Ayah of the Day:
In the case of those who repented, believed, and did right, it may be that they will be among the happy ones. [28: 67]

Hadith of the Day:
Allah Most High ordered us to be humble. None among you shall belittle any other, nor are you permitted to insult them. [Abu Dawud]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Modernity: A way of drowning in nothingness. Modernity has not healed our pain, it has only dried our tears. {Abdul Hakeem Murad]

Guidance of the Day:
The individual is capable of both great compassion and great indifference. He has it within his means to nourish the former and outgrow the latter. Compassion is the act of opening your heart. To live in a state of compassion means you approach the world with your emotional barriers lowered and your ability to connect with others intact. Compassion is the emotional glue that keeps you rooted in the universality of the human experience, as it connects you to your essence of those around you.

The key to learning the lesson of compassion is realizing that you are in control of the erection or destruction of those barriers that create distance between you and others. You can choose to dissolve those barriers when you want to connect with the heart of another human being. You can also choose to limit others' access to your heart when you need to, by forming judgments that separate you from that which you are judging. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]

Food for Thought:
Slander is the revenge of a coward, and dissimulation of his defense. To murder character is as truly a crime as to murder the body: the tongue of the slanderer is brother to the dagger of the assassin. The worthiest people are the most injured by slander, as is the best fruit which the birds have been pecking at.
