Ayah of the Day:
God sends down water from the sky, and valleys flow according to their measure, with the current carrying swelling froth. And from what they heat in fire for ornaments or utensils comes a similar froth. In this way God exemplifies truth and falsehood. As for the froth, it goes away like foam. And as for what benefits people, it remains on earth. In this way God presents analogies. [13: 17]

Hadith of the Day:
Allah does not love obscenity or those who are obscene. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Anyone who wishes to keep his dignity should give up disputation. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
Criticizing and objecting to everything means an attempt to destruction. Give value to every word in a meeting. Do not immediately reject those that do not conform to your ideas. Think that the idea might have been expressed from a different view point, and be patient until the end!

Always exercise prudence, for it can prevent any remorse and regret engendered by loss or failure. Prudence and safety measures are important resources for reaching your goal. It is a serious error to be careless and negligent of anything that eventually might cause you to fail or to be accused of various things by others. Smart people envisage all possible drawbacks and problems, and then figure out how to solve them or deal with them appropriately if they should arise.

Embark upon every duty after you have carried out the proper planning activities and safety measures. Be wary of those steps that do not result in any material or intellectual benefit or add any value. Every project undertaken without adequate precautions is triviality and nonsense, a sign of foolishness and childishness in the person preoccupied with it. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:

Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels good. If conscience hurts there is still hope.
