LESSON OF THE DAY 817
Whoever brings about good gets what is even better. As for those who bring about ill, evildoers are not requited but for what they did. [28: 84]
Hadith of the Day:
Beware of envy, because it burns to ashes all of one's good deeds. [Abu Dawud]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Do not be ruled by lust; seek freedom by following the righteous. Mere claims of piety will not earn you inner freedom. Remain patient in adversity to attain peace. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]
Guidance of the Day:
Life is a year round school from which you never actually graduate, so it is the learning process itself that brings true value to existence. Embrace your role as a perpetual student of life. This means giving in to the idea that you actually don't know everything that you need to, and you never will. It also means that you need to convince your ego that being a student does not make you inferior. In fact, being a student opens up worlds of possibilities that are invisible to those who are unwilling to accept this role.
In order to rise to the challenge of embracing your role as perpetual student, you need to learn the lessons of surrender, commitment, humility, and flexibility. Without these important lessons, you will never be able to open your mind, heart, and spirit wide enough to allow yourself to take in all that life has to teach you. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
Waste neither time nor money, but make the best use of both. Without industry and frugality, nothing will do, and with them everything will. Short as life is, we make it still shorter by the careless waste of time. A man who dares to waste one hour of life has not discovered the value of life.
