Ayahs of the Day:
So be upright as you have been directed, you and those who turn to God with you and don't transgress. For God sees what you do. And do not incline toward those who have gone wrong, lest the fire touch you; you have no protectors other than God, and you won't be saved. [11: 112,113]

Hadith of the Day:
Every religion has an innate character. The character of Islam is modesty. [Bayhaqi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Sincerity is to make Allah one's sole aim in acts of obedience, meaning to intend by one's obedience to draw nearer to Allah Most High and nothing. [Abul Qasim Qushayri]

Guidance of the Day:
Humanity came to know true civilization by means of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him), and favored it. All efforts exhorted after him for the sake of true civilization have been no more than practicing or trying to practice the principles he brought and adjusting to new conditions.

He (peace and blessings upon him) rejected indolence and the lazy and esteemed labor as a mode of worship and applauded the hard-working. He directed his followers beyond the age in which they lived and taught them how they could be the element of balance in the world.

He (peace and blessings upon him) is unequaled in that he appeared as a sword of valor and eloquence against unbelief and savagery. He proclaimed the truth with the clearest voice and showed mankind the ways to true existence. Those who search for truth and thirst for true knowledge eventually will seek him out and embrace his path. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe. It is only the farmer who faithfully plants in the spring who reaps a harvest in the autumn.
