Ayahs of the Day:
Oh, yes! For the friends of God there is no fear, and they will not sorrow; those who believe and are conscientious; for them there are good tidings in the life of the world and the hereafter too. There is no changing the words of God; that is the supreme salvation. [10: 62,63,64]

Hadith of the Day:

Whoever does not give up telling lies, (committing) evil deeds and speaking harshly to others God is not in need of his fasting. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Keeping the company of those who are intimate with the Divine is the best of affairs. [Sahl bin Abdullah]

Guidance of the Day:
Scholars throughout the ages recommended that in order to get the most from Ramadan one should not engage in excessive speech. This is an Islamic ethic that should be practiced in general. but in Ramadan, it is especially advised to be vigilant about what we say, since higher Fasting involves guarding the tongue. Also, it is important to utilize our time well.

This is a month that our righteous forbears would beg God to let them witness the month six months before it came. And for six months after, they would beseech God to accept the worship they performed during Ramadan. This is how they viewed this great month. They wept when it passed, which is hardly the popular reaction of our current day. Ramadan is a merciful portal of time that opens and then closes. And none of us knows whether or not we will see another Ramadan. So seize the moment to gain God's mercy, forgiveness, and salvation. There is no capital more worthy of our concern and effort than this. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:

Time is the life of a Muslim. Reflection is the mirror of a believer in which he sees his works, evil and good.
