LESSON OF THE DAY 617
Having a son is not attributable to God, Who is beyond that, and when having determined something merely says to it "Be," and it is. [19: 35]
Hadith of the Day:
Calmness and patient deliberation is from Allah and haste is from Satan. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The one who makes gracious patience the foundation of all his affairs turns to every goodness, reaches everything that he hopes for, and wins all that he seeks. [Imam al Haddad]
Guidance of the Day:
Letting Our Anger Out: It's okay to be angry, but it isn't healthy to be resentful. Regardless of what we learned as children, no matter what we saw role-modeled, we can learn to deal with our anger in ways that are healthy for us and for those around us. We can connect with them, own them, express them, release them, and be done with them. We can learn to listen to what anger is telling us about what we want and need in order to take care of ourselves.
Sometimes we can even indulge in angry feelings that aren't justified. Feelings are just feelings; but there is morality in our behavior. We can feel angry without hurting or abusing others or ourselves. We can learn to deal with anger in ways that benefit our relationships instead of ways that harm them. [The Language of Letting Go]
Food for Thought:
He is happy whose circumstances suit his temper; but he is more excellent who suits his temper to his circumstances. Life is not always what one wants it to be, but to make the best of it as it is, is the only way of being happy.
