Ayahs of the Day:
Believers, when the call to pray is given on the day of congregation, hasten to remembrance of God, leaving business aside. That is best for you, if you only knew. Then when the prayer is concluded, disperse through the land seeking the bounty of God, remembering God a lot, that you may thrive. [62: 9,10]

Hadith of the Day:
Worshipping at times of tribulations and confusion is like migrating to join me. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The one who is esteemed by people should deem himself worthy of no such honor or respect, so as not to fall into delusion. [Abdullah ibn Mubarak]

Guidance of the Day:
Know that hastening to acts of goodness, being careful with acts of worship and persevering in obedience, constitute the way of the Prophets and Saints, both at the beginning and end of their affair, for they are the creatures with the most knowledge of God, and it is therefore not surprising that they are the most worshipful, obedient, and fearful of Him (Mighty and Majestic is He!)

The attentiveness of a servant is equal to his love of his Lord. Love is consequent upon knowledge: in as much as God's servant grows more knowledgeable of Him, so also shall he love Him more and worship Him more abundantly. If you become too busy amassing worldly things and following passions to have awrad (spiritual works) and keep to acts of worship, strive to give your Lord an hour at the end of the day when you occupy yourself with glorifying Him, asking forgiveness, and other kinds of devotions. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
We should worship as though the Deity were present. If our mind is not engaged in our worship, it is as though we worshipped not. It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow. Worship is the act of rising to a personal, experimental consciousness of the real presence of God which floods the soul with joy, and bathes the whole inward spirit with refreshing streams of life.
