Ayahs of the Day:
So is one who knows that what has been revealed to you from your Lord is the truth like one who is blind? Only those with reason will think--those who fulfill the promise to God and do not violate the agreement. [13: 19,20]

Hadith of the Day:
A believer does not find fault and is not abusive, obscene, or coarse. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Faith not nourished by worship and good deeds eventually dies. Praying five times a day strengthens our faith and renews our covenant with God. [Fethullah Gulen]

Guidance of the Day:
Your true stature before the Creator is measured by your energy and the loftiness of your aims. The clearest signs of these two elements is that you willingly sacrifice your own comfort and desire for the prosperity of others. Can you imagine any greater sacrifice than undermining your own dignity for the sake of social well-being, controlling your temper when you feel like shouting, limiting your own desire at a time of personal prosperity?

It is foolishness to consider only the courage of a victorious army and disregard the role of strategic planning. Similarly, it is stupidity to attribute success to heedless daring, thereby downplaying the critical importance of prudent planning and forethought.

Efforts to secure a goal, as well as precautions taken to realize it, are invitations for the Almighty's help. These are two parts of the same reality. A misguided step in either preparing or enacting a project may cause that help to be withdrawn. If that happens, success will not be forthcoming. Safe, steady progress on the journey is possible for those who constantly remain discerning and vigilant. Fortunate are those who understand this fact. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work. One who wants to leave foot prints in the sand of time must wear work boots.
