Ayahs of the Day:
As for those who fear their Lord unseen, they will have forgiveness and great recompense. And whether you keep secret what you say or express it publicly, God knows what is in all hearts. Doesn't the Creator know, being most subtle, completely aware? That is who made the earth accessible to you, so travel its roads and partake of what God has provided, though the resurrection is to God. [67: 12 to 15]

Hadith of the Day:
Do not gloat over your brother's misfortune, lest Allah gives him well-being and afflict you. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The best of your moments is the one wherein you witness the existence of your indigence and, through it, arrive at existence of your lowliness. [Ibn Ata'Allah]

Guidance of the Day:
Always smile at believers, show them an engaging friendly face, speak well to them, be gentle and 'lower your wing' to them. It has been handed down that when two Muslims meet and shake hands a hundred mercies are divided between them, ninety-nine of which are for the friendlier of the two.

Beware of breaking off relations with a Muslim for the sake of yourself. If you need to leave him for a religious reason then do so for no more than three days, for the Prophet has said, may blessings and peace be upon him: 'The one who deserts his brother for more than three days will be driven by God into the Fire, unless God rescues him through His mercy.' This relates to desertion for the purpose of discipline; but if it be done because of a wrong is being committed or a right neglected, then there can be no restoration until he reverts to right conduct. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
The happy people are those who are producing something. Congenial labor is essence of happiness. Employment is nature's physician, and an essential to human happiness. Continuity of purpose is one of the most essential ingredients of happiness in the long run, and for most men this chiefly comes through their work.
