LESSON OF THE DAY 686
They pray to what can neither cause them harm nor bring them benefit, instead of God; that is outlandish error. They pray to one whose harm is closer than his benefit----surely a wretched protector and a miserable companion! [22: 12,13]
Hadith of the Day:
Every sin is forgiven for a martyr except debt. [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Whenever one's knowledge of Allah is strengthened, one's love for Him is also strengthened and one's love for obeying Him is also strengthened. He will then experience the pleasure of worship. [Shaykh Zulfiqar Ahamad]
Guidance of the Day:
If we are reminded of the benefits of sincerity, we may be able to prevent ourselves from falling under the influence of the evil-commanding ego that leads us to hypocrisy.
The main sources of sincerity are faith, love, and hope. Its nourishment is wisdom, intelligence, and knowledge. These causes become active when all our actions, behavior, thoughts, and feelings are dependent on our faith in God, and the love, joy, and security it brings. [The Path of Muhammad]
Food for Thought:
Every noble work is at first impossible. Diligence is the mother of good luck. He who labors diligently need never despair; for all things are accomplished by diligence and labor. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance.
