Ayahs of the Day:
We created everything in proportion and measure: and Our command is but a single order, like the glance of an eye. And indeed in the past We have destroyed groups like you, but does anyone take a lesson? Everything they have done is in the scriptures; and every matter, minor and major, is written down. As for the conscientious, they will be in gardens with streams, in the seat of the Truth in the presence of an Omnipotent Sovereign. [54: 49 to 55]

Hadith of the Day:
Everyone of you is a guardian, and each of you will be asked concerning his/her wards. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Live as long as you want, but you must die; love whatever you want, but you will become separated from it; and do what you want, but you will be repaid for it! [Imam Ghazali]

Guidance of the Day:
We hold hurt as wrong. We think that hurt should simply not happen to us. We imagine if we were good enough or mature enough or strong enough, we would not hurt. Longing to be superhuman-----not human-----we deny the inevitability of hurting and being hurt. As a result we are outraged and often overwhelmed when we are hurt or disappointed.

If we only accepted that hurts happen, we would be much more effective in dealing with them. Then we could freely admit to inflicting or feeling hurt. With such a consciousness, we could simply recoil momentarily from pain and not feel damaged by every hurtful event in our lives. We would certainly be freer to forgive and forget, the most powerful way we can overcome hurt. [Judy Tatelbaum, You Don't Have to Suffer]

Food for Thought:
Pride is the beginning of sin. Pride is the master sin of the devil. When pride comes, then comes shame. A proud man has no God. "From pride, vain-glory, and hypocrisy; from envy, hatred, and malice, and all uncharitableness, good Lord, deliver us."
