LESSON OF THE DAY 640
(Moses said), My Lord does not err, and does not forget. The One who has made the earth a cradle for you, and let you travel on it along roadways, and has sent down rain from sky. And we have sent forth thereby species of various plants. Eat, and pasture your livestock; therein are signs for those with reason. [20: 51,52,53]
Hadith of the Day:
The love for something blinds and deafens. [Abu Dawud, Ahmad]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not introduce ridiculous topics in your talk even if you have to repeat sayings of others. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
We have to listen to those who have a greater understanding of life when they tell us how to live. If not, often our choices can turn into a snake and even sometimes kill us. The ones who do not learn from the lessons of others become lessons for others.
Our rope to Allah is prayer. To love your spouse is a prayer....... it makes a heart feel good.
To help humanity is a prayer.
To help the poor is the prayer of the money.
To prostrate oneself before Allah is the prayer of the body.
To say La ilaha illa Allah is the prayer of the mouth.
To love Allah is the prayer of the heart.
To look and see lessons in everything is the prayer of the eye.
To listen only to the truth and act accordingly is the prayer of the ear.
As long you have faith in your heart, whatever you do is prayer.
Prayer will neutralize the masks you have worn and poisons you have taken to get you through life.
Work as if you will live forever and pray as if you will die tomorrow. [When you hear hoof beats think of a zebra]
Food for Thought:
Man is his worst enemy. Five great enemies to peace inhabit with us: i.e., avarice, ambition, envy, anger, and pride. If those enemies were to be banished, we should infallibly enjoy perpetual peace.
