Ayahs of the Day:
Believers, don't let your properties or your children divert you from remembrance of God; any who do that will be the losers. And give of what We have provided you, before death comes to one of you and he says, "My Lord, why didn't You let me stay awhile-------I would have given charity, and would have been among the righteous." But God will not let a soul stay behind when its time has come; and God is fully aware of what you do. [63: 9,10,11]

Hadith of the Day:
There is no obedience to the created beings when it entails disobedience to the Creator. [Tirmidhi & Ahmad]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Judge your worth in the Creator's sight by how much space He occupies in your heart, and your worth in people's eyes by how you treat them. Do not neglect the Truth even for a moment. [Fethullah Gulen]

Guidance of the Day:
You must hold fast to the Book and the sunna. Take refuge in them, for they are the upright religion of God, and His straight path. Those who adhere to them find safety, profit, guidance and protection, while those who deviate from them go astray, grieve, lose, and are broken. Let them govern you and control what you do, and consult them in your every affair, in obedience to the counsel of God and that of His Messenger.

If it pleases you to be well-guided along the white road in which there is neither crookedness nor curvature, then measure all your intentions, traits, acts, and words against the Book and sunna, then retain whatever conforms to them and abandon whatever does not. And always be cautious and follow the better alternative. Never innovate in religion, nor follow the ways of the non-believers, or else you will lose both this world and the hereafter, which thing is the manifest loss. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
We are all dust and clay until we find inspiration in our lives. When we are inspired, we change the world, not by changing others, but by changing ourselves. If everyone on this planet felt inspired and breathed life into each other, we would have a world of companionship and love. Inspire deeply for yourself and all those in your life.
