LESSON OF THE DAY 769
Blessed is the One Who put constellations in the sky, and put a lamp therein, and a light-giving moon: and He is the One Who made the night and the day alternate, for those who want to be mindful, and those who want to be grateful. [25: 61,62]
Hadith of the Day:
There is no greater worship in the opinion of God than the knowledge of one's religion. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The most noble of mankind in the world are the generous, and the most noble in the after life are the God fearing. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
It is easy to find faults in others, but much more difficult to look at ourselves and our own faults with honesty. We are often in denial about our own faults; we don't like to see them too clearly. When we genuinely attempt to treat others as we would like to be treated, we become much kinder, more compassionate, and more tolerant. No one wants to be hurt or to be treated unkindly or disrespectfully. And although many of us were taught to treat others as we would like to be treated, we usually insist that others extend this courtesy to us before we do so. We have to reverse this process. If we were the ones to offer love and kindness, even if we didn't always get something in return, we would live in a much loving world.
It's important to love and appreciate the little things in life, all the beauty that God has created. When we do, it's as though the universe opens up and envelops us in love. A wonderful expanding cycle begins to take place. The more you notice the love, the miracles, and the beauty around you, the more love comes into your life. The more you love, the greater your ability to love. And the process perpetuates itself. As you love the world and the people in it, you find this love manifests itself and returns to you. [Handbook for the Heart]
Food for Thought:
Money is not required to buy one necessity of the soul. He that is of the opinion money will do everything may well be suspected of doing everything for money. Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust.
