Ayahs of the Day:
So if you have been in doubt about what We revealed to you, then ask those who have already been reading scripture before you. Truth has come to you from your Lord, so do not be a doubter. And do not be of those who repudiate the signs of God, for then you will be losers. [10: 94,95]

Hadith of the Day:
Verily God is Pure and loves the pure, is Beneficent and loves the beneficent, is Generous and loves the generous. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Be so tolerant that your chest becomes wide like the ocean. Become inspired with faith and love of human beings. [Fethullah Gulen]

Guidance of the Day:
Breath is a Divine gift, and the tongue is a plane upon which the breezes of the breath flow. To speak we need a tongue, lips and breath. To remember God, we need a heart. We have been given all four and reminded by Allah in every Book of revelation that the reason we are created is to worship Him. Infact, everything in existence is initially created in a state of worship. However, because of their free will, human can forget the reason of their existence.

It is through remembrance the equilibrium is established in the soul. "Is it not by the remembrance of Allah that hearts are stilled?" the Quran metorically asks. When remembering Allah one often feels His presence. While this can be true of remembrance of anyone, the presence of Allah, as well as that of Prophets and Saints, brings a stillness of the heart without comparison. [Prophetic Invocations]

Food for Thought:
The purpose of humanity is observation and compassion. Where there is a human being there is a chance for kindness.
