Ayahs of the Day:
As for those who desire the life of this world and its pomp, We will pay them for their works in it; and nothing will be withheld of what is due to them. They are the ones for whom there is nothing in the hereafter but the fire; and what they have done here is futile, and their works are in vain. [11: 15,16].

Hadith of the Day:
It is not permissible to sell an article without making it clear, nor is it is permissible for anyone who knows its defects to refrain from mentioning it. [Bayhaqi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Quran is above-all a Book of Guidance. There can be little blessing for those who have insufficient respect and veneration for the Quran to follow its guidance and command. [Shaykh Faraz Rabbani]

Guidance of the Day:
Good character traits may be present in some cases by natural disposition and nature. More commonly, however, they need to be acquired by making oneself used to performing good works, by observing those of good works and keeping their company. These are the worthy associates and brethren in godliness, for natures acquire both good and bad from the company one keeps.

The one for whom all three means are present are in a highly noble state, while the one with a lowly disposition who has bad companions whom he learns from, until the means to bad deeds become easy for him, is extremely far from Allah. Between these two stations are those with varying acquisition of these means, each with a station of closeness or distance depending on their state and situation. "And whoso does ill an atom's weight will see it then." (99: 7,8) [Sunni Path]

Food for Thought:
Any person worth their salt will stick up for what they believe in, but it takes a slightly bigger person to acknowledge instantly and without reservation that they are in error.
