LESSON OF THE DAY 772
(The servants of the Benevolent One are) those who when they spend are neither extravagant nor stingy, but right in between. [25: 67]
Hadith of the Day:
An hour spent in the evening to study the fundamentals of my religion is better than praying the whole Night of Power. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The best of the words is that which is confirmed by the best of the actions. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
Love is the supreme activity of life. Developing love in yourself has to take priority. You need to draw upon the divine energy from God so that you have a power to manifest or express this kind of love. Then the word love is no longer a noun. This word love becomes a verb. It's something you do, a sacrifice you make.
If love is a verb, if forgiveness is a verb, if kindness is a verb, then you can do something about it. But if love is just a feeling, you feel almost helpless because you feel you have no control over your feelings. Since you have control over your actions, you therefore have control over your feelings. As you gradually discover this, you gain the maturity to love-----whether you are loved in return or not. [Handbook for the Heart]
Food for Thought:
Think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we only will tune in. We must go back to nature for information, it knows no pause in progress and development, and attaches her curse on all inaction. Nature creates ability; luck provides it with opportunity.
