LESSON OF THE DAY 816
That home of the hereafter We will give to those who do not desire exaltation on earth, or immorality. And the result is for the conscientious. [28: 83]
Hadith of the Day:
When someone is humble toward fellow Muslims, Allah raises that person's state. When someone tries to belittle fellow Muslims and claims to be better than they, Allah lowers that person below the others. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
There is nothing more beneficial to a Muslim's heart than to mix with the righteous and to watch their actions, while nothing is more harmful to the heart than mixing with the sinners and watching their actions. [Ahmad ibn Harb]
Guidance of the Day:
Change is rarely easy, and you need to exercise gentleness and patience with yourself as you work your way through this process. Growth can be slow, painstaking process and patience will provide you with the stamina you need to become the person you want to be. If you absolutely hate getting stuck in the traffic, chances are you need a little work in the area of patience. And, chances are, you will probably get stuck in more traffic jams than someone who has no issue with patience-----and not simply because the universe has a sense of humor. You will just notice the traffic more than someone who has no issues with it. Remember, a lesson will be repeated until learned. It just takes a little patience.
There is no part of life that does not contain lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned. Striving to get all the details of life under control is impossible, because life will present new lessons daily. You never actually finish all your lessons, for as long as you are alive, there are lessons to learn. Regardless of your age, or station in life, or success level, you will never be exempt from the lessons you need to learn in order to continue growing. Your journey on earth is constantly unfolding, and while your wisdom grows and your capacity to deal with challenges expands, new lessons will present themselves. In fact, as the depth of your wisdom increases, your capacities expand proportionately, allowing you to take on and solve with greater ease more advanced challenges. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
Vengeance has no foresight. Revenge is the abject pleasure of an abject mind. The best manner of avenging ourselves is by not resembling him who has injured us.
