LESSON OF THE DAY 284
Go forth, lightly or heavily armed, and strive for the sake of God with your possessions and your persons. That is best for you if you knew. [9: 41]
Hadith of the Day:
Beware of wrong doing, for wrongdoing becomes manifold darkness on the Day of Judgment. [Muslim & Ahmad]
Wise Quote of the Day:
He who truly fears his Lord has freed his tongue from vain talk. He whose heart is in the awe of his Lord, everything in the creation is in awe of him. [Fudhail ibn Iyaadh]
Guidance of the Day:
Knowledge is a means among means. It is not sought in itself in the eyes of the shariah, rather it is a means to actions. Everything that has been related about the virtues of sacred knowledge is only established in terms of that which one has made morally responsible to act upon.
The knowledge that counts according to shariah, is the knowledge that leads to action, which does not leave it's possessor according to what it entails and carries them according to its rulings willingly or otherwise. One should always keep in mind that certain rulings may definitely be difficult to practice upon, but the rewards of Allah in the Hereafter are immense.
Food for Thought:
Fiqh is to know oneself, what is for and against it. The strength of a believer is one's determination and ability of the next life.
