Ayahs of the Day:
Don't they see the camels, how they are made, and the sky, how it is raised, and the mountains, how they are set, and the earth, how it is spread? So remind; you are but one who reminds, not a ruler over them. But whoever turns away and scoffs God will punish him with the greatest torment. It is to Us that they'll return: then their reckoning is up to Us. [88: 17 to 26]

Hadith of the Day:
Part of excellence of a person's Islam is in leaving alone that what does not concern him. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Don't seek anything other than contentment because therein is the bliss and the comfort of your body. Then consider the case of a person who possesses the whole world, can he take with him in his grave more than cotton and a shroud. [A Poet]

Guidance of the Day:
When you refuse to engage in an argument, not out of stubbornness or righteousness, but out of love and kindness, you'll see how quickly issues naturally resolve themselves. When someone begins an argument or heated discussion, you are faced with an interesting (and sometimes difficult) decision that you must make very quickly. Do you jump in or do you back off? Do you try to prove yourself and your opinion, or can you allow the other person to win or make his or her point?

I'm not suggesting that you stop defending your positions when they are truly important, or that you allow anyone to walk over, or take advantage of you. In fact, I think you'll agree that allowing someone else to win the argument, at least once in a while, is actually a sign of strength. It demonstrates that you are a person who can keep your bearings and sense of perspective. Not always, but usually, this opens the door for the other person to do the same. [Carlson, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff -- with your family]

Food for Thought:
Wisdom out weighs any wealth. Wisdom denotes the pursuing of the best ends by the best means. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom. Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise in time. Turn your wounds into wisdom. We are made wise not by the recollection of our past but by the responsibility of our future.
