Ayah of the Day:
They even say God has a son. Glory to God! God is the self-sufficient, to whom belongs what is in the skies and what is on the earth. You have no authority for this! Do you say of God what you do not know? [10: 68]

Hadith of the Day:

If the person who is treated unjustly bears injustice for the sake of God and declines to retaliate, then God honors him by way of recompense in this and the life to come. [Ahmad]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Without a steady dose of knowledge, wisdom, and the advice from the scholars, our hearts will wither away and die. [Shaykh Fatah Musli]

Guidance of the Day:
It is not arrogance that one recognize a blessing given him. Arrogance is when a person feels that he or she deserved this blessing. Know that God can take a blessing away and elevate others in rank and honor--even those toward whom people aim their condescension.

As mentioned previously, recitation of the Quran during Ramadan is especially effective in reviving one's relationship with the Book of God. Imam Abu Hanifa said that reading the Quran atleast twice a year ensures that one is not estranged from the Quran or withdrawn from it. On the Day of Resurrection the Quran will bear witness against those who neglect it, even those who have learned it but who stopped giving it proper attention. If one is unable to recite, then one should listen to the recording of the Quran.

Throughout the centuries, scholars have written much about Ramadan. It truly is an exceptional opportunity to cleanse our hearts of the diseases. Ofcourse, the remedies can be applied any time. But during the month of miracles--when the Quran itself was revealed--small good deeds are magnified and large deeds multiplied over and over again. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
Everything requires effort, the only thing which can be achieved without it is failure. The trouble with laziness is that laziness is seldom curable and never fatal.
