Ayahs of the Day:
By the sun and its brilliance, and the moon, following it, and the day, revealing it, and the night concealing it; by the sky and its construction, and the earth and its extension; by the self and its balance, and its inspiration with its depravity and its conscience: whoever purifies it is triumphant, and whoever corrupts it is a failure. [91: 1 to 10]

Hadith of the Day:
If the son of Adam possessed a valley of gold he would want to have two valleys, yet his mouth will only be filled by earth. Allah turns toward those who turn to Him in repentance. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Absorption in the worldly affairs breeds darkness in the heart, and the absorption in the affairs of the Hereafter enkindles light in the heart. [Osthman radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
Don't go to bed mad: The idea is that, despite the fact that all families have their share of problems and issues to contend with, nothing is so bad that it's worth going to bed mad over. What this strategy ensures is that, regardless of what's happening, who's to blame, or how mad you or someone else in your family happens to be, there is a set cap or limit to your anger, at which time everyone in the family agrees it's time to let go, forgive, apologize, and start over. No exceptions. This limit is bedtime.

When you have an absolute policy that no one goes to bed mad, it helps you remember that love and forgiveness are never far away. It encourages you to bend a little, to be the first to reach out and open the dialogue, offer a genuine hug, and keep your heart open. When you make the decision to never go to bed mad, it helps you see the innocence in your own behavior and in that of your family members. [Carlson, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff -- with your family]

Food for Thought:
No pleasure philosophy, no sensuality, no place nor power, no material success can for a moment give such inner satisfaction as the sense of living for good purpose. Men cannot for long live hopefully unless they are embarked upon some great unifying enterprise, one for which they may pledge their lives, their fortunes and their honor.
