LESSON OF THE DAY 441
And you lived in the abodes of those who wronged their own souls, and it was made clear to you how We dealt with them; and We presented similes for you. They contrived their schemes, but their cunning was in the sight of God, even if their cunning was such that the mountains might crumble thereby. [14: 45,46]
Hadith of the Day:
There are three things that are the right of every Muslim: visiting the sick, attending funeral prayers, and blessing those who sneeze and praise Allah. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Cry not at misfortune, come, trust in God! For know that crying out compounds the misfortune, and is a great error. [Badiuzzaman Sa'id Nursi]
Guidance of the Day:
People who spend their entire lives in order to buy fine houses, summer residences and cars, and to send their children to good colleges, do not want to think that one day they will die and that they will not be able to take their cars, their house, or children with them. Consequently, rather than beginning to do something for the real life after death, they choose not to think. The only reason why people behave as if death does not exist is this spell that has covered them up because they do not think. Those who cannot, by thinking, save themselves from this spell and therefore from a heedless state, will understand the facts by seeing them with their eyes after they die.
People deliberately impose on themselves such a spell. They suppose that by doing so, they will live restful and relaxed lives. However, it is very easy for anyone to make a decision and shake off his/her mental numbness, and begin to live with a clear consciousness. They thus come to understand that all events have a purpose and an inner meaning, and are able to see wisdom in the events that Allah creates at every instant. There are many factors that hinder people from thinking. It is necessary that everyone identify the factors that effect them negatively, and get rid of them. Otherwise, one cannot see the real face of the life of this world, and that might bring great loss in the Hereafter. [Deep Thinking by Harun Yahya]
Food for Thought:
It's not the place that makes the person honorable, but the person that makes the place honorable.
