LESSON OF THE DAY 720
We do not assign a soul more than its capacity; and We have a record that tells the truth; and they will not be done injustice. [23: 62]
Hadith of the Day:
A believer is not he who maligns, curses, or is obscene or vulgar. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Beware of being delighted with acts of worship, for they are a deadly poison. [Al Wasiti]
Guidance of the Day:
Suspicion is very wrong as a basis for action. Sufyan al Thawri says there are two kinds of suspicion. One is a sin: that is when you pass judgment against someone based upon your suspicion. The other is not a sin: that is when you suspect someone of having done something wrong, but refrain from judging or condemning him.
The opposite of suspicion is to think well of everybody. Even if there are signs to make you doubt the innocence of someone, it is still best to think of that person as innocent. To think badly and continue to be suspicious of someone who has been proven innocent is a sin. Thus it is best for you to have good will toward one and all. Above all, you should think well of your Lord. [The Path of Muhammad]
Food for Thought:
Gossip is always a personal confession either of malice or imbecility. The only time people dislike gossip is when you gossip about them. Gossip is the art of saying nothing in a way that leaves practically nothing unsaid.
