Ayah of the Day:
And on earth are neighboring sections, and vineyards of grapes and fields of grain, and date palms, from the same root and otherwise: they are watered by the same water, but We have favored some over others as foods. Truly in that is a sign for people who understand. [13: 4]

Hadith of the Day:
The most blame worthy trait is obscenity. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Modesty, which is praise worthy, is a character trait that leads one to avoid that which is religiously or socially reprehensible. [Barkawi]

Guidance of the Day:
Love means the heart's attachment and the willpower's inclination toward the beloved. It also means the feelings being purified of anything or anyone else other than the beloved and all the senses and faculties of the lover being turned to and set on the beloved only. Every act of the lover reflects the beloved; his or her heart always beats with yearning for the beloved; his or her tongue always murmurs the beloved's name, and his or her eyes open and close with the beloved's image.

One should not confuse true love (for the Divine) with the feeling felt for members of opposite sex. Such love, although sometimes transformed into true love, is deficient, temporary, and has no inherent value. It is impossible to express love with words, for love is an emotional state that can be understood only by the lover.

If we do not plant the seeds of love (for the Divine) in the hearts of young people, whom we try to revive through science, knowledge, and modern culture, they will never attain perfection and free themselves completely from their carnal desires. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:

In an argument the best weapon to hold is your tongue. Anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind.
