LESSON OF THE DAY 770

Ayah of the Day:
And the servant of the Benevolent One are those who walk the earth humbly, and when the ignorant address them, they say, "Peace." [25: 63]

Hadith of the Day:
A scholar is a warrior against evil, and his strength is a thousand times greater than that of the pious. [Bayhaqi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Always consider your intellect to be lacking; otherwise too much faith in it surely leads to error. [Ali radi Allah anhu]

Guidance of the Day:
As you focus on being more loving person------without worrying about what you are getting in return-----you find that plenty of love does flow into your life. You don't have to do anything, it just happens. People who are loving and giving attract kindred souls into their lives, for it is easy to love those who are themselves loving. You attract loving people and acts of kindness in your life as you yourself become more loving. It's a giant circle of love that begins with you.

When you act in a loving fashion, an important ripple effect takes place. And even in those rare instances when your love for someone is not returned, it's a good idea simply to keep loving. This doesn't mean that you should allow yourself to be taken advantage of, but rather that you become a model of love and loving behavior. You may be able to help lead that person to another level, where he or she might be kinder somewhere down the road. [Handbook for the Heart]

Food for Thought:
Deeds, not stones, are the true monuments of the great. If one has done any deed worthy of remembrance, that deed will be his monument. If not, no monument can preserve ones memory.
