Ayah of the Day:
Believers, what is the matter with you that you sink to the ground when you are told to go forth in the cause of God? Do you prefer the life of the world to the hereafter? The enjoyment of the world is but little compared to the hereafter. [9: 38]

Hadith of the Day:
A believer who eats at the expense of another believer will be fed from the fires of Hell; a believer who dresses at the expense of another believer will be clothed from the Fires of Hell. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The wealthiest person is the one who has abundance of taqwa. [Dhunnoon al Misri]

Guidance of the Day:
You don't have to wait for an earthquake--or a car accident, a heart attack, or any other near disaster--to start appreciating and improving your relationships. You can begin today in the smallest of ways by extending simple, positive bids for connection and turning towards others' bids in a positive way. If you start to look around, you will begin to see new and surprising opportunities for emotional connection all around you, and your life will start to change in positive ways.

One of the best things about turning toward others' bids for connection is the way that positive responses typically lead to more bidding, more turning toward. Any small, positive effort can get the ball rolling in the right direction. This means you can start anytime, anywhere to improve your relationships and your life. It's simply a matter of becoming a "collector of emotional moments," of recognizing all the potential for connection in small, seemingly insignificant interactions--a shy smile, a weak hello, an invitation to the grocery store. [The Relationship Cure]

Food for Thought:

Knowledge calls for practice, if practice follows, knowledge increases. If practice does not follow, knowledge goes away or becomes a burden. Real knowledge must bear fruit, otherwise it is useless, harmful knowledge.
