LESSON OF THE DAY 727
Repel evil by what is better. We know best about what they prescribe. [23: 96]
Hadith of the Day:
He who keeps silent saves himself. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Truth is the key to righteousness and patience is the key to Divine assistance and success. [Ibn al Qayyim]
Guidance of the Day:
Money is necessary both to lead our lives here and to prepare for the Hereafter. Our physical existence-----a strong healthy body, which needs to be fed, clothed, protected, educated, and cared for-----is the carriage of our souls. It is the tool of our virtues and good deeds, our worship and devotions. Only money will secure the energy, health, and security for it.
And again it must not be forgotten that a coin has two sides. Money has a good and a bad side; the good aspect of it is to be praised, while the bad aspect of it is to be condemned. The danger of material wealth is that it may render the wealthy arrogant and cause them to forget God, death, and the Hereafter. Then they rebel against Him, neglect religion and responsibility, and become world-bound, immoral, selfish, and mean. [The Path of Muhammad]
Food for Thought:
He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope, has everything. Hope is the anchor of the soul, the stimulus to action, and the incentive to achievement. To become a thoroughly good man is the best prescription for keeping a sound mind and a sound body.
