Ayahs of the day:
Those who give of their wealth in the way of God are like a grain that sprouts seven ears with a thousand kernels in each ear. And God may choose to multiply what anyone has, at will. And God is all-embracing, all-knowing. [2:261]

Hadith of the day:
And he said (peace and blessings upon him), he who says every morning and evening three times; "Radheetu billahi rabban wa bil islami deenan wa bi Muhammad nabiyyan -- I am satisfied with God as Lord, Islam as religion, and Muhammad as Prophet", God-without doubt -will satisfy him on Resurrection Day. [Ahmad]

Wise quote of the day:
"In the name of God" at the start is remembrance, and "All praise to God" at the end is thanks, and perceiving and thinking of those bounties and gifts of His mercy is reflection. [Badiuzzaman Sa'id Nursi]

Guidance of the day:
Praise and thank God abundantly for the grace of Islam, for it is the greatest and most immense of graces. Were God to give this world all that is in it to one of His servants, but withhold Islam, it would be a catastrophe for him. But were He to grant another of His servants Islam and withhold the whole world, it would not harm him. For when the first dies he will end up in the Fire, while the second, when he dies, will end up in the Garden.

You must maintain yourself in a state of fear and anxiety of a bad ending, for God is who turns the hearts. Know that those who neglect their obligatory prayers often suffer a bad ending to their lives, and so do those who neglect obligatory zakat, pry upon other Muslims' privacy, cheat in weights and measures, deceive Muslims and delude them by causing them confusion, whether in religious or worldly matters, and those who belie God's saints and disparage them unjustly, as well as those who falsely pretend they possess the states of the saints and their stations, and other such loathsome things.

"O Most Merciful of all, we ask You by the light of Your Noble Countenance to take us to You as Muslims and make us join the virtuous, in well being, O Lord of the worlds, ameen." [Counsels of Religion by Imam al Haddad]

Food for thought:
The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts. Think like a man of action and act like a man of thought. Action may not always bring happiness; but their is no happiness without action. It is by acts and not by ideas that people live. Good actions ennoble us, and we are the sons of our own deeds.
