LESSON OF THE DAY 771
(The servants of the Benevolent One are those) who meditate on their Lord by night, prostrating themselves and standing up; and those who say, "Our Lord, deflect the torment of hell from us, for its agony is unrelenting; it is indeed wretched as a dwelling place and an abode. [[25: 64,65,66]
Hadith of the Day:
Everything has a support that holds it. The support of this religion is the people of knowledge. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The most difficult things to accomplish are generosity in times of hardship, abstaining in seclusion, and speaking the truth to one you fear and have hopes of. [Ma'ruf al Kharkhi]
Guidance of the Day:
We often think the big things are what really matter, but that's not always true. Never underestimate the importance of loving acts. One tiny kind deed can make a world of difference-----and you may never even know it. The wisest words about love are: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This is a good advice------always stop and think before you respond or act out of kindness or harshness. Imagine how you would feel, how you would like to be treated, if you were in that person's shoes.
The true blessing of offering love comes when you don't need to do something for someone, but you do it anyway------for no other reason than your desire to be loving. In these instances, you, as well as the person you are loving, are truly blessed. [Handbook for the Heart]
Food for Thought:
Never forget, each of your words is like a feather in the wind. Once spoken, no amount of effort, regardless how heartfelt or sincere, can ever return them to your mouth. Choose your words well, and guard them most of all in the presence of those you love.
