Ayahs of the Day:
We created the Heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, in six days; and never did weariness touch Us. So endure what they say, and extol the praises of your Lord before sunrise and before sunset, and in the night; then glorify God at the end of devotions. [50: 38,39, 40]

Hadith of the Day:
Being rich does not mean having a great amount of property, but it is being content (with what one has). [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Flee to the shelter of God's grace. He showers our souls with His grace. When He provides shelter, how can you lack shelter? [Mawlana Rumi]

Guidance of the Day:
The Truth is your only refuge. Pay homage to the words of no man, but reserve your worship for God alone. You may be pressed to relinquish your ideals for the sake of the world, but you will find solace and renewal in the life of your heart's deepest bidding. Be vigilant. Fear not to look at the world with clear seeing. Those who fail to regard signs of illness are required to pay price of irresponsibility. Relinquish not your view of perfection, and never fail to execute right action in accord with wisdom.

Make integrity your banner and your bastion. Those of integrity are few, and the smallest act of right conscience shines in the darkness more than you know. Our hearts leap to consider those who live a life for God amid the mire of foulness. Be one of these. In so accepting this noble charge, you stand at the rudder of the destiny of mankind. Please do not underestimate your ability to save the world through your vision of morality. Choose rightly, and legions of angels fly to your support. Choose wrongly, and you stand alone in a lost world. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of our eternity. Death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity. I shall not die of a cold or any another reason. I shall only die of having lived. As a well spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death.
