Ayahs of the Day:
How many signs in the heavens and the earth do they pass by, turning away from them! For most of them do not believe in God, except as polytheists. [12: 105,106]

Hadith of the Day:
The prophet of Allah (peace and blessings upon him) used to prohibit idle speculation, the wasting of resources, unnecessary questioning, avarice, disobedience to parents, and the burying of baby girls. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
One who remembers death a lot will be easily contented with the simple things in life. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
The really long lived are not those who live long but those who can make their lives as fruitful as possible. In view of this standard, as there may be those who, though a hundred years old, are truly short lived, it is also possible that there are those who, though only fifteen years old, have been able to attain to the highest degrees by dedicating their lives to giving as many fruits as possible.

The true life is the one lived at the spiritual level. Those whose hearts are alive, conquering the past and the future, cannot be contained by time. Such people are never excessively distressed by sorrows of the past or anxieties of the future. Those who cannot experience full existence in their hearts, and thus lead banal, shallow lives, are always gloomy and inclined to hopelessness. They consider the past as a horrifying grave, and the future an endless well. It is torment if they die, and it is torment if they survive. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:

If anyone speaks badly of you, live so that no one will believe it. Some people make the world more special just by being in it.
