Ayahs of the Day:
God has decreed, "I will prevail I and My messengers." You won't find people who believe in God and the last day loving anyone who opposes God's messenger, even be it their fathers or their sons, or their brothers or their kin: God has written faith in their hearts, and supported them with spirit from divine. And God will admit them to gardens where streams flow below, to abide therein. God will be pleased with them, and they will be pleased with God. They are the partisans of God. Aren't the partisans of God the ones who succeed? [58: 21,22]
Hadith of the Day:
The scholars are the heirs of the Prophets, and the Prophets leave (no monetary inheritance) only knowledge, and he who takes it, takes an abundant portion. [Abu Dawud]
Wise Quote of the Day:
When God desires good for a slave, He draws close to him by means of (the slave's) remembrance of Him and makes him worthy of Him by means of his thankfulness. [Shaykh Abu Madyan]
Guidance of the Day:
Be committed and willing to overcome whatever you are experiencing, whether you are facing an illness, a loss, a disturbing event, or whatever. That will give you a sense of power over your circumstances and will help you surmount whatever you have to confront. Remember that there is enormous power in taking the stand "I will" or "I can." Even if you don't believe these words right now, by starting to use them you can turn your life around.
Next you must be willing to let go of your pain and go on. Now that you know, it is your choice to let go of pain or not. You are not a victim, for you can choose how and how much you suffer. It is essential, then, that you examine any beliefs or ideas or history that keeps you from being willing to heal today. [Tatelbaum, You Don't Have to Suffer]
Food for Thought:
We must not.....ignore the small daily differences we can make which, overtime, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee. The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. A terrace nine stories high begins with a pile of earth. The distance doesn't matter only the first step is difficult.
