Ayahs of the Day:
And how many generations mightier than they have We destroyed before them, so they traveled from country to country; is there any escape? There is indeed a reminder in that for anyone who has heart, or lends an ear, and stands witness. [50: 36,37]

Hadith of the Day:
Do not spy on each other and do not listen to (evil talk) about others' affairs. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
One who knows himself is not affected by people's praise for him. [Shaykh Abu Madyan]

Guidance of the Day:
Eventually, all that is natural will become the normal; ideal and practice shall be one. This is the glorious vision held by all of the prophets of Truth. Until then we must tread the path of learning to distinguish between peace of mind and feverish dreams. The universe will not tolerate illusion, for untruth runs against the grain of all creation. Why would God have created Truth, were it not to be lived? Untruth exists only to be corrected.

The unnatural that is accepted as the norm can continue to be perpetuated only until it is exposed.The ways of the world are not those of God. The world loves darkness and would have its children believe that the darkness is the Light. Popular opinion is not to be the standard by which the servant of God may guide a holy life. Hold firm, soldiers of Truth, to that which you cherish as dear. Bear your loneliness bravely, and comrades of like purpose shall join you when you most need them. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
Life is too short to make it even shorter through disputes.
Do not grieve over trivialities,
for the whole world is trivial.
