Ayah of the Day:
For in the alteration of night and day, and what God has created in the heavens and the earth are signs for conscientious people. [10: 6]

Hadith of the Day:
Someone who sets forth in search of knowledge is busy in the cause of God until he returns from his quest. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
O Son of Adam! You are but a bundle of days, as each day passes away a portion of you vanishes away! [Hasan al Basri]

Guidance of the Day:
You should have a wird of reflection in every twenty-four hours, for which you should set aside one or more hours. The best time for reflection is the one which contains the fewest occupations and worries, and the most potential for the heart to be present, such as the depths of the night

Know that the state of one's religious and worldly affairs depends upon the soundness of one's reflection. Anyone who has a share of it has an abundant of everything good. It has been said, "An hour's reflection is better than a year worship." Ali (ibn Abi Talib), may God honor his face, has said, "There is no worship like reflection." And it has been said, "Reflection is the lamp of the heart; if it departs, the heart will have no light.

The ways of reflection are many. One, which is the most noble of them, is to reflect on the wonders of God's dazzling creation, the inward and outward sign of His Ability, and the signs He has scattered abroad in the realm of the earth and the heavens. This kind of reflection increases your knowledge of the Essence, Attributes and Names of God. He has encouraged by saying, "Say: Look at what is in the heavens and the earth! You yourself are one of the wondrous creatures He has made, and you should therefore reflect on yourself, for He has said, In the earth are signs for those who have certainty, and in yourselves; can you not see? [Key to the GARDEN]

Du'a of the Week:
Allahumma qanni'ni bima razaqtani wa baarikli fihi (O Allah! Make me content with what You provided me with, and bless me in it).

Food for Thought:

Sometimes struggles are exactly what we need in our lives. If God allowed us to go through our lives without any obstacles, it would cripple us. We would not be as strong as what we could have been.
