Ayahs of the Day:
The day We will say to the Hell, "Are you full?" It will say, "Are there more?" And the Paradise will be brought near to the conscientious, not far away: This is what is promised to you, for everyone who keeps turning to God, mindful, who inwardly fears the Benevolent One and comes with a repentant heart. Enter therein, in peace. That is the day of eternity. They will have what they wish there, and a superabundance in Our presence. [50: 30 to 35]

Hadith of the Day:
Beware of suspicion (about others), as suspicion is the most untrue speech. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The lover never tires of conversing with his Beloved. [Mutarrif ibn Abu Bakr]

Guidance of the Day:
We cannot say "Yes" to a world in agony. We must recognize its need for healing. The world of error, the normal world, is a husk of a seed of Divine possibility, patiently waiting to be released. The natural is hidden within the normal, though the two do not now seem to be one in expression on earth. We must feel the constriction of the husk before we can break through it.

We must see the dead end sign on the street we are traveling before we can turn about to correct our course. The awareness of error is the impetus for transformation. Those who would harp on error have not yet seen it in full, for an error truly recognized is a correction set in motion. The only result of real understanding is change. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
Its the constant and determined effort that breaks down resistance, sweeps away all obstacles. We are all here to work for what is right. Through our efforts we can create a better world. When we start doing the right things for the right reasons, we will create the right world. What are you willing to put out the effort for? "Choose the difficult right over the easy wrong."
