Ayahs of the Day:
No! By the moon and the night, as it recedes, and the morning as it glows, this is certainly one of the most important matters, a warning to humanity, to any one of you who wishes to go ahead or stay behind. [74: 32 to 37]

Hadith of the Day:
Allah leads to Paradise the one who travels far seeking knowledge. The angels spread their wings under his feet for him to tread on. All that is in the heaven and on earth, even the creatures in the sea, beg God for the forgiveness of the sins of the one who seeks (sacred) knowledge. [Tirmidhi & Abu Dawud]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Be with God as if (there were) no creation, and be with the creation as if (you had) no ego. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]

Guidance of the Day:
Ask for forgiveness repeatedly, night and day, especially the last hours of the night. The Prophet has said, may blessings and peace be upon him: 'God will grant the one who perseveres in asking for forgiveness relief from everything that worries him, a way out of every difficulty, and provision from whence he did not expect it.

Use the prayer of Dhu'n-Nun, peace be upon him: La ilaha illa anta subhanaka inni kuntu min az-zalimin. (There is no God but You, Transcendent are You! I have been one of the unjust, 21: 87). For it has been related it contains God's Supreme Name and that no-one who is worried or aggrieved repeats it but God grants him relief. God the Exalted has said: We answered him and rescued him from grief, and in such wise do we We rescue the believers, (21: 88). [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
The test of any man lies in action. By his deeds we know a man. It is in your act that you exist, not in your body. Your act is yourself, and there is no other you. A human being has no discernable character until he acts. To do is to be. To be is to do.
