LESSON OF THE DAY 653
Thus do We recompense one who goes beyond bounds and does not believe in the signs of his Lord. And the agony of the hereafter is more severe and more lasting. [20: 127]
Hadith of the Day:
Of the excellence of one's Islam is that he leaves that which does not concern him. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
What is there greater than patience!!! [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
Do not get too worried and depressed over oppressions and cruelties, because whoever oppresses you or tyrannizes you is in reality doing himself harm. Overcome your sorrows, worries, and misfortunes through hard work, patience, and faith in the Merciful Lord; one who gives up a straight path, honest and rational ways of thinking and working, will harm himself. Poor is he who has no friends. Whoever forsakes truth finds that his path of life has become narrow and troublesome. Never ill-treat a person who has done good unto you.
Know it well, that there are two kinds of livelihood: one that you are searching for and the other, which has been destined for you, that will reach you even if you do not try to obtain it. To be submissive, humble, crawling, and begging when one is needy, powerless, and poor, and to be arrogant, oppressing, and cruel when in power and opulence are two very ugly traits of human character. The strongest relation is the one between man and Allah. [When you hear hoof beats think of a zebra]
Food for Thought:
A room without books is like a body without soul. Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them. Some books are to be tasted; others swallowed; and some to be chewed and digested. A man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them. The books that help you most are those which make you think.
