LESSON OF THE DAY 797
Don't they see that We made the night for them to rest therein, and the day for visibility? Surely in that are signs for a people who believe. [27: 86]
Hadith of the Day:
Make each of your prayers as if it will be your last prayer. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
If you devote yourself to God in this world, He will admit you among His chosen servants in the Hereafter. Such devotion, however, demands sacrifice and self-denial, the two instruments that make union with God possible. [Al-Hujwiri]
Guidance of the Day:
If we want a life filled with love, we can't wait for the world and all the people in it to conform to our wishes. Actually it is the other way around. The love we want begins with us. As we make loving choices and fill our life with love, we start to notice that the people around us are also more loving. Then we receive the love we need. It's a circle of love that begins with us. As we consciously consider the love in our lives, reflecting on love and loving choices, our lives can't help but filled with love. Love becomes a habit. If our attention is on what's wrong, that's what we notice. If our attention is on what's precious, that too is what we see. It's not always easy, but it is pretty simple.
In our own little way, each of us affects the world with every choice we make. Either we are part of the problem or we are part of the solution. We either bring more love into the world or we get in the way. Each choice that we make along the way becomes an important step on the path of love. When being a source of love is our top priority, life becomes a magnificent, love-filled journey to be treasured. [Handbook for the Heart]
Food for Thought:
Responsibility educates. Responsibility is the thing people dread most of all. Yet it is the one thing in the world that develops us, gives us manhood or womanhood fibre. The only way to get rid of responsibilities is to discharge them. It is the price of greatness.
