LESSON OF THE DAY 744

Ayah of the Day:
(The light of Allah shines bright) in houses that God has allowed to be raised, wherein the name of God is remembered, the glory of God is celebrated in the mornings and the evenings. [24: 36]

Hadith of the Day:
When Allah destines for a person to die at a particular place, He creates a need for him to be there. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Trust in God! Laugh in misfortune's face; it too will laugh. As it laughs, it will diminish; it will be changed and transformed. [Badiuzzaman Said Nursi]

Guidance of the Day:
O you who love and fear God and have unshakable hope in His beneficence, do not fear poverty! To fear poverty is an insult to God because it means distrust in His generosity. If poverty comes upon you in spite of all your precautions, accept your destiny, and find consolation in having been brought to the way of the prophets, the saints, and the pious ascetics.

Above all, do not fear human beings. People who fear God will not harm other people. A believer is a person from whose tongue and hand others are safe. Keep your distance from those who rebel against God, but do not fear them, for if they attack you, God considers them to be attacking Him. He is the best and most powerful of helpers, and He is sufficient for you. The one who has lost hope in God is capable of taking advantage of other people, for he has also lost his conscience. He is deceitful, treacherous, swindling, double-dealing, lying. [The Path of Muhammad]

Food for Thought:
They that know no evil will suspect none. Innocence is like polished armor; it adorns and defends. To be innocent is to be not guilty; but to be virtuous is to overcome our evil inclinations.
