Ayahs of the Day:
Everlasting gardens, where they will enter, and the upright ones among their parents, their spouses, and their children; and the angels enter their presence from every gateway: "Peace be upon you, for you were constant; and how excellent the reward of paradise!" [13: 23,24]

Hadith of the Day:
No mercy will be shown to those who show no mercy, and no forgiveness will be given to those who cannot forgive others. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Save yourself from the life of heedlessness, for which sleeping one ever attained his goal? But for the friends of Allah sleep is a bounty. [Shaykh al Junayd]

Guidance of the Day:
A child has the same meaning for humanity's continuation as a seed for a forest's continued growth and multiplication. People who neglect their children decay gradually, and those who abandon them to a foreign culture risk losing their identity.

Children form the most active and productive part of a community after every thirty or forty years. Those who ignore their young generation should consider how important an element of their own community's life they are disregarding, and then shudder.

The vices observed in today's generation, the incompetence of some administrators, and other social problems are the direct result of the conditions prevailing thirty years ago, and of that time's ruling elite. Likewise, those entrusted with educating today's young people are responsible for the vices and virtues that will appear thirty years from now. [Pearls of Purity]

Food for Thought:
Yesterday is a canceled check; tomorrow is a promissory note; today is the only cash you have--so spend it wisely.
