LESSON OF THE DAY 523
The ones who forge falsehood are those who do not believe in the signs of God; they are the ones who are liars. [16: 105]
Hadith of the Day:
Keep God in mind wherever you are; follow a wrong with a right that offsets it; and treat people courteously. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The one who has not observed the rights of people cannot possibly observe the rights of God. [Othman radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
Your recompense is with Allah. When Allah, the Exalted, takes something away from you, He compensates you with something better, but only if you are patient and seek your reward from Him. So do not feel excessive sorrow over some misfortune, because the One Who decreed it has with Him Paradise: recompense and a great reward. Those that are afflicted in this world and are close to Allah will be praised in the highest part of heaven. We must contemplate the reward one receives for forbearing hardship.
Truly, the life of this world is short and its treasures are few. The Hereafter is better and everlasting, and whosoever is afflicted here shall find his reward there. And whosoever works hard here shall find ease there. As for those who cling to this world, who are attached to it, and who are in love with it, the hardest thing for them to bear would be to lose the world's comforts and riches; they desire to enjoy this life alone. What they perceive around them is this life alone: they are blind to its impermanence and insignificance.
If you are patient you lose nothing; and though you may not perceive it, you are profiting. The person who is afflicted with hardship should reflect upon the outcome in the Hereafter, the outcome for those who are patient. [Don't be Sad]
Food for Thought:
If you wonder about the difference between attachment and enjoyment, ask yourself how you would react if suddenly an object you valued was gone.
