Ayahs of the Day:
God knows what every female bears; and when the wombs are premature and when they are overdue. And God has every thing on a determined measure. Knower of the invisible and the evident, God is the Greatest, the Exalted. [13: 8,9]

Hadith of the Day:
No one who carries tales about others will go to Paradise. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
One who knows that his speech is part of his action will speak little except of that which concerns him. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
Humility makes people pleased with God's judgments, and steadfast in the face of reproofs and insults from others. Those who know their place and do not put on airs have truly secured and defended themselves against other people's contempt.

Humility is a sign of virtue and maturity, while haughtiness and self-conceit indicate an imperfect, lowly spirit. The most perfect human beings are those who are at ease and intimate in the company of others. By contrast, those who are too proud to join in with others and form warm friendships with them are the most imperfect human beings and only earn notoriety.

Those who do not seek or claim great prestige in their community sooner or later attain high ranks and are honored. Those who have a superiority complex are repudiated by their community and eventually become strangers in it. Humility is a sign of one's having become truly human. One sign of humility is that one does not change after obtaining high status or wealth, learning or fame, or whatever is publicly esteemed. If any of these circumstances causes a person to alter his or her ideas, attitudes, and behavior, he or she cannot be regarded as having attained true humanity or true humility. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Du'a of the Week:
Allahumma anta Rabbi, La ilaha illa anta, alayka tawakkaltu, wa anta Rabbul-arshil- Azim. (O Allah You are my Lord, there is no God but You, upon You do I rely, and You are the Lord of the Throne, the Formidable).

Food for Thought:

God comforts us, not to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters. Happiness increases the more you spread it around.
