Ayahs of the Day:
God is the one who shows you lightning, representing fear and hope, and raises the heavy clouds. And thunder celebrates the praise of God, as do the angels from awe thereof. And God sends the thunderbolts, striking with them anyone at will, while they argue about God, Who is Mighty Powerful. [13: 12,13]

Hadith of the Day:
Do not be quick to judge, do not gossip, and do not be one of those who cannot be trusted to keep a secret, for beyond you (in the next world) there will be Hell to pay and (in this world) terrible trials. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
If you wish to mention the faults of your friends, mention your own faults first. [Ibn Abbas]

Guidance of the Day:
It is natural that one speaks only when necessary, and keeps silent when words are out of place. However, it is always better that those words which are of great benefit to others should take precedence. Nevertheless, this depends upon acquiring good manners and perceiving the virtue of keeping silent. Such wisdom is reflected in a beautiful proverb: "Those who speak a lot make many mistakes."

Any words spoken should be directed toward solving a problem or answering a question. In either case, the one who asks the question and the one who listens to the answer should not become bored.

People reveal themselves through their words, and manifest their spiritual rank through their manners. Those who act as though they are the only ones with the authority to speak inevitably become disliked and are condemned by their friends. As a result, any valuable words they might express are rejected out of hand. As a corollary, these truths are not accorded the respect they deserve. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
If you heed Satan and your soul, you will fall to the lowest of the low. But if you heed Truth and the Quran, you will rise to the highest of the high and become the most excellent pattern of the universe.
