Ayahs of the Day:
Blessed is the One who holds the dominion, and who has power over all things, Who created death and life to test which of you is best in behavior; Almighty, the Forgiving, the One who created seven skies in correspondence; you see no disharmony in the creation of the Benevolent One. Now look: do you see any gap? Then look twice again, and your vision will come back to you weak and weary. [67: 1 to 4]
Hadith of the Day:
O people spread salams, feed others, maintain family ties, and pray at night when others sleep and you'll enter Heaven safely. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The man of bad character is like a piece of broken pottery, which can neither be patched up nor returned to clay. [Imam Ghazali]
Guidance of the Day:
Be merciful to the servants of God and compassionate to His creatures, and be gentle and kind, and of engaging manners, and easy to approach. Beware of being callous, coarse, obscene, or difficult to approach. Teach the ignorant, guide those who stray, remind the distracted, and beware of neglecting any of these things.
Teaching and reminding is part of practicing what one knows, and great men only became great by the grace of God and by their guiding God's servants to His path. If you are unworthy now, then the only way you become worthy is to do good and invite people to it. Evil lies only in making claims and leading others to other than the truth. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]
Food for Thought:
Life is a long lesson in humility. Life consists not in holding good cards but in playing those you hold well. When I stand in front of God at the end of my life, I hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say: "I used everything You gave me."
