LESSON OF THE DAY 572
We have indeed honored the descendants of Adam, carrying them on land and sea and providing for them from the good things; We have favored them in blessings over most of the beings We created. [17: 70]
Hadith of the Day:
Three practices will keep sincere your Muslim brother's/ sister's love for you: greeting him when you see him; making room for him in gatherings; and calling him by the most endearing of his/her names. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
You are more precious than both heaven and earth
You know not your own worth.
Sell not yourself at little price,
Being so precious in God's eyes. [Mawlana Rumi]
Guidance of the Day:
Surrender: Surrendering to a Power greater than ourselves is how we become empowered. We become empowered in a new, better, more effective way than we believed possible. Doors open. Windows open. Possibilities occur. Our energy becomes channeled, at last, in areas and ways that work for us. We become in tune with the plan for our life and our place in the universe.
And there is a plan for us. We shall see that. We shall know that. The universe will open up and make a special place for us, with all that we need provided. It will be good. Understood that it is good, now. Learning to own our power will come, if we are open to it. We do not need to stop at powerlessness and helplessness. That is a temporary place where we re-evaluate where we have been trying to have power when we have none. Once we surrender, it is time to become empowered. Let the power come, naturally. It is there. It is ours. When we make a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him. [The Language of Letting Go]
Food for Thought:
Sometimes, it helps to know what we want and need. But if we don't, we can trust that God does. When we ask, trust, and believe that our needs will be met, our needs will be met. Sometimes God cares about the silliest little things, if we do.
