LESSON OF THE DAY 435
God is the One Who created the heavens and the earth, and sent down water from the sky, bringing forth fruits thereby as provisions for you; and subjected ships to you that you may travel the sea by the Divine order, subjecting rivers to you too. [14: 32]
Hadith of the Day:
There are three prayers that are sure to be answered: the prayer of the oppressed, the prayer of the traveler, and the prayer of a father for his son. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Blessed are they:
Who have remembered their ultimate destination,
who have acted with due consideration,
who have been content with sufficiency,
and who have been pleased with God. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
When one asks for forgiveness and is granted, and then commits the same errors or sins again, he becomes as one who makes a mockery of Divine orders and prohibitions, thus deserving severe chastisement. But when one follows his request for forgiveness by repentance, then conversely, he rises in the sight of Allah and his evil deeds are converted in his book into good deeds.
Repentance consists of regretting the wrong one has committed, repairing it if it be concerned with another person's right, and forming a strong intention never to fall into the same error again, one should repeat the sequence of asking for forgiveness followed by repentance. When these are sincere, then even if one lapses a hundred times, Allah will forgive him a hundred times. [The Prophetic Invocations]
Food for Thought:
Life is but a dream we renew each day. It is up to us to infuse this dream with light, and to cultivate, as best as we are able, the ways and habits of love.
