LESSON OF THE DAY 337
Most of them follow nothing but conjecture. Conjecture is of no avail against Truth. For God knows what they do. [10: 36]
Hadith of the Day:
For one of you to educate his son is better than to give half a measure (of grain) to the poor everyday. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The one who is not mindful of what Allah commands and what He forbids is deprived of tasting the sweetness of the Divine Presence. [Sahl bin Abdullah]
Guidance of the Day:
Ignorance in a Muslim is not acceptable since we are a community that bases its decisions and behavior on the detailed knowledge provided by the Quran and Sunna; it is not a community swayed by emotions. The most important function of Muslims, both as individuals and as a nation, is Da'wa. When stating that this community is the best of all communities, God follows with the reason why: You are the best nation brought forth to men, enjoining good, forbidding evil, and believing in God (3: 110).
Da'wa is to invite people to God and to teach them the path that leads to Him and Paradise. Enjoining good is to invite people to La ilaha ill'llah, Muhammadun Rasulu'llah, then to following the injunctions of the Sacred Law of Islam and adopting the Muhammadan model of virtue and nobility of character and behavior. It is also to dissuade people from worshipping other than God, ascribing to God attributes that limit His infinity, blemish His perfection, or do away with His transcendence. [Key to the GARDEN]
Food for Thought:
Take the time to live!
Do not value the THINGS, you have in your life.
But value WHO you have in your life.
