Ayah of the Day:
Equal is the one of you who conceals his speech to the one who speaks openly; as is the one who tries to hide himself by night to the one who goes about freely by day. [13: 10]

Hadith of the Day:
The best of you are those who, when seen, remind people of Allah. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Wealth and poverty are Divine gifts. Wealth is corrupted by forgetfulness, poverty by greed. [al Qushayri]

Guidance of the Day:
Humility is a key to all other virtues. One who is humble may have all other virtues, whereas one who lacks humility usually is deprived of other virtues as well. After his fault, Prophet Adam, upon him be peace, nevertheless recovered, through humility, all of his former connections to the world beyond. By contrast, Satan, undergoing the same test as Adam, became the irrecoverable victim of his self-conceit and haughtiness.

Humble people attain high (spiritual) ranks in the institutions of spiritual training. They benefit fully from a good education, whether religious or scientific, and prove useful to their communities. Those whose vainglory and pride do not allow them to benefit from the discipline of these institutions, or to be taught by others, have lost their way.

Since grandeur and pride are among the exclusive attributes of the Divine Being, those who act arrogantly and transgress the limits of modesty are seized and punished by Him. Those who know their true station and remain suitably humble and modest are honored with His Presence. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:

No one gives their opinion with more zeal than an ignorant person. The person who knows it all, has a lot to learn.
