Lesson of the Day 1431

Ayahs of the Day:

Those who purchase unbelief at the price of faith, not the least harm will they do to Allah,
but they will have a grievous punishment. Let not the unbelievers think that Our respite to
them is good for themselves; We grant them respite that they may grow in their iniquity;
but they will have a shameful punishment. [3: 177, 178]

Hadith of the Day:

A person who calls people towards doing good deed will get the same reward as those who
follow him and do good; and nothing will be diminished from the requital of the latter.
Similarly those who call people towards vice will have the same punishment as those who
follow him without any diminution in the punishment of the perpetrators. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:

All the doors to God are crowded except for one: the door of humility and humbleness.
[Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]

Guidance of the Day:

The next disease is the displeasure with blame. It runs against human nature to love it.
But the problem is when the fear of blame is coupled with the urgent desire for praise
and approval by others, which is often the case. Being concerned with "creation's
opinion" places a barrier between a person and the state of excellence in worship.

This is considered a disease because the result is guiding one's actions in difference
to the praise of people or in an attempt to avoid their blame or disapproval,
irrespective of the integrity or soundness of one's actions.

What we saw in the Companions of the Prophet (peace be upon him) was complete
loyalty to the ethics of Islam. Many times they were confronted with decisions that
would evoke displeasure among the people and tribes around Madinah; but they
still made them in accordance to the teachings of Islam. The more that we worry
about how our decisions will be received by people, the thicker the veil becomes
with regard to God and His guidance. [Purification of the Heart].

Food for Thought:

Most men succeed because they are determined to, enthusiasm can be rated even
above the professional skill.

Thoughts for the Day....

Happiness keeps you Sweet!!

Trials keeps you Strong!!

Sorrows keeps you Human!!

Failure keeps you Humble!!

Success keeps you Glowing!!

But only,
Faith keeps you Going.

Sometimes you are
unsatisfied with your life,

while many people in
this world are dreaming
of living your life..

A child on a farm sees
a plane fly overhead &
dreams of flying.

But,
A pilot on the plane sees
the farmhouse & dreams
of returning home.

That's life!!
Enjoy yours...

If wealth is the secret to
happiness,

then the rich should be dancing on the streets.

But only poor kids
do that.

If power ensures security,
then VIPs should walk
unguarded.

But those who live simply, sleep soundly.

If beauty and fame bring
ideal relationships,

then celebrities should have the best marriages.

Live simply.
Walk humbly.
and love genuinely..!


Where ever Allah plants you, be fruitful۔

Lesson of the day 1430

Ayahs of the Day:
It is only Satan who suggests to you to fear his followers; but have no fear of them. Fear Me
if you are believers. Let not those grieve you who rush headlong into unbelief; not the least
harm will they do to Allah; Allah's plan is that He will give them no portion in the Hereafter,
but a severe punishment. [3: 175, 176]

Hadith of the Day:
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Allah says: " Whoever shows enmity to whom I befriend,
I declare war against him." [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The essence of knowledge is to know what obedience and worship are. [Imam Ghazali]

Guidance of the Day:
The key to avoiding or removing the disease of arrogance and boasting is to know yourself, your
origin, and your ultimate return. Whoever is humbled for the sake of God, God elevates in rank.
Haughtiness and gratitude cannot coexist in one vessel. Those who are grateful, God increases in
goodness. The station of arrogance only invites humiliation.

Humility, by nature, leads to gratitude, for when one is humble before God the Exalted, only then
does one see the vast mercy God bestows upon His creation, even upon liars and disbelievers.

In itself humility is a praiseworthy virtue, but when carried out excessively it results in abasement,
and it becomes abject abasement before people. Abject humiliation is disapproved of even in the
face of tribulation. Those who face tests with dignity and patience are praised. A hadith states,
"A believer never humiliates himself."Being humble is different from humiliation. Having
humbleness is one of the secrets of success, although it is hard on the soul. It is said, "Among the
most noble things of the world is a rich man who is humble.
[Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It is not a day when you lounge around
doing nothing, it's when you had everything to do and you have done it.

Some thoughts for the day....

Lesson of time

"When a bird is alive...It eats Ants,
When the bird is dead… Ants eat the bird!
Time & Circumstances can change at any time……..
Don’t devalue or hurt anyone in life.

You may be powerful today… But Remember,
Time is more powerful than you!!!

One tree makes a million match sticks…
But when the time comes…
Only one match stick is needed
to burn a million trees...
So be good and do good."
Have a wonderful day ahead

Smile Rebounding

"A smile costs nothing
A smile is something
you can't give away;
it always comes back
to you."

ALWAYS REMEMBER:

"IT'S EASY TO LAUGH AT OTHERS BUT NOT
THAT  EASY TO MAKE OTHERS LAUGH."

All-Wise and is not playing with the dice.

Lesson of the day 1429

Ayahs of the Day:
Those to whom men said: "The enemy have gathered against you, therefore fear them," but this increased their faith, and they cried: "Allah is sufficient for us! He is the best Protector". So they returned with grace and favor from Allah, and no harm touched them. They followed the good pleasure of Allah, and Allah is infinite of grace. [3: 173, 174]

Hadith of the Day:
The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Allah says: "When a servant of Mine approaches Me through the medium of that which I like best, out of what I have declared obligatory for Him, and continues to advance towards Me through optional prayers (Nawafil), then I begin to love him. When I make him My beloved I become his ears to hear, and his eyes to see, and his hands to grasp, and his feet to walk. When He asks Me I grant him and when he seeks My protection I protect him. [Bukhari]

Guidance of the Day:
The various causes that sow the seeds of arrogance can be: wealth, strength, having a lot of something, like a teacher having a lot of students or someone having many friends, etc., and arrogance for having knowledge.

The intellectual and volitional capacities of humankind are great responsibilities. Ironically these responsibilities have the potential of causing people to forget that every blessing we have is a gift from God and something that we are responsible for. Spending on the orphan, relieving the distressed, and all good acts are difficult for the arrogant ones, who feel their wealth, strength, and prestige are born out of their own devices.

People rejected the Prophet's message not because they were not convinced. They knew that what the Prophet (peace be upon him) brought was the truth from God Himself. But they rejected him out of arrogance. People have a problem with submitting to God, being His servant, claiming that they are "free." Astonishingly, these same "free" people are in bondage to their whims and passions. [Purification of the Heart]

Food for Thought:
Whenever an individual or a business decides that success has been attained, progress stops.
