LESSON OF THE DAY 712
We created the human being from an extract of earth, then placed it as a drop in a secure repository; then We made the drop a clot, then We made the clot a lump of flesh, then We made the flesh bones, then We clothed the bones with flesh, and then We produced another creature from it. So blessed is God, best of creators. [23: 12,13,14]
Hadith of the Day:
Fear the pleading prayer of a wronged one, for there is no veil between it and Allah. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The greatest achievement of your character is that the enmity of your brother against you dare not overcome the consideration and friendship you feel toward him, and his ill-treatment of you cannot over balance your kind treatment to him. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
A furious person who does not have the strength to take revenge swallows his anger. Then his inner being becomes inflamed with vengefulness, destroying him.
Wrath is a passion produced by the agitation of the blood in the heart at an encounter with danger. It is also a release of anger, which comforts a person after being unjustly hurt. In some cases it is necessary feeling, as the world and sacred things may be protected by it.
Courage is a characteristic praised by people, religion, and justice alike. Yet both its lack and its extreme are blameworthy. The lack of courage is called cowardice. That is a sickness of the heart that renders one paralyzed, unable to act to help either oneself or others. The coward becomes a rag under everyone's feet, attracting tyranny and injustice from certain people, and thereby causing them to sin. [The Path of Muhammad]
Food for Thought:
Fashion is the science of appearances, and it inspires one with the desire to be seen rather to be. Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months. Every generation laughs at the old fashions, but follows religiously the new.
