LESSON OF THE DAY 513
God commands justice, and goodness, and giving to relatives; and forbids indecency, and abomination and injustice, cautioning you that you may be mindful. [16: 90]
Hadith od the Day:
There is no obedience to the created beings when it entails disobedience to the Creator. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote f the Day:
A person's observance of God's commands and prohibitions is only proportionate to the strength of his faith. [Imam al Haddad]
Guidance of the Day:
Today is all that you have. If you are truthful with yourself and have a firm, solid resolve, you will undoubtedly convince yourself of the following: Today is my last day to live. When you achieve this attitude, you will profit from every moment of your day, by developing your personality, expanding your abilities, and purifying your deeds. Then you say to yourself:
Today I shall be refined in my speech and will utter neither evil speech nor obscenity. Also I shall not backbite. Today I will strive to be obedient to my Lord, pray in the best manner possible, do more voluntary acts of righteousness, recite the Quran, and read beneficial books. I will plant goodness into my heart and extract from it the roots of evil--such as pride, jealousy , and hypocrisy. Today I will try to help others--to visit the sick, to feed the hungry, to stand side by side with the oppressed and weak. I will pay respect to the scholar, be merciful to the young, and reverent to the old.
O'past that has departed and is gone, I will not cry over you. You will not see me remembering you, because you have traveled away from me never to return. O' future, you are in the realm of the unseen, so I will not be obsessed by your dreams. I will not be preoccupied about what is to come because tomorrow is nothing and has not yet been created. 'Today is my only day' is one of the most important statements in the dictionary of happiness, for those who desire to live life in its fullest splendor and brilliance. [Don't be Sad]
Food for Thought:
Try to learn from the past, rather than repeating it and making references to it all the time.
