Ayahs of the Day:
We gave Moses a scripture, but differences arose in regard to it; and had it not been for a word gone forth from your Lord before, the matter would have been settled among them. Now they are sure in disquieting doubt about it. Your Lord will requite them all fully; for God is indeed acquainted with what it is they do. [11: 110,111]

Hadith of the Day:
Allah has never sent a prophet or a caliph except that He sent an entourage with him. One entourage would enjoin him to do good and shun evil, and another entourage would spare no effort to corrupt him. Those who resist the temptings of the evil entourage will be protected. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not strut proudly on account of your good deeds. Do not let pride waylay you. When you deem yourself holier than others, know that you have fallen into grave error. [Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani]

Guidance of the Day:
Those who criticize the Quran as if it were their profession generally have only a vague and superficial knowledge of its contents. It is ironic that such people feel free to vent their opinions without researching the Quran or even reading it. It seems that we must continue to wait for people to awaken to truth.

In the near future, and under humanity's gazes of commendation and amazement, the streams of knowledge, technique, and art flowing toward the Quranic ocean will fall into their essential source and unite with it. At that time, scholars, researchers, and artists will find themselves in that same ocean.

Those who have prevented Muslims from understanding the Quran and perceiving it in depth have thus removed them from the essence and spirit of Islam. It should not be too hard to see the future as the Age of the Quran, for it is the word of One Who sees the past, present, and future at the same moment. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
Think of your own faults the first part of the night when you are awake, and the faults of others the latter part of the night when you are asleep.
