LESSON OF THE DAY 282
(Believers), unless you go forth, God will punish you with a painful torment, and replace you with another people, while you will not harm God at all. For God is capable of all things. [9: 39]
Hadith of the Day:
A Muslim who stands before another Muslim in hypocrisy and deceit will be stood by Allah on the Day of Judgment in a place of hypocrisy and deceit. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
There are four signs of a diseased heart:
1. To feel no enjoyment in worship.
2. To be in a state without fearing God.
3. To take no lessons from worldly events.
4. To learn something and not to put into practice [Dhunnoon al Misri]
Guidance of the Day:
Understanding one another's emotional command systems makes the formation of healthy, strong relationships even easier. Such understanding can help you feel the way you do and why others may feel differently. Suddenly, conflicts don't seem so confounding or overwhelming. You've got a framework to help you manage your conflicts and achieve more harmonious relationships.
Stay observant, patient, and optimistic. If you take every opportunity you can to turn toward the bids of the people in your life, the rewards of this process will become increasingly more evident, and increasingly easy to achieve. It's like learning to drive a car. At first it seems like you have to pay attention to an impossible number of details--the speed limit, the center line, the rearview mirror, and so on. But with time, driving well becomes automatic and you can travel safely and efficiently with very little conscious thought.
Practice these principles of bidding and responding and, in time, binding will become second nature. You'll feel more deeply connected to those who matter most. [The Relationship Cure]
Food for Thought:
Conditions of repentance are five:
1. Leaving the sin.
2. Remorse over having committed the sin.
3. Resolve never to return to the sin.
4. Return the rights or property one wrongly took.
5. It is recommended to seek forgiveness a lot, and to repent everytime the sin comes to one's mind.
