Ayahs of the Day:
God has arranged intense agony for them; so be conscious of God, you with intelligence, who believe; God has sent you a reminder, a messenger reciting the clarifying signs of God to you, to bring those who believe and do good works out of darknesses into light. And any who believe in God and act with integrity God will admit to gardens where streams flow below, where they will dwell forever; God has made the best provision for them. [65: 10,11]

Hadith of the Day:
The best of you are those who, when you look at them, you remember Allah. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Whoever forgets death will be punished in three ways: he will delay repentance, he will no longer be content with what is sufficient, and he will be lazy in worship. [Shaykh al-Daqaq]

Guidance of the Day:
When you become angry because you were wronged or insulted, and this shows on your face and you find that your loathing of that deed and the person who did it are more than your loathing of evil that you see or hear about, then know for certain that your faith is weak, and your honor and wealth are dearer to you than your religion.

You are permitted to remain silent if you know with certainty that if you enjoin good or forbid evil your words will neither be listened to nor accepted, or there will ensue obvious harm either to yourself or your property. This is when enjoining and forbidden change from being an obligation into being a tremendous virtue which indicates that the one who does them loves God and prefers Him to all else. And if you come to know that an evil will increase if forbidden, or that the harm will involve other Muslims in addition to yourself, then the silence is better and, in some cases, obligatory. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Forgive all who have offended you, not for them but for yourself. Forgiveness is the economy of the heart, it saves the expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits. When you forgive, you in no way change the past, but you do sure change the future.
