LESSON OF THE DAY 605

Ayah of the Day:
And the record will be set out, and you'll see the sinners anxious on account of what is in it, saying, "Alas, woe to us! What is with this record? It omits nothing, small or great, but takes account of it all!" And they will find everything they did before them; and your Lord won't be unjust to anyone at all. [18: 49]

Hadith of the Day:
God has servants who He nourishes with His mercy and whom He revives in good health, while trials pass them by without harming them like the passing of a dark night. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The true believer is the one whose heart is free of rancor, whose time is spent in reflection and contemplation, who is near to the Creator. [Sahl bin Abdullah]

Guidance of the Day:
Patience: Sometimes we get what we want right away. At other times, we wonder if our desires will ever be fulfilled. We will be fulfilled in the best way possible and as quickly as possible. But somethings take time. Sometimes, we have lessons to learn first, lessons that prepare us so we can accept the good we deserve. Things are being worked out in us, and in others. Blocks in us are being removed. A solid foundation is being laid.

Be patient. Relax and trust. Let go. Then, go some more. Good things are planned for us. We will receive them at the first available moment. We will have all our hearts long for. Relax and trust. [The language of Letting Go]

Food for Thought:
Silence is a friend who will never betray. He that would live in peace, must not speak all he knows nor judge all he sees.

On the wall of every khaniqah of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order, there is a framed saying:

Silence, for breath is a Godsend.
