Ayahs of the Day:
And as for those who dispute about God after God has been accepted, their argument is invalid with their Lord; and they are deserving of wrath, and there is intense agony in store for them. God is the one who sent down the Book in truth, and the balance. And what will make you understand the end of time may be near? [42: 16,17]

Hadith of the Day:
Everything has a reality to it. The servant does not reach the reality of faith until he knows that what reached him was not going to miss him and what missed him was not going to reach him. [Ahmad]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Take revenge on your greed with contentment, just as you take revenge on your enemy with retribution. [Ibrahim al Maristani]

Guidance of the Day:
Our lives are transformed not through becoming Divine, but through realizing that all of our experiences have served a Godly purpose. We cannot deny any element of our personal history, for each experience has played a vital role in our training as master souls. The world is more of a school than a playground.

We must learn to walk before we can run. We would certainly not return to grade school now, but neither would we throw away what we learned, for it has brought us to where we are now. The flower does not find itself unworthy because it was once a seed, nor does it judge other flowers in seed form. Are we not all flowers in various stages of opening? [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
Lord, grant that I may seek rather
To comfort----than to be comforted;
To understand----than to be understood;
To love----than to be loved;
For it is by giving that one receives;
It is by self-forgetting that one finds;
It is by forgiving that one is forgiven;
It is by dying that one awakens to
eternal life.
