Ayahs of the Day:
By the sky, with the constellations, and the promised day, and witness and witnessed, perish the keepers of the trench of fire with fuel: they sat by witness to what they were doing to the believers, whom they resented only because they believed in God, the Almighty, the Praiseworthy, to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And God is witness to everything. [85: 1 to 9]

Hadith of the Day:
Learn to lock up your tongue in the prison of your mouths. [Tabarani]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The one who is esteemed by people should deem himself worthy of no such honor or respect, so as not to fall into delusion. [Abdullah ibn al-Mubarak]

Guidance of the Day:
People have different preferences regarding the types of other people they choose to spend time with. For example, generally speaking, I'd rather not spend too much time around people who are irritable and easily annoyed. I also prefer to avoid people who like to commiserate and complain. Part of my preference has to do with the fact that I acknowledge that I'm affected by the people around me. So, if I spend time with complainers, I tend to do a little more complaining myself, and so forth.

This strategy has the potential to have a major influence on the quality of your life. The people around you, particularly those you choose to spend time with, have a great deal of influence on your attitude and state of well-being. If you choose to keep good company, your life will be easier and far less stressful. [Carlson, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff -- with your family]

Food for Thought:
The purpose of life is a life of purpose. Life has a value only when it has something valuable as its object. Having a goal is a state of happiness. You must have long-range goals to keep you from being frustrated by short-range failures. Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.
