LESSON OF THE DAY 525
That is because they preferred the life of the world to the Hereafter; and because God does not guide the people who refuse. [16: 107]
Hadith of the Day:
Love for humanity what you love for yourself. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
There are four characteristics that if one possesses them, Allah protects him from Satan: the one who controls himself in a state of craving, fearing, desiring, and being angry. [Hasan al Basri]
Guidance of the Day:
Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest. Truthfulness is beloved by Allah and is purifying soap for the heart. And there is no deed that gives such pleasure to the heart, or has greater reward, than the remembrance of Allah. Remembrance of Allah is His Paradise on earth, and whoever does not enter it will not enter the Paradise of the Hereafter. Remembrance is not only a safe haven from the problems and worries of this world, but it is also the short and easy path to achieving ultimate success. When you remember Allah, clouds of worry and fear are driven away, and the mountains that make up your problems are blown away.
We should not be surprised when we hear that people who remember Allah are at peace. What is truly surprising is how the negligent and unmindful survive without remembering Him. To the degree that you remember Allah, your heart will be calm and cheerful. His remembrance carries with it the meaning of total dependence upon Him, of turning to Him for aid, of having good thoughts about him, and of waiting for victory from Him. Truly, He is near when supplicated: He hears when He is called and He answers when He is invoked, so humble yourself before Him and ask of Him sincerely. Repeat His beautiful blessed name, supplicate to Him, and ask forgiveness from Him: you will then find--by the will of Allah--happiness, peace, and illuminations. [Don't be Sad]
Food for Thought:
It's Allah's word's, not music, that bring peace to a person. Music is a cheap and forbidden substitute.
