LESSON OF THE DAY 765

Ayah of the Day:
And it is He Who has released the two waters, one fresh and sweet, one salty and bitter, and put a gap between them, and a forbidden barrier. [25: 53]

Hadith of the Day:
The best worship for the faithful is to know what is right and what is wrong, with the intention of applying it in their lives. [Tabarani]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Whoever desires sound taqwa, let him abandon all sins. [Sahl bin Abdullah]

Guidance of the Day:
Be aware of when you are judging others. Try to let go of those judgments, because they are walls between people. Judgments create hostility, while letting go of them allows you to embrace and love others. If you lead with love, others will respond with love.

Next is gratitude---a wonderful precursor to happiness and love. We are often like harried consumers who rush into the store to buy dozens of doughnuts but, once they get home, moan and groan about the holes in the doughnuts. We forget to see the abundance of doughnuts-----we see only what's lacking. As you go through your daily activities, allow yourself to look for substance and abundance, rather than focusing on the holes. This attitude goes a long way toward opening your heart, your mind, and your spirit to happy, loving feelings. [Handbook for the Heart]

Food for Thought:
Never stop forgiving, for the temptation to project and judge will always be there as long as you are living in the body. Forgiveness is the key to peace and happiness, and gives us everything that we could possibly want.

An excellent guidance on not judging others, as exemplified by the Sufi tale, The Judgement of God
