LESSON OF THE DAY 19


Ayahs of the Day

If the debtor is in difficulty, grant him time till it is easy for him to repay. But if you remit it by way of charity, that is best for you if you only knew. And fear the Day when you shall be brought back to Allah. Then shall every soul be paid what it earned, and none shall be dealt with unjustly. [2: 280, 281]

Hadith of the Day
It is sufficient evil for a man to look down upon his Muslim brother. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day

Before the time of prayer comes, the servant must be in a state of preparation and his attitude must be that which is essential for prayer, namely a state of meditation and recollection, free from wandering thoughts and consideration or remembrance of anything save God alone. [Abu Nasr al Sarraj]

Guidance of the Day
Performing an act for God is ruined when one goes about informing people of it afterwards. Repentance restores the value of the good deed. There is no harm in informing others of one's works for the purpose of encouraging them to do good. But even in this case one must tread carefully.

The life support for ostentation and reputation is covetousness. And the cause for this covetousness is heedlessness. A person permits himself to forget that blessings are from God alone. No good are harm can come to one except by God's leave. People can become so terribly preoccupied with seeking things from other people, they become heedless of God's power and ownership. When this happens, a person opens his or her heart to all kinds of spiritual diseases. [Purification of the heart]
