Ayahs of the Day:
Verily, the conscientious will be in gardens of felicity, enjoying what their Lord has given them; and their Lord preserves them from the torment of blaze: "Eat and drink with gusto for what you used to do." They will be reclining in couches in rows, and We will pair them with large-eyed beauties. [52: 17 to 20]
Hadith of the Day:
If anyone transgresses and receives punishment in this world, God is too just to repeat the punishment of His servant in the next life. And if anyone transgresses and God conceals it and forgives him, He is too generous to go back on a thing He has forgiven. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Even if you studied for a hundred years and collected a thousand books, you would not be eligible for the mercy of God the Exalted except through action. [Imam al-Ghazali]
Guidance of the Day:
In attempting to change the world according to the ways of the world, we cannot succeed. In working to bring Light to the world according to the way of Light, we cannot fail. Our will has become His will. When we discover that only peace begets peace, we have understood the principle of salvation for all people, and the real answer to the problems of the world. It is true that "unless you are a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem." No man can serve two masters. No man can serve peace while living in discord. And no man can sustain chaos if he is absorbed in harmony.
Absorb yourself, then, in the highest peace that you know, and believe that God, is making this promise to Abraham, who lived for the One God, is making it directly to you: "A great nation shall I make of thee." Believe that from your simple, quiet thoughts and actions will spring forth a new era of peace on the earth. Believe that the destiny of all mankind is in your very hands, for so it is. Believe that you have been put on earth for a purpose, and as you fulfill your purpose, all the people in the world are redeemed. If you believe that it would take a miracle for your life to bring about peace on earth, then believe in miracles, because God sure does. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
A mind enlightened is like heaven; a mind in darkness is like hell. The cultivation of the mind is a kind of food supplied for the soul of man. The mind can be compared to a garden, which it is as necessary to cultivate as any plot of earth, if order and beauty are to be manifested through it.
