LESSON OF THE DAY 763
And it is He Who sends the winds as heralds of good in advance of divine mercy: and We shower pure water from the sky, that We may revive a dead land with it, and provide drink for the multitude of livestock and humans We created. [25: 48,49]
Hadith of the Day:
Don't insult my companions. Even if someone should donate as much gold as the mountain of Uhud, he will not receive praise from Allah equal to that received for half a handful donated by my Companions. [Bukhari & Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
There is no helper other than Allah; there is no guide other than the Prophet of Allah; there is no provision other than taqwa; and there is no work other than perseverance in taqwa. [Sahl bin Abdullah]
Guidance of the Day:
Can there be anything more important than acknowledging others by saying just these two words: "Thank you." As we make the choice to lift ourselves up from the perceptual world and live in the world of God's love, "thank you" becomes a way of life. As we become aware of God's gifts of eternal love and peace, the words "thank you" are increasingly the only ones on our lips.
We can learn to say "thank you" for the day whether it is stormy or sunny. Everything that happens in the perceptual world is but a new opportunity to choose the belief system of love, of God, and world where there is no form but only love. Imagine what the world would be if the only words we spoke, to God and one another, were "Thank you!" Each time we express our gratitude by extending our love to all, there is a little more light in the world, and a little less darkness. [Out of the Darkness into the Light]
Food for Thought:
Prayer is the food of the soul. When you have faith and trust in God, nothing is impossible; there is always hope, there is always joy, there is always love, there is always tranquility and peace.
