Ayahs of the Day:
Who will advance a good loan to God, who will double it for him, so he will have a generous reward? One day you will see the believing men and the believing women with their light streaming before them and by their right hands: "Good news for you today: a garden with streams flowing below, to abide in forever." That is the greater success. [57: 11,12]

Hadith of the Day:
O people spread greetings of peace, feed (the poor and needy), behave kindly toward your relatives, offer prayer when others are asleep, and (then) enter Paradise in peace.

Wise Quote of the Day:
When He gives He shows you His kindness; when He deprives, He shows you His power. And in all that, He is making Himself known to you and coming to you with His gentleness. [Ibn Ata'Allah]

Guidance of the Day:
Life would be more satisfying for most of us if it were supported by any purpose that we deem worhwhile. It usually doesn't work to have another person be our only purpose in life, but there are times when we may give all of our attention to a relative or friend in need.

When all of our energies are tied up with just one other person-----a spouse, child, or parent------we are apt to end up feeling depleted or deprived. Most of us need more in order to feel satisfied. Also, people are transitory, while a purpose, if large enough, can inspire us indefinitely. [Tatelbaum, You Don't Have to Suffer]

Food for Thought:
Men who have attained things worth having in this world have worked while others idled, have preserved when others gave up in despair, have practiced early in life the valuable habits of self-denial, industry, and singleness of purpose. As a result, they enjoy in later life the success so often erroneously attributed to good luck.
