LESSON OF THE DAY 566
And there is no community but We will annihilate it before the Day of Resurrection, or punish it with a severe torment. That is written in the Book. [17: 58]
Hadith of the Day:
Honor scholars, as they are the inheritors of the prophets. Anyone who honors them has honored God and His Messenger. [Al Khatib]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The sign of love for Allah Most High is that one follows the character, acts, laws, and ways of the beloved messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace). [Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanawi]
Guidance of the Day:
Gratitude: Sometimes in life, things happen too fast. We barely solve one problem when two new problems surface. We are feeling great in the morning, but we are submerged in misery by nightfall. Every day we face interruptions, delays, changes, and challenges. We face personality conflicts and disappointments. Often when we are feeling overwhelmed, we can't see the lessons in these experiences.
One simple concept can get us through the most stressful of times. It's called gratitude. We learn to say, thank you, for these problems and feelings. Thank you for the way things are. I don't like this experience, but thank you anyway. Force gratitude until it becomes habitual. Gratitude helps us stop trying to control outcomes. It is the key that unlocks positive energy in our life. It is the alchemy that turns problems into blessings, and the unexpected into gifts. [The Language of Letting Go]
Food for Thought:
There are times in life when we can walk a gentle, loving path. There are times, however, when we need to stand up for ourselves--when walking the gentle, loving path puts us deeper into the hands of those who could mistreat us.
