Ayah of the Day:
And it is God who created the heavens and the earth in six days while God's throne was upon the water, to test which of you is best in conduct. But if you were to say, "You will be resurrected after death," those who scoffed would say, "This is but obvious witchcraft" [11: 7]

Hadith of the Day:
Whoever Allah wishes well for, He gives deep understanding of religion (fiqh). [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
There is no rest for the envier; there is no moral integrity for the liar; there is no well-being for the miser; there is no nobility for the ill-mannered; there is no abrogation for Allah's decree. [Ahnaf ibn Qays]

Guidance of the Day:
If the self finds pleasure from the habit and its habitual company in the worthless and inclines to them, then how can it not find pleasure in the worthwhile if it is returned to it for a period and made to return attached to it while mixing with the righteous and keeping their company?

In reality, the self's inclination towards despicable things is contrary to its natural disposition and a kin to an inclination to eat mud. As for it inclining to wisdom, the love and knowledge of Allah and His worship, it is like its inclination to food and drink. It is a result of the natural disposition of the heart, for the heart is a lordly matter. Thus, the self's inclining to its passions is alien to it, and foreign to its disposition. [Sunni Path]

Food for Thought:

It is better, beyond compare, to seek out the company of those who help one achieve contentment with God. When one is content, little will suffice. But without contentment, nothing will suffice.
