Ayah of the Day:
So do not be in doubt about what these people worship; they only worship as their ancestors used to worship before. And We will indeed repay them their portion without stint. [11: 109]

Hadith of the Day:
Do not laugh in excess, for excessive laughter deadens the heart. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Prayer is an instrument through which novices find their path to God. Thus ablution symbolizes repentance; the Qibla, a spiritual guide; standing in prayer becomes self-mortification; the recitation of the Quran, inner meditation; bowing the head, humility; prostration, self knowledge; profession of faith, intimacy; and salutation becomes detachment from the world and bondage of stations. [Al Hujwiri]

Guidance of the Day:
The most orderly life for the humanity is that breathed by the Quran. In fact, some of the beautiful things that are today universally commended and applauded are the exact things encouraged by the Quran centuries ago. So, whose fault is it if Muslims are in a miserable situation today?

The Quran enables people to rise to the highest level, namely the station of being addressed by God. Those who are conscious of being in this position hear their Lord speak to them through the Quran. If they take an oath that they speak with their Lord, they will not be among those who swear falsely.

Even though we are still in this world, when we enter the Quran's enlightened climate we feel that we are passing through the grave and the intermediate world, experiencing the Day of Judgment and the Siraat (bridge), shuddering at the horror of Hell, and walking on Heaven's tranquil slopes. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:

Knowledge is not acquired with laziness, it does not come to one without effort. One must seek it, and sacrifice his time and wealth in order to attain knowledge.
