Ayahs of the Day:
They wish to extinguish the light of God with their words, but God insists on fulfilling the divine light, even if scoffers are averse. God is the one who sent the messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, to distinguish it over all religion, even if polytheists object. (9: 32,33]

Hadith of the Day:
A believer is his brother's mirror. A believer is a brother to a believer, for he looks after his affairs and protects him from behind. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Three things are extremely difficult: being generous when one is poor, being truthful when one is fearful, and being pious when one is alone. [Bishr Hafi]

Guidance of the Day:
When there's a crisis and there's no time to think--only to react--we automatically turn toward one another in the kindest way and hang on to one another for support. That's the way it can be in solid relationships with your spouse, your children, your relatives, and your coworkers. Strong bonds are not necessarily forged out of earth-shattering events like job loss, irreconcilable conflict, or horrid disaster. Trust doesn't require gut-wrenching conversations that plumb the depths of our souls. Rather, good relationships usually develop slowly over time, growing out of the thousands of mundane interactions we share each day.

But when a crisis comes, all that thoughtfulness pays off richly. If you make a habit of turning toward one another's bids for connection, you'll have better access to the healing power of humor, affection, and compassion during times of conflict or catastrophe. By practicing the kind of mindful listening that allows you to understand each other's experiences, you become more sensitive to each other's needs. [The Relationship Cure]

Food for Thought:
Happiness walks on busy feet. Good ideas need landing gears as well as wings. Whoever's aspiration is high, his rank rises.
