Ayah of the Day:
Say, "O people! If you are in doubt about my way, I do not worship the things that you worship instead of God. Rather, I worship God, the One Who will take your souls. and I have been ordered to be of the believers. [10: 104]

Hadith of the Day:
Have mercy upon the earthly creatures that the One Who is in the Heavens have mercy on you. [Abu Daud]

Wise Quote of the Day:
True repentance entails constant regret of your sins. Without remorse, good deeds, be they abounding, could be eclipsed by pride that follows piety. Remorse for a sin is superior to good works. Never forget your transgressions to save yourself from conceit. [Al Hujwiri]

Guidance of the Day:
Measures recommended to deal with anger:

Remember the clemency, forbearance, and easy going nature of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) with others, and did not get angry unless the anger was for the sake of Allah. The examples of this from his life are numerable. The scholars say that every Muslim should strive to read about the life and example of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) daily.

Beware of the harms of anger, which include falling into that which Allah deems impermissible of words or actions, and acting in a way unbefitting of a believer. Would we act like this if we were aware that Allah sees all our actions? Would we act like this in the presence of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace). Remember that anger is generally animalistic. Beware that one resembles animals, more than noble humans, when in a state of anger. [Sunni Path]

Food for Thought:

There is no personal charm so great as the charm of a cheerful temperament. It would be a great world if we were always as pleasant as we sometimes are.
