Ayahs of the Day:
Then he whose record is placed in his right hand will say, "Here, read my record -- I considered my self destined to face my reckoning." And he will be in an agreeable life, in lofty gardens where fruits are near at hand: "Eat and drink with pleasure, for you have earned it in days gone by." [69: 19 to 24]

Hadith of the Day:
Worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you do not see Him, certainly He sees you. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not be confused by ignorance; turn toward and not away from Allah. Have faith in Him and refrain from transgression. He bestows prosperity, and decrees poverty. Fear Him alone and none other, adhere to Him that you may prevail. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]

Guidance of the Day:
Never frighten or alarm a Muslim; never mock, ridicule, or despise him, for these are part of ominous and blameworthy behavior. The Prophet, may blessings and peace be upon him, has said: 'It is sufficient evil for a man that he should despise his brother Muslim. Be humble, for humility is the attribute of believers. Beware of pride, for God does not like the proud.

Those who humble themselves are raised up by God, and those who are proud are abased by Him. Signs of humility include a liking for obscurity, a dislike for fame, to accept truth whether it be from a man of high or low birth, to love the poor, associate with them and keep their company, to fulfil the rights people have upon you as completely as you can, thank those of them who fulfil their duties to you, and excuse those who are remiss. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Do not manage as if you had ten thousand years before you. Look you, death stands at your elbow; make the most of your minute, and be good for something while it is in your power. Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present. The future belongs to those who live intensely in the present. We know nothing about tomorrow; our business is to be good and happy today.
