Ayahs of the Day:
Do they feel sure that a calamity from the punishment of God will not come upon them, or the end of time will not come upon them suddenly, while they are unawares? Say,"This is my way; I invite to God, based on evidence; I and whoever follows me. And, glory be to God, I am not a polytheist. [12: 107, 108]

Hadith of the Day:
There is nothing wrong with wealth for those who are purified. But good health for those who are conscious of Allah is even better. And, being good-natured is a gift. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Knowledge is the spirit that saves the heart from the death of ignorance; it is the light that saves it from the darkness of iniquity. The hearts of iniquitous are dead because they are oblivious to God, and the hearts of heedless are sick because they ignore His commandments. [Abu Ali Thaqafi]

Guidance of the Day:
Establishing a sound relationship with a long, great past and a long, better future depends on your having a proper understanding of your heart's and soul's vitality. The fortunate ones live at this level and fully understand this life. They see the past as our ancestors' great tents and thrones, the future as roads leading toward the gardens of Paradise, and, while sipping inspiration from their inner conscience as if from the fountain of Kawthar (one of the rivers in Paradise), they pass on from the guesthouse of this world.

But the unfortunate ones, those who cannot reach such level of understanding and endeavor, lead lives that are worse than deaths, and their deaths are a hell of darkness upon darkness. There is a mutually supportive and perfective relation between one's actions and inner life. We may call this relation a virtuous circle." Attitudes like determination, perseverance, and resolve illuminate one's inner conscience, and the brightness of this inner conscience strengthens one's will power and resolve, stimulating him or her to ever-higher-horizons. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:

Form good habits, they are just as hard to break as bad ones. Live your life so that there will be those that will thank God that you lived.
