Ayahs of the Day:
So be patient, with graceful patience. For they see it distant while we see it near: the day when the sky will be like molten brass, and the mountains will be like particolored wool, and a friend won't ask after a friend, even though they see them. The sinner will wish he could bail himself out of the agony of that day by sacrificing his children, and his wife, and his brother, and his family sheltering him, and everyone on earth, in order to save him. [70: 5 to 14]

Hadith of the Day:
Whoever follows the Qur'an as a guide will be led to Paradise. Whoever leaves it behind and does not follow it, it leaves him to Hell. [Ibn Hibban]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The wealthiest person is the one who has abundance of taqwa. [Dhunnun al Misri]

Guidance of the Day:
To think well of Muslims is to regard nothing they do or say as evil when it can be interpreted otherwise. If you cannot find a good interpretation, in the case of sins, for example, then reproach them for committing them, and believe that their faith will eventually drive them to refrain and repent of them.

Thinking ill of Muslims is to regard as evil those acts and words of theirs which are in appearance good. For example, you may see a Muslim who frequently prays, gives charity, and recites the Qur'an, and you think that he is only doing this so that people may see him, and that his aim is wealth and social position. This corrupt form of thinking occurs only to those who are inwardly vile, and is an attribute of the hypocrites. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Faith is a bridge across the gulf of death. Faith is a verification by the heart; confession by the tongue; action by the limbs. Faith is the proper name of religious experience, a passionate intuition, and a practical attitude of the will. Faith is obedience, nothing else.
