Ayahs of the Day:
When the sun is rolled up and when the stars fall lusterless and when the mountains are blown away and when the pregnant camels are neglected and when the wild beasts are herded and when the oceans are flooded and when the souls are matched and when the infant girl who was buried is asked for what offense she was killed: And when the pages are opened, and when the sky is stripped and when the blaze is fired up and when the garden is drawn near each soul will know what it has brought about. [81 to 14]

Hadith of the Day:
Of all the lawful acts, the most detestable to God is divorce. [Abu-Dawud]

Wise Quote of the Day:
God fills the hearts of those who love Him with peace, thus enabling them to endure afflictions with ease. [Al-Hujwiri]

Guidance of the Day:
Know that supplication even with insistence does not compromise contentment; on the contrary, it is a part of it. How can it not be so when prayer expresses true faith in God's unity, is the language of servitude, and the hallmark of the realization of helplessness, neediness, humility, and poverty?

Anyone who has realized these attributes has attained to knowledge and arrival, and to the utmost nearness to God. It has been related that the Messenger of God, may blessings and peace be upon him, said that prayer is the marrow of worship, the weapon of the believer, and the light of the heavens and earth; and that who do not ask God incur wrath. Our Lord (Majestic is His power!) has said: To God belong the most beautiful names; thus call on Him by them! (7: 180) And: Your Lord has said: Pray to Me and I will answer you. (40: 60) [Al-Haddad, The Book of Assistance]

Food for Thought:
We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope. Acceptance is not submission; it is acknowledgment of the facts of a situation. Then deciding what you're going to do about it. God, grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
