Ayahs of the Day:
And there are degrees for everyone, according to what they have done, as recompense for their deeds; and they will not be wronged. And on the day that scoffers will be put before the fire, (it will be said to them): "You wasted your good things in your life in this world, even as you relished them, so today you are repaid with the torment of abasement, because of your unjust arrogance on earth, and because you have been dissolute." [46: 19,20]

Hadith of the Day:
Know that what has passed by was never to befall you. And what has befallen you was never to have passed you. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
O Allah! Grant us to deal with others on the basis of thankfulness to You. [Abdul Hakeem Murad]

Guidance of the Day:
Too often, we miss the opportunities because we believe that "work" is bad. We call our opportunities "obligations" or "chores" and we grumble through them when, with just a slight shift in perspective, they can become invitations to the path to God. Treat all of your tasks, however small, as opportunities to see God and to serve Him. This is a sure way to liberation.

We do not need to leave our family or job to give God's love to all. We can begin exactly where we are, and we will find many, many opportunities to "think outward" and to serve. Every little thought and action, in fact, can be of Divine service. If you are doing the laundry, you can fold each garment with a touch of love and a word of blessing. All acts are opportunities to give love. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving. When you are giving love, you are beautiful. Today, instead of hiding behind your "scars" find some way to give love and become beautiful.
