a positive role in the development of a stable, meaningful relationships. [The Relationship Cure]

Food for Thought:
Things necessary for spiritual progress are: Qur'an, Sunnah, halal income, no harm done to others, repentance, avoiding disobedience, and fulfilling the rights of others.
