Ayahs of the Day:
Now if your Lord had willed, everyone on earth would have believed; are you then going to compel the people to become believers? For no soul can believe except by God's permission; and God heaps loathing on those who will not understand. [10: 99,100]

Hadith of the Day:
Two of your qualities are pleasing to God. One is your sense of self-restraint; the other is your disinclination to act hastily. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
There is no punishment greater than heedlessness or hard heartedness. [Ahmad Hawari]

Guidance of the Day:
Besides remembrance (of Allah) itself, another cause of stillness (sakina) is the actual presence of angelic beings and the absence of demonic, brought about by dhikra Llah. In our modern world we tend to shy away from mentioning unseen beings such as angels and demons, but lack of belief in something does not necessitate its nonexistence. Angels are real; they love the remembrance of Allah and will actually seek out places where He is being remembered in or to join in. Though unseen, their presence is felt by the worshipper.

The fundamental reason why remembrance of Allah effects us is simply that the entire body craves Divine remembrance more intensely than anything else. When the heart and its translator, the tongue, join in, harmony occurs. We need the prayers for our sanity and for our protection from the evils of the world. [Prophetic Invocatons]

Food for Thought:

Success is a ladder which cannot be climbed with your hands in your pockets. There is no vacations from the school of experience.
