Ayah of the Day:
It is God who has made the sun shine and the moon glow, and determined lunar phases that you may know the number of the years, and the calculation. God did not create that in any way but right; God makes these signs clear to people who discern. [10: 5]

Hadith of the Day:
It is part of the soundness of a man's faith that he leaves alone that which does not concern him. {Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
What has he lost who has found You (O Allah), and what has he found who has lost You (O Allah). [Ibn AtaIllah]

Guidance of the Day:
Once it is made easy for one, reflection is one of the noblest acts of worship, for it implies the Remembrance of God and brings about an increase in attachment and love. For the heart loves only the one who it believes has greatness, and the greatness of God the Exalted is only revealed through knowledge of His Attributes, ability, and the marvels of His works. In this way, reflection leads to knowledge, which in turn leads to reverence, which leads on to love.

Imam al Ghazali (may God sanctify his secret!) has said, "A man who reflects at length in order to know God, and has had unveiled to him even the minutest of the secrets of His kingdom, will find in his heart such joy and bliss in this unveiling that he will almost fly, and he will be amazed at his own steadfastness and firmness." [Key to the GARDEN]

Food for Thought:

One of the basic ingredient of a successful marriage is mutual trust. Stable marriages are the basis to stable communities, it is the very fabric by which Muslim society is weaved, and tearing that fabric is disastrous for one's family and one's community.
