LESSON OF THE DAY 504
And God brought you out of your mothers' insides while you knew nothing, and gave you hearing and eyesight and feelings, that you might be grateful. [16: 78]
Hadith of the Day:
Give the sadaqa without delay for it stands in the way of calamity. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
I wonder at the miser who hastens to poverty leaving behind the very wealth he seeks, for he lives in this world like a pauper but will have to settle his account in the Hereafter like the rich. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
Trust Your Intuitive Heart. How often have you said to yourself, after the fact, "I knew I should have done that"? How often do you intuitively know something but allow yourself to think yourself out of it? Trusting your intuitive heart means listening to and trusting that quiet inner voice that knows what it is you need to do, what actions need to be taken, or changes need to be made in your life. Many of us don't listen to our intuitive heart for fear that we couldn't possibly know something without thinking it through, or for fear that legitimate answers could possibly be so obvious.
If you can overcome your fear that your intuitive heart will give you incorrect answers, if you can learn to trust it, your life will become the magical adventure it was meant to be. Trusting your intuitive heart is like removing the barriers to enjoyment and wisdom. It's the way to open your eyes and your heart to your greatest source of wisdom and grace.
If you're unfamiliar with trusting your intuition, start by setting aside a little quiet time to clear your mind and listen. Ignore and dismiss any habitual, self-defeating thoughts that enter your mind and pay attention only to the calm thoughts that begin to surface. If you find that unusual yet loving thoughts are appearing in your mind, take note of them and take action. If, for example, you get the message to write or call someone you love, go ahead and do it. If your intuitive heart says you need to slow down or take more time for yourself, try to make it happen. If you're reminded of a habit that needs attention, pay attention. You'll find that when your intuition gives you messages and you respond with action, you'll often be rewarded with positive, loving experiences. Start trusting your intuitive heart today and you'll see a world of difference in your life. [Don't Sweat The Small Stuff]
Du'a of the Week:
When feeling helpless regarding a matter: Hasbiya 'Llahu wa ni'ma'l-wakil (Allah is my sufficiency, and how perfect a benefactor [is He] )
Food for Thought:
I can assure you that once you no longer need the lessons in your life that unpleasant events offer you, you will no longer have these events.
