LESSON OF THE DAY 734
As for those who accuse chaste woman, but fail to produce four witnesses, whip them eighty strokes and never take testimony from them ever, for they are the ones who are immoral, except those who repent after that and make amends; for God is most forgiving, most merciful. [24: 4,6]
Hadith of the Day:
Whoever guards his tongue, Allah will conceal his faults. Whoever restrains his anger, Allah will withhold His punishment from him on the Day of Judgment. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
A disobedience that bequeaths humiliation and extreme need is better than an obedience that bequeaths self-infatuation and pride. [Ibn Ataillah]
Guidance of the Day:
Haste causes people to fail. Failure causes disappointment and discontentment with our lot. Then we complain. We forget that all the good things that happen to us come from God, while all the bad things are our own doing. And when we complain about our lot, we are complaining about God: we should fear God's punishment.
Patience is the antidote to the poison of haste and the failure and despair it causes. It is a quality praised by God and man. It brings people close to God. It is a key to success, both in overcoming the problems of this world and in opening the door to Paradise. [The Path of Muhammad]
Food for Thought:
Impossibility: A word only to be found in the dictionary of fools.
To the timid and hesitating everything is impossible because it seems so. Nothing is impossible; there are ways that lead to everything, and if we had sufficient will we should have sufficient means. It is often merely for an excuse that we say things are impossible.
