LESSON OF THE DAY 436
And God subjected the sun and moon to you, both assiduous in their course, and subjected the night and day to you. And God has given you everything you asked for. Even if you calculated the favor of God, you could not reckon it. So the human being is very unjust and very ungrateful indeed. [14: 33, 34]
Hadith of the Day:
Allah will expiate the sins of a Muslim by means of the fatigue and the pain that beset him/her, by the anguish and the worry, and the affliction and the sorrow, and even the prick of a thorn. [Bukhari & Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
If God is with you, then what do you fear, and if God isn't with you, in what can you have hope? [Hasan al basri]
Guidance of the Day:
Praise belongs to Allah--means that all that happens in the universe happens according to the infinite mercy, wisdom, and grace of Allah. He is deserving of praise for everything in the universe whether, according to our perceptions, it is good or evil, for both are components of the total Divine plan, which is ultimately good, because it is willed by the Supreme God.
The implication of belief in Allah and the Last Day is that we are ever returning to Him, repenting to Him, and correcting both our inwards and outwards to conform to the pattern that will lead to security on the Last Day. Belief in the Last Day implies acknowledging that we must conform to the rulings of the Shari'a to reach that day in a hopeful state. [Prophetic Invocations]
Food for Thought:
That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character.
