LESSON OF THE DAY 646
On that day they will follow the caller without distortion, and all voices will fade before the Benevolent One, and you will hear nothing but shuffling of feet. [20: 108]
Hadith of the Day:
Two greedy people are never satisfied: one who is greedy for knowledge can never get enough of it, and one who is greedy for the worldly possessions can never get enough of them. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Taqwa is to be free from doubt and conjecture and constant vigilance over one's heart. [Bishr al Hafi]
Guidance of the Day:
You beg of Him to grant you your heart's desires; and lay before Him the secrets of your heart; you tell Him about all the calamities that have befallen you and misfortunes that face you and beseech His help to overcome them. You invoke His help and support in difficulties and distress. You implore Him to grant you long life and sound health; you pray to Him for prosperity, and you request of Him such favors and grants that none but Him can bestow and award.
Think that by simply granting you the privilege of praying for His favors and Mercies, He has handed over the keys of His treasures to you. Whenever you are in need, you pray and He confers His favors and blessings. But sometimes when you find that your requests are not immediately granted, then you need not be disappointed. Because the granting of prayers often rests with the true purpose and intention of the implorer. Sometimes the prayers are delayed because the Merciful Lord wants you to receive further rewards, to bear calamities and sufferings patiently, and still to believe sincerely in His help. Thus you may be awarded better favors than you requested. [When you hear hoof beats think of a zebra]
Food for Thought:
Advice is seldom welcome, and those who need it the most, like it the least. He that won't be counseled can't be helped. Write down the advice of him who loves you, though you like it not at present.
