Ayahs of the Day:
This is a message: let whoever will take a path to his Lord. But none of you have the will unless God wills. For God is all-knowing, completely wise. God admits anyone at will to divine mercy, but for the unjust has arranged an intense agony. [76: 29,30, 31]
Hadith of the Day:
Make each of your prayers as if it will be your last prayer. Prevent yourself from doing things for which you will later be sorry. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
To abandon a single desire is of more benefit to the heart than a year's worship. [Sulayman al-Darani]
Guidance of the Day:
You must thank God for all He has favored you with. You have no good thing, whether outward or inward, religious or worldly, but that it comes from Him. You should do as much as you can to thank your Lord, and confess your total incapacity to do so adequately.
Know that thankfulness leads to perpetuation of favors already received and to the obtaining of others that are desired. The Prophet, may blessings and peace be upon him, has said: 'Let each of you have an invoking tongue and a thankful heart.' And: 'Faith has two halves: one is patience and the other is thankfulness.' [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]
Food for Thought:
The most important thing about getting somewhere is starting right where we are. Everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was. Sometimes we look so intently toward the pinnacle that we stumble over the steps leading to it. Development begins just where you are. The beginning is half of every action.
