Ayahs of the Day:
And, "Set your face to religion devoutly; and do not be an idolater, And do not pray to anything but God, anything that neither helps nor hurt you; for if you do so you will be a wrongdoer." [10: 105,106]

Hadith of the Day:
Charity appeases the Lord's anger and averts an evil death. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The total and lasting mistake is to have free time and not betake yourself to Him or for the obstacles to be few and not journey to Him. [Ibn Ataillah]

Guidance of the Day:
Refining character traits is one of the most central concerns of the righteous. They are distinguished from others by their good character, and through it they were known. Whoever reflects on the Quran and Sunna will know that good character is as central to religion as a foundation is to a building.

Improving character traits is not possible except through spiritual struggle at the hands of a perfected spiritual guide who has struggled with his own self, opposed his caprice, left lowly character traits, and adorned himself with praiseworthy ones. Whoever thinks they can achieve this by mere knowledge and the study of books has erred and gone far astray. Just as (outward) knowledge is only acquired through study with scholars, good character is acquired by struggling to attain it at the hands of the knowers of Allah. [Sunni Path]

Food for Thought:

Strange thing how trouble acts different on folks, it's like hot weather---sours milk but sweetens apples.
