Ayahs of the Day:
Don't you see that God created the heavens and the earth properly? If God willed, God would remove you and bring a new creation. And that is not hard for God. [14: 19,20]

Hadith of the Day:
Beware of suspicion, for it leads to the least credible statements. Do not spy on one another, nor envy one another, nor compete with one another, nor conspire against one another. Rather, be slaves to Allah and brothers. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Faith in God will be firmly established if three veils are cast aside: feeling pleasure in possessing anything, lamenting over the loss of anything, and enjoying self praise. [Ibrahim ibn Adham]

Guidance of the Day:
Money tends to move away from those who try to hoard it, and toward those who share it. If you are a hoarder, you live with a locked vault in your heart. Nothing can get in, nothing can get out. If you are a sharer, you bring out the sharer in others. Then money moves freely. Money is like any other language through which people communicate.

People who speak the same language tend to find each other.
If you are one whose money speaks of protection and hoarding, you will find yourself involved with others whose money speaks the same language. If your money speaks of sharing, you will find yourself among people who want their money to speak the language of sharing, and your world will be filled with possibility. Keep in mind that money comes and goes.

You must not be immobilized by the fear of losing it. Nothing should be worth to you more than its value in helping you live your life. No matter how you chose to deal with money, you need to keep one basic truth before you all the time: Money is no more than a commodity, an agreed upon abstraction of exchange. It is the spirit of that exchange that animates money and gives it meaning. Great givers, rich and poor, use money to bring light into this world. Great hoarders, rich and poor, use money to close doors between us all. Be a giver and a sharer. In some unexpected and unforeseeable fashion, all else will take care of itself. [Simple Truths]

Food for Thought:

If you fail in your exams, there is always a next year. If you lose your spouse, there can be a second marriage, but if you die, there is no second chance. This life is only one opportunity.
