Ayahs of the Day:
How many populations defied the decree of their Lord and the messengers! We called them to account with a severe reckoning, and We punished them with an unheard-of torment, and they experienced the unhealthiness of their action, as the outcome of their action was loss. [65: 8,9]

Hadith of the Day:
Every religion has a quality that is characteristic of that religion, and the characteristic of my religion is modesty. [Ibn Maja]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Whoever remembers death frequently will benefit in three ways: he will hasten to repent, he will be content with what is sufficient, and he will be active in worship. [Shaykh al-Daqaq]

Guidance of the Day:
You must enjoin good and forbid evil, for this is the pivot around which religion revolves, and is the reason why God revealed His Books and sent His Messengers. It is considered a duty by the consensus of all Muslims, and a great many passages in the Book and sunna enjoin it and warn about its neglect.

Whenever you enjoin good or forbid evil and are not listened to, you must leave the place where evil is being committed and those who commit it until they return to God's ordinance. Like wise you must detest sins and those who persist in committing them, and abhor them for the sake of God; this being a duty of all Muslims. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
The ability to concentrate and to use your time well is everything. For him who has no concentration, there is no tranquility. The secret to success in any human endeavor is total concentration. A straight path never leads anywhere except to the objective.
