Ayahs of the Day:
No one can bear the burden of another, and that man gets only what he works for, and that his purpose will be seen; then he will be requited with the most complete reward and that the final aim is to your Lord; and that is Who causes laughter and lament, and that is Who causes death and gives life, and that is Who created couples as the male and the female, from a seed when it's emitted; and that God is committed to another creation. [53: 38 to 47]

Hadith of the Day:
No one humbles himself for the sake of God except God elevates him. [al-Nawawi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not strut proudly on account of your good deeds. Do not let pride waylay you. When you deem yourself holier than others, know that you have fallen into grave error. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]

Guidance of the Day:
We don't have to view our experiences as painful or trying. We can control the extent of our suffering by how we view what happens to us. Accepting death as inevitable rather than seeing it as an incomprehensible event, a personal punishment, or a terrible deprivation, for example, lessens the blows of losing a loved one. Accepting loss, illness, and accidents as parts of a full life, not as devastating events from which we cannot recover, makes them easier to face.

We must realize that we always have a choice to make, a serious and conscious choice, as to how we will react to distressing life events. It may be hard to admit that we create our own suffering in response to our circumstances. Yet that admission gives us the power to choose our responses instead of just letting our circumstances direct or control us. [Judy Tatelbaum, You Don't Have to Suffer]

Food for Thought:
We must have faith in what we can't see. Faith is the daring of the soul to go farther than it can see. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith is like the radar that sees through the fog----the reality of things at a distance that the human eye cannot see.
