LESSON OF THE DAY 335
As for those who have done evil, evil like it is their reward; and ignominy will cover them. They will have no defense against God. It will be as if their faces were covered with a piece of night, plunging them into the darkness: they are the inmates of the Fire, where they will abide. [10: 27]
Hadith of the Day:
The first to be summoned to Paradise on the Day of Resurrection will be those who praise God in (both) prosperity and adversity. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The one who blindly follows the dictates of his ego, is like the one who has befriended a sworn enemy of Allah. [Sahl bin Abdullah]
Guidance of the Day:
Jihad is the foremost foundation of religion and its most exalted duty. By means of it, God has raised up the rank of Islam and Muslims, and abased that of idolatry and idolaters. It is the highest form of enjoining good--the highest level of good being Islam and Tawhid--and is the most exalted form of forbidding evil, since the vilest reprehensible things and of sins is disbelief and idolatry. It is an obligation which is a public duty, in which one can either participate in person or through one's wealth.
So let whoever is capable of jihad do it, and let him hurry and roll up his sleeves and be neither lazy nor remiss. And let whoever is not capable harbor good intentions regarding jihad, and pray to God abundantly on behalf of those who go, and help them as much as he can. [Key to the GARDEN]
Du'a of the Week:
Allahumma inna nas aluka hubbaka wa hubba man ahabbaka wa hubba ma yuqarribuna ilaika (O Allah, grant us love of You, and to love those who love You, and to love whatever brings us closer to You).
Food for Thought:
Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves. As a person grows wiser, they talk less and say more.
