Ayah of the Day:
My Lord, You gave me some authority, and taught me some interpretation of stories. Creator of the heavens and the earth, You are my protector in the world and the hereafter; take my soul in the state of acquiescence, and unite me with the upright. [12: 101]

Hadith of the Day:
The best among you in Islam are those with the best manners, so long as they develop a sense of understanding. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Disputes that escalate to high levels can only be defused if one of the parties lays down arms and surrenders, preferring family harmony and the pleasure of God Most High over personal grudges. [Hamza Karam Ali]

Guidance of the Day:
Worship means one's sincere acknowledgment of himself or herself as a servant, and God as the sole and true Object of Worship. It consists in a servant designing his or her life in accordance with the relations between a true servant and the True Object of Worship, in the light of the fact that one is the created and the other the Creator.

Worship means one's thankfulness for the bounties with which he or she is endowed, such as life, consciousness, power of perception and faith, while negligence of the duty of worship is crude ingratitude.

Worship is a road to travel, opened by the Being Who commands us to believe, and it is a set of good manners that He ordered us to observe, so that we could finally reach Him and obtain happiness in both this life and the next. It is not possible for those who cannot find this way and acquire these manners to reach God, the Truth. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:

Take delight in the good fortune of another person. Blowing out another person's candle won't make ours any brighter.
