LESSON OF THE DAY 661

Ayah of the Day:
We have sent down a Book to you, wherein is your reminder; so will you not understand. [21: 10]

Hadith of the Day:
The most virtuous form of remembrance is La ilaha illa 'Llah, and the most virtuous supplication is Al-hamdu li 'Llah. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
When Allah wishes well, He wakes you up and makes you aware of your own faults. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]

Guidance of the Day:
Knowledge is the criterion of the right and the wrong, the lawful and the unlawful. It is the light that enlightens the path of the people destined for Paradise. It is the best friend of those who feel alone in the exile of this world. It is a beneficent colleague, a guide for those who feel lost, a sword in the hand of the warrior of God, an adornment that beautifies you to your friends and your enemies alike.

God raises the fortune of some people and makes them leaders: their legacy guides future generations. People follow their example and solve their problems using their opinions. Angels follow them wherever they are, caressing them with their wings. The wet and the dry, the warm and the cold, the fishes in the sea, the lambs and the tigers of this world pray for their sins, because knowledge is that which gives life to hearts and light to eyes.

The one who knows reaches the level of the service of God, which is the highest level to which anyone can aspire in this world or the Hereafter. To meditate is better than fasting. To teach is better than praying. Knowledge brings people together. The right and the wrong, the lawful and unlawful are known by it alone. Knowledge precedes action. Action depends on knowledge. Those who are blessed are inspired by it. Those who disobey God are punished by the lack of it. [The Path of Muhammah]

Food for Thought:
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. Life belongs to the living, and he who lives must be prepared for changes. All change is not growth; all movement is nor forward.
