And so leave those who take their religion for play and amusement, whom the life of the world has deceived. Remind them that a soul is delivered to perdition by what it has earned; it has no protector but God, and no intercessor; and even if it pays every ransom, none will be accepted from it. [6: 70]
Hadith of the day:

Guidance of the day:
One of the greatest faults of the tongue is lying, which is to state other than what is, whether by affirming what is not, or by denying what is.
Another great fault of the tongue is backbiting, which is for you to say things about your brother in his absence which he would have resented had he heard them. Backbiting is strictly forbidden.
Among the tongue's faults is tale-bearing, which is to inform each party of what the other said about him, so as to cause discord and sedition.
Of the tongue's faults is to insult a Muslim and offend him to his face, to mock and scorn a Muslim, or laugh at him in disdain. Also among the faults of the tongue are false oaths, false witness, cursing, making false promises, double talk, all other forms of repulsive or indecent speech, as well as disputing, arguing contentiously, competing for speech, frequent quarreling, and talking about that which does not concern them. These were all dispraised in numerous verses of the Qur'an and well known hadiths. [Counsels of Religion by Imam al-Haddad]
Food for thought:
When the believer is overcome by misfortune, only by repenting can he truly find a way out of his difficulties. All that we achieve and all that we fail to achieve is the direct result of our own thoughts. Our thoughts, not our circumstances, determine how we feel. An absence of negative thought brings forth a positive feeling.
