LESSON OF THE DAY 165
No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision. He is above all comprehension, He is the Subtle, the Informed. Verily, proofs have come to you from your Lord, so whoever sees, will do for (the good of) his ownself, and whoever blinds himself, will do so to his own harm and I am not (here) to watch over your doings. [6:103,104]
Hadith of the Day:
The marriage that produces the most blessing is that which involves the least burden. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
He who chose a path contrary to the Prophet's (Peace be Upon Him) shall never reach the destination. The earth of purity can only be trodden in the footsteps of the chosen Prophet (peace be upon him). [Shaikh al Sa'adi]
Guidance of the Day:
The true believer likes to remain unknown and hidden, and dislikes prominence and fame. He does not talk of what does not concern him, and his heart is saddened by his short comings. He accepts no compromise in religious matters and does not please people by displeasing the Lord of the Worlds.
He is engaged in acts of goodness or acquiring knowledge. He is a person from whom people expect goodness and do not fear evil. He does not repay harm with harm, and does not shun those who shun him. he is like a palm tree, throwing tender dates at the one who throws stones at it, like soil on which filth is thrown, but out of which grow beautiful things.
The light of his truthfulness shows outwardly, and what is shown on his face indicates what is hidden inwardly. He strives and aspires to please his Lord, and is eager and careful to follow His Messenger. [Mutual Reminding--Good Manners]
Food for Thought:
Success is a talent put together with hardwork and luck. The toughest thing about success is that you have got to keep on being a success. Nothing recedes like success.
