LESSON OF THE DAY 255

Ayahs of the Day:
For those who scoff spend their money to block the way to God, so they will spend it, then distress will be upon them, and then they will be overcome. And those who scoffed will be herded into hell. That God may separate the corrupt from the wholesome, and set the corrupt upon one another, then gather them all in a heap and throw them into hell: those are the ones who are the losers. [8: 36, 37]


Hadith of the Day:
Allah has called them doers of good because they did good to their parents and their children. Your parents have rights over you, and your children have rights over you. [Bukhari]


Wise Quote of the Day:
Hastiness is from Satan except in five things: feeding the guest, preparing the deceased for burial, marrying off the daughters, paying a debt, and making repentance from sins. [Hatim al Asamm]


Guidance of the Day:
Our research shows that married couples who regularly express their appreciation for each other have much happier, stronger marriages. And in our laboratory studies with parents and their children, we observed significant differences in the ways children reacted when their parents criticized or praised them. In one study, for example, parents were asked to teach their children a new task. Those children whose parents focused mainly on their errors made more mistakes. But those whose parents emphasized what they were doing right improved their performance.

Children with critical parents turn away from their parents in times of trouble. But children of parents who consistently praise them for their accomplishments turn toward their parents for support, even when things go wrong.

This same principle holds true to all kinds of relationships. Regularly expressing praise and appreciation can change the whole emotional climate of your home, your workplace, and your various circles of family and friends. People grow closer in the knowledge that they can count on one another for support in good times and in bad. [The Relationship Cure]


Food for Thought:
The greatest dignity to be found in death is the dignity of the life that preceded it. This is a form of hope we can all achieve, and it is the most abiding of all. Hope resides in the meaning of what our lives have been.
