Ayahs of the Day:
Everything in the heavens and everything on the earth glorifies God, to whom belongs the dominion and who deserves all praise; and who has power over all things. That is the one who created you all; but some of you deny, while some of you believe. And God sees whatever you do. [64: 1,2]

Hadith of the Day:
A truthful and trustworthy merchant is associated with the Prophets, the upright, and the martyrs. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Faith leads to humility, avoidance of vanity in word and deed, charity, confidence, faithful observance of trusts and covenants, and devout approach to Allah-----surest steps to bliss. [Abdullah Yusuf Ali]

Guidance of the Day:
Know that not everyone is capable of independently evaluating all affairs, outward and inward, against the Book and sunna, for only erudite scholars can do this. Should you ever find difficulty doing so, go to one of those whom God commanded you have recourse in His saying (Exalted is He): So ask the people of remembrance if you do not know. (16: 43)

The people of remembrance are those who have knowledge of God and His religion, practice what they know for His sake, have no desire for the world, are not distracted by commerce from His remembrance, summon to Him clear-sightedly, and to whom His secrets are unveiled. Those who seek them with sincerity and zeal will not, by God's Will, fail to find one of them. Sincerity is a sword that is never used against anything without cutting it. The earth is never without those who uphold the matter for God. These are the stars of the earth, the carriers of the Trust, the deputies of the Chosen One, and the heirs of the Prophets; God is well-pleased with them, and they are well-pleased with Him. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
The greatest use of life is to spend it for something that will outlast it. The one thing worth living for is to keep one's soul pure. The proper function of man is to live-----not to exist. The purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be honorable, to be compassionate. It is after all, to have made some difference that you lived at all.

Jazak'Allahu Khairan Sister Iffath. I really liked the "Food for Thought" section of today's lesson. It's such a simple idea, but very meaningful and worthy of all of our effort each and every day.
