LESSON OF THE DAY 756
It is to God that all in the heavens and the earth belongs. God knows what you are about; and one day God will bring them back and tell them what they did; and God knows everything. [24: 64]
Hadith of the Day:
I have left two things for you to hold onto, to save yourselves from Satan, and if you hold firm to them, you will never go astray. That is the Book of Allah and my sunna. [Hakim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The trials that arrive in this world are but reminders to you of what you ignore of indigence. [Ibn Ataillah]
Guidance of the Day:
We can never truly be happy if we are spiritually empty, focused on getting rather than giving. Decisions based on satisfying the ego do not bring happiness, peace, love, or fulfillment. On the contrary, they bring sadness, disappointment, darkness, conflict, and emptiness. There is no room for peace of mind or love in our hearts when the ego is telling us to value anger and hate. The moment we accept the belief that we are victims, fear and anger dominate our lives. When anger seems justified, we can be sure of one thing at least: peace of mind is not our goal.
It has been said many times by spiritual leaders that the best way to experience peace of mind is to become immersed in helping others. When you spend just one moment putting the interests of another soul above your own, that is the moment when God's presence can be felt most strongly. [Out of Darkness into the Light]
Food for Thought:
Manners easily and rapidly mature into morals. A man's own good breeding is the best security against other people's ill manners. A man's own manner and character is what most becomes him.
