Ayah of the Day:
Thus have We sent you among a people before whom a plurality of peoples had already passed away, to recite to them what We revealed to you by inspiration; yet they repudiate the Benevolent One. say, "That is my Lord; there is no other deity; it is God that I trust, and to God that I turn." [13: 30]

Hadith of the Day:
Shall I not tell you of a ranking higher than even salah, or fasting, or sadaqah, it is: mending relations between people, for the souring of relations is sure ruin. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Iblis fears nothing more than the light emanating from the believer's heart. Thus it is that those who are detached from worldly desires can never fall prey to his mischief. [abu Sa'id Kharraz]

Guidance of the Day:
Each individual is equipped with sublime emotions, has a natural disposition toward virtue, and is fascinated with eternity. Even the most wretched-looking person has a rainbow=like atmosphere in his or her spirit comprised of the thought of eternity, love of beauty, and virtuous feeling. If people can develop these most basic, inherent elements of their being, they can rise to the highest ranks of humanity and attain eternity.

People are true human beings not in the mortal, material aspect of their existence, but rather in the attraction of their efforts to find it. For this reason, those who disregard their innate spiritual aspect and concentrate only on their physical existence will never find true peace and contentment.

The happiest and most fortunate people are those who are always intoxicated with ardent desire for the worlds beyond. Those who confine themselves within the narrow and suffocating limits of their bodily existence are really in prison, even though they may be living in palaces. [Pearls of Wisdom]

Du'a of the Week:
Allahumma inni a'udhubika min sharri nafsi wa min sharri kulli daabbatin. (O Allah! I seek your protection from the evil of my soul and the evil of every creature on earth).

Food for Thought:
Your thoughts, not your circumstances, determine how you feel. An absence of negative thought brings forth a positive feeling.
