LESSON OF THE DAY 815
From divine mercy God has made for you the night and the day, for you to rest therein, and for you to seek of God's bounty; and that you may be grateful. [28: 73]
Hadith of the Day:
Whoever humbles himself for Allah's sake, Allah raises to the highest levels. Whoever is arrogant against Allah, Allah reduces to the lowest of the low. [Ibn Hibban]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not be ruled by the lust; seek freedom by following the righteous. Mere claims of piety will not earn you inner freedom. Remain patient in adversity to attain peace, for adversity is the threshold to freedom. [Mawlana Rumi]
Guidance of the Day:
Life doesn't require that we be the best-----only that we try our best. The real secret to being able to change is the willingness to do so. If you are to make any progress at all in excavating yourself from the cycles that entrap you, you must first identify the patterns that keep you stuck. Then you can begin to release the old behavior. If you truly want to change, you will choose to do it, and make a commitment to the process of it.
Be patient. You will know when it's time for you to wake up and move ahead. Patience is the display of tolerance while awaiting an outcome. You are presented with the lesson of patience the moment you try to create a change within yourself. You expect immediate results and are often disappointed when your first few attempts to follow through fall short. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Though:
Little things affect little minds. It is the little bits of things that fret and worry us; we can dodge an elephant, but we can't dodge a fly. There is nothing too little for so little a creature as man. It is by studying little things that we attain the great art of having as little misery and as much happiness as possible.
