Ayahs of the Day:
They ask you about the end of time, for when it is set; What have you to do with reminder of that? Its end is up to your Lord. You are just a warner of those who dread it. It will seem to them, the day that they behold it, that they had stayed but an evening, or till the next day. [79: 42 to 46]

Hadith of the Day:
The best of my people are those whose strength of religion is like steel. [Bayhaqi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
How can a sane person be conceited about his spiritual works, when his works are but a gift from Allah and a blessing from Him that he should thank Him for. [Abu Sulaiman al Darani]

Guidance of the Day:
Your duty, O believer, is to know and believe that God the Exalted is the One Who causes guidance and misguidance, misery and happiness, and nearness and remoteness; He gives and withholds, abases and exalts, and causes harm and benefit. Having known and believed in this your duty is never to object, whether outwardly or inwardly, to any of His acts.

To object means to say: 'Why was that?' and 'What for?' Why was it not like this or that?' What did so-and-so do to deserve this?' There can be none so ignorant than he who raises objections to the way God deals with His kingdom or disputes His sovereignty, while remaining aware that God the Exalted is the Unique Creator, Authority, Sovereign, and Manager, Who does what He wills and decides what He wishes. [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
Hope and patience are two sovereign remedies for all, the surest reposals, the softest cushions to lean on in adversity. Patience is the art of hoping. Hope is patience with the lamp lit. All human wisdom is summed up in two words -- wait and hope.
