Ayahs of the Day:
By the fig and the olive and Mount Sinai, and this secure city, We have made man in the finest order; then We return him to the lowest of the low, except those who believe and do good works -- for them there's reward without end. So what can belie you, henceforth, regarding the Judgment? Isn't God the wisest of judges? [95: 1 to 8]
Hadith of the Day:
It is sufficient evil for a man to look down upon his Muslim brother. [Bukhari & Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Move you heart with the Qur'an. If you do not, then it is feared that it may be moved instead by its lowly passions and its desires for fleeting worldly pleasures; and even worse by sins. [Shaykh Fadhl]
Guidance of the Day:
Become less easily bothered. The payback for becoming less easily bothered is monumental! Your stress level will be reduced. You'll be more accepting of the people and events in life. You have far more fun and will become more interested in, and interested to, other people. You will be a better role model to your family and friends. You'll be less reactive.
You see life less as a burden and more as an adventure. You'll be less tired and irritated. You'll turn your ordinary life into an extraordinary experience. The truth is, being bothered is no fun. It's a huge distraction to a quality life and the ultimate expression of sweating the small stuff. Plus, it's a real turnoff to other people. [Carlson, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff -- with your family]
Food for Thought:
Blessed to us is the night, for it reveals the stars. Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seamed with scars; and through their tears have the sorrowful first seen the gates of heaven. The soul would have no rainbow had the eye no tears. We are never ripe till we have been made so by suffering.
