Ayahs of the Day:
And those who join what God has ordered to be joined and are in awe of their Lord and dread a terrible reckoning. And those who are constant seeking the favor of their Lord and pray regularly, and give of what We have provided them, secretly and openly, and drive off evil by good; for them is the reward of Paradise. [13: 21,22]

Hadith of the Day:
He who does not show mercy to our young or show esteem for our elders is not one of us. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Knowledge is linked to action, so one who knows acts, as knowledge calls for action and will depart if it is not answered. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
When trees are pruned properly, they produce fruit and their growth improves. If they are not pruned properly, they shrivel and become stunted. Given this, should not each human being, possessing so many talents and abilities, be given at least as much care as a tree?

Those of you who bring children into this world must raise them to the realms beyond the heavens. Just as you take care of their bodily health, so take care of their spiritual life. For God's sake, have pity and save the helpless innocents. Do not let their lives be wasted.

If parents encourage their children to develop their abilities and be useful to themselves and the community, they have given the nation a strong new pillar. Parents have the right to claim their children as long as they educate and equip them with virtue. They cannot make such claim, however, if they neglect them. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Du'a of the Week:

Masha Allahu kana, wama lam yasha' lam yakun, wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa biLlahi'l-Aliyyi'l -Azim.
(What Allah wishes happens, and what He does not wish does not; there is neither power nor ability save Allah, the High, the Formidable)

Food for Thought:
The biggest mistake you can make is to be always right. Wise people sometimes change their mind--fools never do.
