LESSON OF THE DAY 803
Those to whom We sent the Book before this, they believe in it. And when it is recited to them, they say, "We believe in it, for it is the truth from our Lord; indeed, we had already acquiesced before this." [28: 52,53]
Hadith of the Day:
The one who has pride in his heart, even as little as a mustard seed, will not enter Paradise. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The key to successful repentance is not merely resolving to leave the sin, but to figure out what is leading to the sin, and to take the positive means to stay away from the causes of the sin. [Shaykh Faraz Rabbani]
Guidance of the Day:
You need to remember that you will only be faced with lessons that you are capable of learning and are specific to your own growth. If you are able to rise to this challenge, you can unravel the mystery of your purpose and actually live it. You cease being victim of fate or circumstances and become empowered-----life no longer just "happens to you."
When you are working toward fulfilling your true purpose you discover astonishing gifts within yourself that you may have never known you have. This process may not be easy, but the rewards are well worth the struggle. As you strive to discover and learn about yourself, you will most likely encounter the basic lessons of openness, choice, fairness, and grace. Look at these lessons as tools to help you discover your own unique purpose. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
Good manners are made up of petty sacrifices. In this world it is not what we take up, but what we give up, that makes us rich. One half of knowing what you want is knowing what you must give up before you get it. They never fail who die in a great cause.
