LESSON OF THE DAY 528
One day every soul will come and debate about itself, and each soul will be paid in full for what it did; and they will not be wronged. [16: 111]
Hadith of the Day:
Should you wish to act, ponder well the consequences. If good carry on; if not desist. [Ibn al-Mubarak]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Those who rely and trust in Allah are given increase in their provision and the goodness of their nature. [Shaqeeq al Balkhi]
Guidance of the Day:
The blessing of Knowledge. Ignorance kill's one's conscience and soul. Knowledge is a light that leads to wisdom. It is life for one's soul and fuel for one's character. Happiness and high spiritedness come with enlightenment, because through knowledge, one may fulfill his goals and discover what was previously hidden from him. The soul by its very nature, longs for the acquisition of new knowledge to stimulate it and the mind.
Ignorance is boredom and grief, because the ignorant person leads a life that never offers anything new or mind provoking. Yesterday is like today, which in turn is like tomorrow. If you desire happiness, then seek out knowledge and enlightenment, and you will find that anxiety, depression, and grief will leave you. If someone is ignorant, let him not be proud of either his wealth or his status in society: his life is lacking in meaning and his achievements are woefully incomplete.
How noble is enlightenment! And through it, how happy is the soul! [Don't be Sad]
Du'a of the Week:
Allahumma Musarrifa 'l-qulub, sarrif qulubana 'ala ta'atik (O Allah, Turner of hearts, turn our hearts toward Your obedience).
Food for Thought:
Having an impact on another person, shaping his or her life in some small vital way, is one of the most enduring satisfactions we will know. We teach because we need to share.
