Ayahs of the Day:
And do not be like those who have left their homes vainly, to be seen by the people, while blocking the way of God. For God encompasses what they do. When Satan made their acts seem good to them, he said, "No one can defeat you while I am near you." But when the two armies saw each other, he retreated and said, "I have nothing to do with you! For I see what you do not see; as for me, I fear God, for God is severe in punishment." [8: 47, 48]

Hadith of the Day:
The seeking knowledge (in the company of others) for an hour in the night is better than spending the whole night in prayer. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Accept the truth from whoever says it whether they are young or old and beware of being given to refusal and arrogance. [Shaykh Bayanuni]

Guidance of the Day:
When you understand your own enduring vulnerabilities and are willing to talk about them with people you trust, you are in a good spot to form deep and solid relationships. Another essential element is your willingness to listen openly when a friend or loved one tells you stories of the hard times they have endured, the events that are the most unforgettable parts of their emotional heritage. Honored respectfully, such conversations are the foundations of profound and emotional connection.

It takes a brave heart to look back thoughtfully at past injuries, your family's emotional philosophy, and your emotional history. But doing so with a clear intention of improving your current and future relationships is well worth the effort. Getting clear about the past allows you to separate yesterday's issues from today's reality. It allows you to be more present in your current relationships. Being fully present and aware is vital to improving your bidding process. [The Relationship Cure]

Food for Thought:
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear,
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.
