Ayahs of the Day:
If We let man taste mercy from Us, and then withdraw it from him, he despairs and is ungrateful. And if We let him taste favor after affliction has touched him, he will say, "The ills have gone from me!" Indeed he exults and is boastful. The exceptions are those who are patient and do good works; for them there is forgiveness, and a great reward. [11: 9,10,11]

Hadith of the Day:
He who cheats is not from us. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The most serious misdeed is that which the perpetrator thinks insignificant. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
The one who wants to become a legal scholar of deep understanding needs to undertake the works of such scholars, namely repeated study of legal texts and keeping the company of jurists, until he is characterized by legal understanding, and thus becomes such a jurist.

Likewise, the one who seeks to purify his self, perfect it and adorn it with noble traits and good works has no way to achieve this except in the same manner. Just as the student of law cannot become a jurist by a night's study or reading, the one seeking to purify his self cannot achieve it by a night's worship or be debarred from it by a day's disobedience. However, a day's remissness could lead to another until, little by little, the self becomes accustomed to remissness and leaves its striving. [Sunni Path]

Food for Thought:
Troubles are usually the brooms and shovels that smooth the road to a good person's fortune.
