LESSON OF THE DAY 650
Exalted is God, the true ruler. Do not rush with the Recital before its revelation to you is concluded; but say, "My Lord, increase me in knowledge". [20: 114]
Hadith of the Day:
The pleasure of Allah is in the pleasure of the father, and the displeasure of Allah is in the displeasure of the father. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not let your difficulties fill you with anxiety; after all, it is only in the darkest nights that the stars shine more brilliantly. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
By keeping the company of good people, you will develop goodness in your character, and by avoiding the company of wicked persons you will abstain from wickedness. To oppress a weak and helpless person is the worst form of tyranny and wickedness. If your kindness or indulgence is going to bring forth cruel results, then severity and strictness is the real kindness.
Do not rely on vain hopes, because vain hopes are the assets of idiots and fools. Wisdom is the name of the trait of remembering experiences and making use of them. The best experience is the one that gives the best warning and advice. Take advantage of opportunities before they turn their backs upon you. The worst form of folly is to waste the opportunities of this life and to lose salvation. [When you hear hoof beats think of a zebra]
Food for Thought:
Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Nothing is so wretched or foolish as to anticipate misfortunes. What madness it is to be expecting evil before it comes!
