LESSON OF THE DAY 619
And mention Abraham in the Book, for he was truly veracious, a prophet. Remember how he said to his father, "Why do you worship what does not hear or see, father, and is of no use to you? [19: 41, 41]
Hadith of the Day:
A believer is simple and noble and a transgressor is deceitful and ignoble. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Beneficial knowledge is the one whose ray of light expands in the mind and uncovers the veil over the heart. [Ibn AtaAllah]
Guidance of the Day:
The Magic of Gratitude and Acceptance: Gratitude and acceptance are two magic tricks available to us. No matter who we are, where we are, or what we have, gratitude and acceptance work. We may eventually become so happy that we realize our present circumstances are good. Or we master our present circumstances and then move forward into the next set of circumstances. If we become stuck, miserable, feeling trapped and hopeless, try gratitude and acceptance. If we have tried unsuccessfully to alter our present circumstances to feel like we're beating our head against a brick wall, try gratitude and acceptance.
If we feel like all is dark and the night will never end, try gratitude and acceptance.
If we feel scared and uncertain, try gratitude and acceptance.
If we've tried everything else and nothing seems to work, try gratitude and acceptance.
If we've been fighting something, try gratitude and acceptance.
When all else fails, go back to the basics.
Gratitude and acceptance work. [The Language of Letting Go]
Food for Thought:
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
