LESSON OF THE DAY 751
Those who obey God and the messenger of God, and are in awe of God and conscious of God___they are the winners. [24: 52]
Hadith of the Day:
As long as you do not love me more than anything else, your faith is not complete. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Repentance is that you turn away from everything other than God. [Abul Husayn Nuri]
Guidance of the Day:
Watch your tongue, do not ever insult anyone. Harsh words can cut deep wounds, deep down to the heart. But when you are one so wounded say to your oppressor "peace" and no more. For it is said: The one who guards his tongue is at peace. The best of all words are in God's Holy Qur'an and the best way to say them is the way His beloved Prophet did. So study it.
Surely soon we will face a divine court on the day of the Last Judgment, where the supreme judge is God, the prosecutors are His angels who have recorded our most minute deeds, our defense lawyers will be the prophets and saints, if we are worthy. The witnesses are our own members: eyes, ears, tongue, hands and feet as well as our deeds who will witness against us. [The Path of Muhammad]
Food for Thought:
Wise men never sit and wail their loss, but cheerily seek how to redress their harms. The cheerful loser is the winner. When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost.
Practice what you have learned, for theory without practice is like a spirit without a body. One who is content with learning alone is not learned, for the truly learned seek more than words. [Al Hujwiri]
