Ayahs of the Day:
Do they not see they are tested once or twice a year? Yet they do not repent, and they do not learn.Whenever a chapter is revealed, they look at each other: "Does anyone see you?" Then they go away. God has diverted their hearts, because they are people who do not understand. [9: 126,127]

Hadith of the Day:
God, in His equity and justice, has made joy and relief the consequence of contentment; and worry and sorrow the consequence of discontent. [Tirmidhi, Ibn Majah]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The worshippers of Allah do not worship in anyway better than avoiding what Allah has forbidden. [Hasan al Basri]

Guidance of the Day:
A further kind of deviation is that committed by certain recent commentators on the Quran, who have imagined themselves to be possessed of knowledge which would allow them to comment on the Quran in a novel way unknown to the commentators of old.

They gave themselves the title of "Renewers" and proceeded the prostration of the sun as its "rotation," the angels and jinn as "forces," and so forth. Their argument was that since they had not observed in the visible world the sun prostrating, the existence of angels or jinn, they are obliged to ignore the evident meaning of the words and interpret them as references to these claims that their minds could accommodate.

They are oblivious to the fact that because something is inaccessible to the senses does not mean that it does not exist. Many things in existence are invisible to the eye and can only be perceived through their effects, such as the spirits, electricity, various forms of energy, and other things which lie behind matter. These people deny the very existence of angels and jinn in the world, and this is the precursor to explicit disbelief. [Key to the GARDEN]

Food for Thought:

Money talks--it says "good bye," but it doesn't say when it's coming back. The easiest way to be poor is to pretend to be rich. Nothing sets a person back like keeping up a front.
