Ayah of the Day:
As for those who violate the promise to God after agreement to it, and separate what God has commanded be joined, and cause trouble on earth, the curse is on them, and there is a wretched abode for them. [13: 26]

Hadith of the Day:
Woe to those who insist on doing what they do, even when they know it is wrong. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:

A Sufi is he whose obedience to Allah and His messenger is as if he holds the Quran in one hand and the hadith in the other. [Shaykh al Junayd]

Guidance of the Day:
Those who want to secure their future should apply as much energy to raising their children as they devote to other problems. While the energy devoted to many other things may go in vain, whatever is spent for raising a young generation elevates them to the rank of humanity. Such people will be like an inexhaustible source of income.

Those people in our community who are miserable and lost, such as drug addicts, alcoholics, and other dissolute people, were once children. We failed to educate them properly. I wonder if we are sufficiently aware of the kind of people we are preparing to walk on our streets tomorrow.

Communities that pay close attention to the family institution and their young people's education. Communities that neglect the family institution and the young people's education will be crushed by the pitiless wheels of time, no matter how advanced they are in sciences and technology. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
Life is but a dream we renew each day. It is up to us to infuse this dream with light, and to cultivate, as best as we are able, the ways and habits of love.
