Ayah of the Day:
The description of the garden promised to the conscientious: rivers flow below it; its fruit is perpetual, as is its shade. That is the reward for those who are conscientious; while the reward of the scoffers is fire. [13: 35]

Hadith of the Day:
Do not quarrel with your brother, do not make fun of him, and do not promise to meet him and then fail to do so. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
If one seeks peace in something other than God then know that, that thing has become the means for his destruction. [Ibn Ataillah]

Guidance of the Day:
Women train and educate children, and establish order, peace, and harmony in the house. They are the first teachers in the school of humanity. At a time when some are in search of a new place for them in the society, we would like to remind them once again of the unique position God bestowed upon them. A woman awake to virtue in her inner world resembles a crystal chandelier that, with every movement, sends light throughout the house. The most important thing a woman should know is social breeding.

A house that contains an honorable, well-mannered woman loyal to her home is a corner from Heaven. The sounds and breaths heard there are no different from the musical voices of the young people of Paradise and the burbling of the Kawthar stream in Heaven. A good woman speaks wisdom, has a delicate, refined spirit. Her behavior inspires admiration and respect. Familiar looks sense this sacred side of her, and turn instinctive feeling to contemplation.

A woman's inner depth, chastity, and dignity elevate her higher than angels and cause her to resemble an unmatched diamond. A disreputable woman is a false coin, and an undignified woman is a puppet to be ridiculed. In the destructive atmosphere of such women, it is possible to find neither a healthy home nor a sound generation. [Peals of Wisdom]

Food for Thought:
Giving is a miracle that can transform the heaviest of hearts....the world expands, a moment of goodness is created, and something new comes into being where before, there was nothing.
