LESSON OF THE DAY 362
So do they expect anything but the likes of the days of those who passed away from them? Say, "Then wait; I will be waiting with you." Finally We will deliver Our messengers, and those who believed. So it is: it behooves Us to deliver the believers. [10: 102,103]
Hadith of the Day:
You will not believe as long as you do not love one another. [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The day of justice against the oppressor is more severe than the tyranny against the oppressed. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
Recommended measures to deal with anger:
Do not say anything when angry, lest it contravene the Sacred Law, or go against your personal or social interests. Change your physical posture. The Prophet (may blessings and peace be upon him) said, "If you get angry while standing, sit down...If you get angry while sitting, lie down." The wisdom in this is that it prevents one from doing that which one's anger would have made one do in that posture.
Perform ritual ablution. The Prophet informed us that anger is from Satan, and he was created from fire, so we should extinguish anger with ritual ablutions. Remember that the true strength is not physical, but spiritual and moral. This is because, the one who can control himself when his anger swells up has overcome the most powerful of his enemies and the worst of his adversaries. [Sunni Path]
Food for Thought:
Experience is that marvelous thing that enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again. Life is but a continual course of instruction.
