Ayahs of the Day:
If anyone acts with integrity, that is for the benefit of his own soul; and if anyone does evil, that is to its own detriment. And your Lord never treats servants unjustly. Knowledge of the end time is reserved for God; and not a fruit comes forth from its calyx, and no female conceives or gives birth, but by God's knowledge. And the day they are summoned-----"Where are My supposed partners?"-----they will say, "We declare to You that none of us are witnesses." And what they used to pray to before will have forsaken them, and they will think there's no refuge for them. [41: 46,47,48]

Hadith of the Day:
Paradise is closer to one of you than his own shoe lace. And the Fire is like that. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The sign that an act meets with the pleasure of the Lord is the ease of its cause and its means, and the beneficence of its effect. No action is proposed to a created being by its Lord which is not within its power. [Imam Birgivi]

Guidance of the Day:
You who would find your place and your purpose under Heaven, accept your goodness in His eyes. See the perfection of all things, and know that all in creation has a right and good purpose. There must be balance-------hold love in one hand and wisdom in the other, and so you have the tools with which to build a new age.

Your work is that of attunement. You can no longer depend on your form and imitation for your livelihood, for these would only serve to weaken you. In meekness there is mastery. This great truth was the cornerstone of the ancients, but ignorance of it is the fault of the present civilization. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
Lord, make me a channel of thy peace
That where there is hatred I may bring love,
That where there is wrong I may bring the spirit of forgiveness,
That where there is discord I may bring harmony,
That where there is error I may bring truth.
