LESSON OF THE DAY 750
All the believers say when called to God and the messenger of God, in order to judge among them, is "We hear and we obey." And they are the ones who attain happiness. [24: 51]
Hadith of the Day:
Blessed is the person whom God has made a key for good and a lock for evil. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Your finest moment is the one in which you see clearly the reality of your indigence and are reduced to a state of submission. [Ibn Ataillah]
Guidance of the Day:
God is ever-present, yet invisible. Invisible, because no eye can look at Him. If you stare at the sun you will be blinded, while you can view the moon to your heart's content. And what you see in moon is but the reflection of sunlight. Like this, the divine light of God is reflected in His beloved prophet. In this life if you wish to see God's light, look at the beauty of His prophet, and his deeds and his words that came from his blessed lips.
Words are the smell of the breath of one's inner self. It is what distinguishes man. A word is a promise. So watch your word. It is said: "To judge a man, make him speak." Take care to always tell the truth. Speak kindly and positively or keep silent. Do not be suspicious or opinionated about others. When you give your word, keep it under any circumstances. Do not talk in vain without any meaning or sense. Man is not created in vain. Your breaths are numbered; do not spend them in speaking nonsense. Good words are heard by God. And the speaker reaps rewards. So remember God is listening when you speak. [The Path of Muhammad]
Food for Thought:
He who talks much cannot talk well. They always talk who never think, and who have the least to say. Speaking much is a sign of vanity, for he that is lavish with word is a niggard in deed.
