Ayah of the Day:
And when trouble touches man, he cries to Us laying on his side, sitting and standing; but when we removed his trouble from him, he goes as if he never called Us for trouble that touched him. Thus do their habits seem good to the wasteful. [10: 12]

Hadith of the Day:
Whosoever relieves a believer from one of the hardships of this world, God will relieve him from one of the hardships of the Day of Rising. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The righteous deeds are performed by the righteous and the wicked. However only the truthful ones avoid the sinful deeds. [Sahl ibn Abdullah al Tustari]

Guidance of the Day:
A believer's reflection may lead him to some of the deep mysteries of Tawhid, its unseen secrets, and its hidden realities. He must reflect on how he had needed his Lord's creative ability to make and fashion his human form and that he must therefore need His grace and illumination to guide his essential nature.
He must not ground his faith in the conclusions of human thinking, but must rather flee from his confusion to God and His Messenger, and entreat his Lord to bestow His assistance upon him, which will do away with his need for any other until such time as he witnesses only Him.

He must say, "O Lord, I seek refuge in You, lest my faith in You and what You have revealed be the product of rationalization that is tarnished by the attributes of the ego or by a mind that is mixed with the murkiness of human fallibility. Rather let it be from Your manifest light, Your most exalted assistance, the light of Your Prophet, the Chosen One, and his blessings."
Thus you will find peace and cool tranquility. This is the way the rightly guided man follows in his time of need, whenever his thoughts are in turmoil and conflict. [Key to the GARDEN]

Food for Thought:
He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not, is a fool -- shun him.
He who knows not, and knows that he knows not, is a child -- teach him.
He who knows, and knows not that he knows, is asleep -- wake him.
He who knows, and knows that he knows, is a wise man -- follow him.
