Ayahs of the Day:
Extol the name of your Lord, the Highest, who has created and regulated and who has destined and guided and who has produced green pasture and made it brown waste. We will have you recite so you won't forget except what God wills, for God knows what is manifest and what is concealed. And We will ease you in the easiest way. [87: 1 to 8]
Hadith of the Day:
Leave the things that are doubtful and don't ever act on them. Act upon things you know without doubt to be just and true. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The one reckons his words as part of his actions speaks very little -- only about those things that are of concern to him. [Omar ibn Abdul Azeez]
Guidance of the Day:
"Start the day with love" means that when you wake up in the morning, you open your heart and remind yourself of your intent to be loving in every aspect of your life. "Live the day with love" means that your choices and actions stem from your decision to be loving, patient, kind, and gentle. It means you keep things in perspective and try not to take things personally or blow things out of proportion. It means you make allowances for the imperfections of others and of yourself, and that you make an effort to keep your criticisms and judgments from rising to the surface. Living the day with love suggests that, whenever possible, you will make an effort to be generous and complimentary, as well as humble and sincere.
"End the day with love" means that you take a moment at the close of your day to reflect and be grateful. Perhaps you say a prayer or do a quiet meditation. You might look back on your day and review how closely your goal of living with love matched up with your actions and choices. You do this not to keep score, or to be hard on yourself, but simply to experience the peace associated with loving intent and to see areas where you might act even more loving tomorrow. [Carlson, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff -- with your family]
Food for Thought:
Worry often gives a small thing a big shadow. If your eyes are blinded with worries, you cannot see the beauty of the sunset. If you worry about what might be, and wonder what might have been, you will ignore what is. Bacteria and other microorganisms find it easier to infect people who worry and fret.
