Ayahs of the Day:
And admonish, for admonition profits the believers; and I only created sprites and humans for them to serve Me. I do not want sustenance from them, I do not want them to feed Me. For it is God who is the Provider, endowed with solid power. The lot of those who do wrong is like the lot of their counterparts, so let them not rush Me! So woe to those who scoffed, on account of the day they are promised. [51: 55 to 60]

Hadith of the Day:
The deeds most loved by Allah are those, done regularly, even if they are small. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Good character consists in three traits: avoiding that which is forbidden, seeking that which is permitted, and being generous to one's family. [Imam al-Ghazali]

Guidance of the Day:
Each of us can light our own candle, in our own way. We may feel that we have little power to change the destiny of the world, but it is through individuals that the world is changed. One little burning match can start a forest fire. You do not need to be famous or honored to change the world. You need only to be you. As a cab driver, or a housewife, or a tailor, you can bless the world fully.

Greatness is not of the world, but of the heart. Before I offer others salvation, I must have found it myself. Instead of eradicating sinners from the world, I must first eradicate anger, pettiness, and bigotry from myself. Before I can build a house of worship to the Lord, I must first consecrate the temple of my own body and soul. Before I can preach, I must practice. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
One of the greatest moments in anybody's developing experience is when he no longer tries to hide from himself, but determines to get acquainted with himself as he really is. Stop making excuses and start exorcising today! Then go on to pray for, or send blessings to, all the people in your life. Ask to achieve peace in mind and for the strength to become a loving human being.
