Ayahs of the Day:
We have sent you a messenger as a witness regarding you, as We sent a messenger to Pharaoh; Pharaoh defied the messenger, so We punished him severely: so how will you be wary, if you scoff, of a day that will make children grey, and the sky split apart? That promise will inevitably be fulfilled. This is a reminder; let whoever will take a path to his Lord. [73: 15 to 19]
Hadith of the Day:
If you can pass a the day into night and the night into day with your heart clean of any feeling of enmity or vengeance against anyone, be so, for this is how I feel always. And anyone who likes to be like me, certainly must love me. And whoever loves me is with me in this world and in the Paradise and in the Hereafter. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
If you cannot be of benefit to the Muslims, then do not harm them;
If you cannot please them, then do not abuse them;
If you cannot make them happy, then do not make them sorrowful; and
If you cannot praise them, then do not disparage them. [Yahya ibn Mu'adh]
Guidance of the Day:
You must repent of every single sin, small or great, outward or inward. For repentance is the first step that a servant takes on the Path, and is the foundation of all other stations, as God loves the penitent. The Messenger of God, may blessings and peace be upon him, has said: 'The one who repents of a sin is as he who has not sinned.'
Know that repentance cannot be sound unless the sin itself is renounced, remorse is felt, and there is present a determination never to repeat it for the rest of one's life. The true penitent is characterized by signs, among which are a softness of the heart, frequent weeping, adhering to obedience, and forsaking evil companions and places. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]
Food for Thought:
Life has meaning only if one barters it day by day for something other than itself. The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it. Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days it will be. May you live every day of your life.
