Ayahs of the Day:
And that it is God who enriches and satisfies; and that God is the Lord of Sirius, and that God annihilated the ancient 'Ad, and the Thamud, not allowing them to survive, and people of Noah before that; for they were most unjust and most cruel; and God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, so they were covered over. Now which of the powers of your Lord do you dispute? [53: 48 to 55]

Hadith of the Day:
The hour will not come until knowledge is taken away, earthquakes become numerous, time passes quickly, tribulations appear, chaos reins----that is to say widespread killing. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Devotion to one's religious duty is the foundation of all that is good, it is a source of worldly benefit, a source of wisdom and all kinds of knowledge, of purity of heart and of many secrets. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]

Guidance of the Day:
We can use powerful circumstances as stepping stones to our growth. Instead of just perpetuating our misery, we can choose to use any circumstances, even the terrible events or anguished moments, to develop wisdom, to alter our lives, and perhaps to contribute in some way to the world.

We can alter our relationship with suffering. By examining the ways we stop ourselves from successfully moving through life's challenges, we can learn to move beyond each crisis or disappointment. We can allow the experience and then just let it go. We can learn to transcend our circumstances, terrible or painful though they may be. Transcending our circumstances, rather than perpetually suffering over them, is one of the major secrets of living a full and satisfying life. [Judy Tatelbaum, You Don't Have to Suffer]

Food for Thought:
If a man was great while living, he becomes tenfold greater when dead. To live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die. Death comes not to the living soul, nor age to the loving heart. Death to a believer is the funeral of all his sorrows and evils, and the resurrection of all his joys.
