Ayahs of the day:
Or do you suppose you will enter paradise without there having happened to you the likes of what happened to those who passed away before you? Misery and distress befell them, and they were so shaken that the messenger and those who believed with him said, "When will God's help come?" Ah, but the help of God is near! [2: 214]
Hadith of the day:
By He in whose Hand my soul is, you will enjoin good and forbid evil, or God will soon send upon you a chastisement from Him, then you will pray Him and He will not respond. [Ahmad]
Wise quote of the day:
Don't just grow up, grow better with time and grow more experienced with age, keep being passionate about whatever you do, keep trying new things, be patient and keep trying your best, the path to God is straight through will full surrender to God's commands. [Dawud Wharnsby Ali]
Guidance of the day:
Allah Almighty has commanded His believing servants to fear Him. It is as if He has gathered in this fear of Him every good, both immediate and delayed, then enjoined it upon His believing servants, that they may succeed and gain all the goodness and merits in it, as well as happiness and success. This He did in compassion to His believing servants, for He is ever Compassionate to the believers.
Taqwa, is the counsel that the Lord of Worlds gave both ancients and the latecomers. For there is no good, immediate or remote, outward or inward, but that the fear of God is the path leading to it and the means to reach it. And there is no evil, immediate or remote, outward or inward, but the fear of God is the strongest protection and most powerful defense against it, to escape its harm. How numerous are the benefactions and immense good fortunes said to depend on it by God the Formidable in His August Book. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]
Food for thought:
Forgiveness is the sweetest revenge. The glory of Islam is to conquer by forgiveness. Life is an adventure in forgiveness. He who does not forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself, for every man has the need to be forgiven. The weak can never forgive, forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.
