LESSON OF THE DAY 576
And keep a vigil part of the night, as an extra devotion for you; perhaps your Lord may raise you to an honored station. [17: 79]
Hadith of the Day:
He who directs others to a good deed is as the one who did it; and, assuredly, God loves the act of aiding the distressed. [Ibn Abi ad Dunya]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Honor lies in hastening to forgive. Dishonor lies in hastening to revenge. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
Balance: The goal is balance. We need balance between work and play. We need balance between giving and receiving. We need balance in thought and feelings. We need balance in caring for our physical self and our spiritual self. A balanced life has harmony between a professional life and personal life. There may be times when we need to climb mountains at work. There may be times when we put extra energy into our relationships. But the overall picture needs to balance.
Just as a balanced nutritional diet takes into account the realm of our nutritional needs to stay healthy, a balanced life takes into account all our needs: our need for friends, work, love, family, play, private time, recovery time, and spiritual time--time with God. If we get out of balance our inner voice will tell us. We need to listen. [The Language of Letting Go]
Food for Thought:
We do not lead others into light by stepping into the darkness with them.
