Ayahs of the Day:
Are you harder to create than the sky? God constructed that, raising its ceiling and proportioning it, making its night dark and bringing forth its daylight, unrolling the earth after that, bringing forth its water and its grassland from it, and anchoring its mountains for your convenience, and that of your livestock. [79: 27 to 33]

Hadith of the Day:
A Muslim is not permitted to argue with a fellow Muslim, to make fun of him, or to make him a promise that he cannot keep. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
If you are bent on committing that sin, then seek out that place which is bent on keeping God out. [Othman radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
Know that love for the Messenger of God, and all of God's other Prophets, angels, and virtuous servants, and all who assist in His obedience, is part of one's love for Him. The Prophet has said, may blessings and peace be upon him: 'Love God for the favors He grants you, and love me for the love of God, and love the people of my house for my love.' And: 'God has said: "My love is due to those who love each other for My sake, who sit with each other for My sake, who visit each other for My sake, and who give to each other for My sake."

Sincere love has signs, the greatest and highest of which is perfection in one's following the Messenger in his speech, acts, and attributes. God the Exalted has said: Say: If you love God, then follow me and God will love you. (3: 31) Following God's beloved is in proportion to one's love for God; if the latter is abundant then the former will be abundant likewise, while if the latter is little, the former will be little also.

Food for Thought:
Resentments are burdens we don't need to carry. Without forgiveness life is governed by an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation. Resentment is the "number one" offender. From it stems all forms of spiritual diseases.
