Ayah of the Day:
For those who respond to their Lord is the best; as for those who do not respond to their Lord, even if they had everything on earth and its like besides, they could not redeem themselves with it. They are the ones who will have a painful reckoning; and their abode will be hell. [13: 18]

Hadith of the Day:
The dispensers of justice will be seated on pulpits of light beside God....(They are) those who do justice in their rulings, in matters relating to their families and all that they undertake to do. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Learn sacred knowledge for it is a source of reverence for one who does so for the sake of God. Seeking it is worship, and reviewing it is supplication. Researching it is a (form) of Jihad. Teaching it to one lacking knowledge of it is charity. Spending for its possessors is a path of nearness to God. [Mu'adh bin Jabal]

Guidance of the Day:
So many who have initiated projects have regretted their actions or blamed fate, just because they failed to assess their situation prudently and confidently. Such people are doubly error: for inadequate deliberation and then for criticizing fate.

However great a project's goal, always take the proper precautions required to attain it. If you do not establish a real plan of action and carefully weigh potential advantages and drawbacks, either you are not serious or you are simply foolish. The efforts of such people are often more harmful than their inaction.

People demonstrate their own virtue and worth through the success they achieve after facing very tough trials and awkward circumstances. Their success under adverse conditions depends primarily on formulating a realistic plan and then sticking to it. Accordingly, a person's worth and virtue are proportional to the resulting success, and one's success is proportional to the degree of prudence exercised before setting out on the venture. [Peals of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
Never look down on someone unless you are helping them up. You can't expect people to look eye to eye with you if you are looking down on them.
