Ayah of the Day:
And who is more wrong than one who invents a lie against God? They will be set before their Lord and the witnesses will say, "These are the ones who lied against their Lord. Behold--the curse of God is on the unjust. [11: 18]

Hadith of the Day:
He who buys stolen property with the knowledge that it is stolen, shares in the sin and shame of stealing. [Bayhaqi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The one who holds on to Allah's door finds all other doors opened up in front of him. [Abu Hafs Haddad]

Guidance of the Day:
Anger is something both the Shariah and the sound intellect regard as generally blameworthy. This is why the Beloved of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) told the one who sought his counsel, "Don't get angry," repeatedly.

Khattabi said, 'The meaning of 'Do not get angry' is: don't fall into those matters that cause anger and those matters that stir one's anger--because anger itself is an intrinsic human trait and one can't get rid of it.

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "Forbearance (hilm) is the best of traits." Forbearance is for one not to be moved by one's anger and emotions; rather, one acts in accordance with the dictates of Revelation and reason. [Sunni Path]

Du'a of the Week:
A'udhu bi kalimaati'Llaahi't-taammaati min sharri ma khalaq. (I seek refuge in the complete words of Allah from the evil of what He has created).

Food for Thought:
If you use the Quran as your guide, you will never lose your sense of direction. There is only one real way to attain success and that is to be in the will of God.
