Ayah of the Day:
Say, "Do you see what God has sent down for you as sustenance? Yet you make some forbidden and some approved." Say, "Has God given you permission, or have you imputed something to God?" [10: 59]

Hadith of the Day:
Wherever you be and whatever your condition, do not cease to feel the presence of God in you, and do some good deed the moment you feel you have done a wrong thing, as the merit of the one will wipeout the sin of the other, and behave well with others. [Ahmad, Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The responsibility of maintaining a religious and modest society weighs on the shoulders of both Muslim men and women, so let us take this role seriously. [Shaykh Amjad Rasheed]

Guidance of the Day:
There are three types of Fasting: the general Fast, elect Fasting, and Fasting of the elect of the elect. The general Fast involves preventing the stomach and genitals from fulfillment from dawn until dusk. This is something any Muslim can do. Fasting of the elect involves protecting the eyes, ears, tongue, hands, stomach, genitals, and feet against sin, small or large.

Ibn al Qayyim said that the body of the human being is like a country, whose capital is the heart and whose frontiers are the limbs. Satan reaches the heart through one or more of these appendages. Fasting guards the boundaries and trains its sentinels so the heart has a greater chance of drawing near to God. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:

Health food enthusiasts insist that you are what you eat. It is also true that you are what you think.
