LESSON OF THE DAY 832
For thus have We revealed the Book to you, so those to whom We have given the scripture believe in it too; and no one rejects Our signs except the ungrateful. [29: 47]
Hadith of the Day:
The one who is humble, who cares for all of God's creatures, and who serves them with gentleness and dignity is safe from Hellfire. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Supreme knowledge is fear of Allah, cheerful acceptance of the decree of Allah, and love for Allah. [shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]
Guidance of the Day:
You can look back on the incidents in your past and see clearly the lessons you have learned, resisted, and are still repeating. "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift, that is why we call it the present." It is more challenging to look at present situation and see exactly what your lessons are. Looking into the future is the most difficult. Wishing that you had already graduated from the school of life does not accelerate your progress or make the lessons any easier. Examining the situation for the real lesson is the scavenger hunt.
Remind yourself that you are here to learn lessons. Be present with your process. Pay attention to what you are experiencing. Be diligent with actions which enable you to "get" the lessons presented to you. Ask for answers and you shall receive them. Listen with an open heart. Explore all options. See your judgment as a mirror. View each crisis as an opportunity. Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons. [Scott, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules]
Food for Thought:
The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is the knowledge of our own experience. Great victories come, not through ease, but by fighting valiantly and meeting hardships bravely. While troubles will come, they are always temporary-----nothing lasts forever. Remember, "This too will pass."
