LESSON OF THE DAY 595
And never say of anything, "I will certainly do that tomorrow," without "if God wills." And remember your Lord when you have forgotten, and say, "Perhaps my Lord will guide me closer than this in integrity." [18: 23,24]
Hadith of the Day:
Whoever decides to relocate solely to study sacred knowledge is forgiven before even setting out. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
One of your sins should seem weightier to you than thousand of your virtues. [Imam Ja'far al Sadiq]
Guidance of the Day:
Friends: Don't overlook the value of friendship. Don't neglect friends. Friends are a joy. Adult friendship can be a good place for us to learn to have fun and to appreciate how much fun we can have with a friend. Friends can be a comfort. Who knows us better, or is more able to give us support, than a good friend? A friendship is a comfortable place to be ourselves. Often our choice of friends will reflect the issues we are working on. Giving and receiving support will help both people grow.
Some friendships wax and wane, going through cycles throughout the years. Some trail off when one person outgrows the other. Certainly, we will have trials and tests in friendships and, at times, be called on to practice our recovery behaviors. But some friends will last a life time. [The Language of Letting Go]
Food for Thought:
Know that anxiety and restlessness are of no use. Sometimes you should look at the level of hardship you are bearing and appreciate that things could have been worse.
