LESSON OF THE DAY 713
And as for you, after that you will die: and then you will, on the Day of Resurrection, be raised up. [23: 15,16]
Hadith of the Day:
A man should not be alone with a (marriageable) woman, and a woman should not travel except with the accompaniment of an unmarriageable kinsman. [Bukhari & Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Islam wants each individual to take responsibility for his or her actions and to begin to address undesirable situations by seeing how he or she has fallen short in meeting the conditions God has established for the attainment of favorable outcomes in this life. [Imam Zaid Shakir]
Guidance of the Day:
To rid yourself of your fears, you should face what you fear and gradually force yourself to fight it. And you should remind yourself that while fear surely will lead you to defeat, in courage there is hope of victory, no matter how strong the enemy is, if you persevere.
On the other hand, an excess of anger becomes a sickness of the heart called fury. It causes great damage and injury to the one who is furious, perhaps more so than to his adversary. Worse, it is a contagious sickness, infecting in full force whoever is around. Fury renders a person totally mindless and unaware of the consequences of his ravings and violence. [The Path of Muhammad by Imam Birgivi]
Food for Thought:
If the best man's faults were written on his forehead, he would draw his hat over his eyes. We confess small faults to insinuate that we have no great ones. The greatest faults, is to be conscious of none. If we are pleased with finding faults, we are displeased at finding perfections.
