Ayah of the Day:
And do not let their speech grieve you; for all power belongs to God, who is all-hearing and all-knowing. [10: 65]

Hadith of the Day:
Allah said: "Every action of the son of Adam is for him except fasting, for that is solely for Me. I give the reward for it. [Fiqh us Sunnah]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Sacrifice your ego; nothing more. [abu Sa'id]

Guidance of the Day:
Imam al Ghazali has said that the greatest proof of human deficiency is the fact that when a person does something, shortly thereafter he realizes he could have done better. The scholars say the use of time, especially the night. Reserve a portion of it to read the Quran and stand in prayer. This is, ofcourse, in addition to the Tarawih Prayers. The night vigil (Qiyam), even if short, is packed with goodness.

Also perform the Midmorning Prayer (Duha), which is performed after the full rising of the sun and before the sun reaches it zenith. One may pray two, four, six, or eight ra'kas. This is a Prayer that the Prophet (may blessings and peace be upon him) did regularly. If one establishes these additional acts of worship during Ramadan, they may be carried over throughout the year, spreading the benefit of Ramadan through the other months. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:

A wise person has an open mind and a closed mouth; the safest way to disagree is quietly.
