Ayahs of the Day:
As for the day of decision, its time is appointed: the day the trumpet is sounded and you come in crowds and the sky is opened as doors, and the mountains are made to pass away as a mirage. [78: 17 to 20]

Hadith of the Day:
Be sincere toward Allah in your faith. Even if your achievements are few, if they are sincere, that is sufficient for you. [Hakim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not press claims against your Lord because your request has been delayed; instead, press claims against yourself for slackening in your behavior. [Ibn Ata'Allah]

Guidance of the Day:
The one whose reliance is sincere has three marks: The first is that he neither has hopes in nor fears other than God. The sign of this is that he upholds the truths in the presence of those in whose regard people usually have hope or fear, such as princes and rulers.

The second is that worrying about sustenance never enters his heart, because of his confidence in God's guarantee, so that his heart is as tranquil when in need as when his need has been fulfilled, or even more.
The third is that his heart does not become disturbed in fearful situations, knowing that that which has missed him could never have struck him, and that which has struck him could never have missed him. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
The finest test of character is seen in the amount and the power of gratitude we have. A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but the parent of all other virtues. If you have good health, unimpaired eye-sight, clear mental faculties and full use of all your limbs, you have the four greatest causes of thankfulness in this world. These are four great corner-stone blessings.
