LESSON OF THE DAY 520
Whoever does right, male or female, and is a believer, We will revivify with a good life; and We will pay them their due according to the best of what they have done. [16: 97]
Hadith of the Day:
Make the use of medical treatment, for God has not made a disease without appointing a remedy for it, with the exception of one disease, namely old age. [Abu Dawood]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Decrease in one's speech brings wisdom, decrease in one's food brings health, decrease in one's sleep brings worship, and decrease in one's meeting with common folk brings safety. [Omar radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
Verily, with hardship, their is relief. Eating follows hunger, drinking follows thirst, sleep comes after restlessness, and health takes the place of sickness. The lost will find their way, the one in difficulty will find relief, and the day will follow the night. Inform the night of a coming morning, the light of which will permeate the mountains and valleys. Give to the afflicted tidings of a sudden relief that will reach them with the speed of light or with the blinking of an eye.
If you see that the desert extends for miles and miles, then know that beyond that distance are green meadows with plentiful shade. If you see the rope tighten and tighten, know that it will snap. Tears are followed by a smile, fear is replaced by comfort, and anxiety is overthrown by serenity. Those that are slaves of the moment see only misery and wretchedness. This is because they look only at the wall and door of the room, whereas they should look beyond such barriers as are set before him.
Therefore do not be in despair: It is impossible for things to remain the same. The days and years rotate, the future is unseen, and everyday Allah has matters to bring forth. You know it not, but it may be that Allah will afterwards bring some new thing to pass. And verily, with hardship there is relief. [Don't be Sad]
Food for Thought:
Every day is my best day; this is my life; I am not going to have this moment again. If you watch how nature deals with adversity, continually renewing itself, you can't help but learn.
