LESSON OF THE DAY 749
God alternates the night and the day; surely there is a lesson in that for those who can see. [24: 44]
Hadith of the Day:
Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well and if they do evil you will do evil. But (instead) accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do evil if they do evil. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The sign that Allah is pleased with His servant is that His servant is pleased with His decree. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
The essence of time is the moment, that is the time we are living, not yesterday, or tomorrow, but Now. So use your mind, your effort for that indivisible single moment, for it is the soul of time. It is real reality. Don't you see what is now is gone the next moment and you missed it. To throw away one's fortune is sinful; the worst spendthrift is the one who throws away time. The reality, all of existence is in Now: that breath which you inhale. It is that moment which is divine and belongs to God.
The past is lost memory and the future is vague hope. So if you honor the moment by living it, God may stretch it to past eternity and to future eternity, for the moment of Now is like the soul of Time. As the soul penetrates to all the members of your body, if you are aware of it, so will the Now effect your whole life, if you live it. [The Path of Muhammad]
Food for Thought:
This world is like a steep mountain which echoes. Whatever you say, whatever you do, whatever you think or feel, good or bad comes back to you louder as an echo.
