LESSON OF THE DAY 725
Say, "Who is the Lord of the seven heavens, and the Lord of the cosmic throne?" They will say, "The ownership is God's." Say, "So won't you be aware?" [23: 86,87]
Hadith of the Day:
Whoever humbles himself for the sake of Allah, Allah raises him; and whoever is arrogant, Allah degrades him. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
All things pass away, and so will anguish; but so long as the heavens and the earth last, anguish is inevitable. [Hasan al Basri]
Guidance of the Day:
There are people who wish to enjoy their lives in this world to the full, without any regard to right or wrong, good or evil. They lust for fun. Fun costs money. They spend for their fun today, but need to make and keep a lot of money for tomorrow---which for them will never end.
It is obvious that the life of this world is a harsh test, full of temptations. Damned and detested by God, this world prevents us from remembering our Lord. It causes us to fail in our duties as a human being. Inviting humanity to sin, it leads us to destitution in the eternal life of the Hereafter while offering very little in return. [The Path of Muhammad]
Food for Thought:
It is pretty hard to tell what does bring happiness; poverty and wealth have both failed. Happiness is not a reward----it is a consequence. Suffering is not a punishment----it is a result. The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, something to hope for.
