Ayahs of the Day:
Say,"I take refuge in the Lord of dawn from the ill of what is created, and from the ill of darkness when it's gloomy, and from the ill of those who curse, and from the ill of the envious when he envies." [113: 1 to 5]

Hadith of the Day:
Allah has revealed to me that you must be humble, so that no one boasts over another. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Your time is your life, and your life is your capital, it is the basis of your transactions (with God), and the means to attain everlasting felicity, in the proximity of God the Exalted. [Imam Ghazali]

Guidance of the Day:
It is no coincidence that those very people who do good and hope to do more of it are in fact those who reflect on death and work for the Hereafter the most, so that the Day of Judgment will be a moment of joy and light for them. It is wise to meditate on death -- its throes and the various states after it. For example, one should imagine -- while he or she has life and relatively safe -- the trial of the Traverse(Sirat) that every soul must pass over in the Hereafter, beneath which is the awesome inferno and the screams and anguish of those evildoers who already have been cast therein.

People of spiritual elevation prepare themselves psychologically for the ultimate journey. Although death is a sudden severance from this life, one remains conscious in a different way. In fact, the deceased is in a hyper-conscious state that makes this life appear life a dream. Ali ibn Abi Talib, may God be pleased with him, said, "People are asleep. When they die, they wake up."

Many of the righteous forbears of Muslim civilization stressed that one should visualize the states of death and the Afterlife -- their bodies being washed and prepared for burial, being lowered into the grave, having soil cove them, being questioned by the angels, climbing out of the grave on the Day of Resurrection, and being called to stand in judgment before God the Exalted. Reflecting on death brings sobriety to one's state. [Hamza Yusuf,Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
What most counts is not to live, but to live aright. Not only must we be good, but we must be good for something. Purpose is what gives life a meaning. A useless life is an early death. Be a life long or short, its completeness depends on what it was lived for. Strong lives are motivated by dynamic purposes. Only he who can see the invisible can do the impossible.

5 Wisdoms

If you are right, then there is no need to get angry.
And if you are wrong then you don't have any right to get angry.

Patience with family is love
Patience with others is respect.
Patience with self is confidence.

Never think hard about past, It brings tears.
Don't think more about future, It brings fears.
Live this moment with a smile, It brings cheers...

Every test in our life makes us bitter or better.
Every problem comes to make us or break us.
Choice is ours, whether we become victim or victorious.

Search a beautiful heart, not a beautiful face.
Beautiful things are not always good, but good things are always beautiful.

Ayahs of the Day:
Say, "It is God, unique, God the eternal, not begetting or begotten, nor having any equal." [112: 1 to 4]

Hadith of the Day:
The best of you is one who learns the Quran and teaches it. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Our living in this world will inevitably bring us tests. Those tests are subtle and open, they occur in great and small things. Through these tests, God shows which of us truly believe, and which of us are empty claimants. [Imam Zaid Shakir]

Guidance of the Day:
Ignorance urges people to see only short-time relief as a blessing and to ignore the benefits of patience and temporary discomfort. Knowledge opens the eyes to the long term benefit, which lasts for ever. There is a necessary link between intelligence and morality, the willingness to put off a short-term gain for a long-term benefit that ultimately is greater and ever lasting. This kind of intelligence is conditioned by Islam.

Blessings are either roots or branches. The roots are things like iman, Islam, health, safety, and well-being. The branches are money, clothing, shelter, and so on. The best blessings are those connected with entering Paradise (which is the completion of blessings). Faith, patience, good character, swiftness in doing good, and promptness in worship are blessings of God and they are everlasting. Islam itself is the completion of God's blessings upon humanity.

The ornaments of this life are such things as a house, furnishings, and clothing. The more that one has of these blessings, the more he will be accountable for them. To be zahid (ascetic) does not always mean a lack of material possession. There is asceticism of the heart, in which one is not attached to the material world and is indifferent to it. In other words, a person's character and level of faith will not change if he loses his wealth. That's the sign of a zahid. But if one falls apart and plunges into despondency when losing something valuable, it shows an inordinate attachment to worldly life. [Hamza Yusuf, Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
To be simple is to be great. Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. Simplicity is the exact medium between too little and too much. To be simple is the best thing in the world. Simplicity is making the journey of this life with just baggage enough. Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves.
