LESSON OF THE DAY 837
How many animals don't carry their provisions! God provides for them, and for you too, being the all-hearing, the all-knowing. [29: 60]
Hadith of the Day:
The fear of God should be in your hearts. If you dare to hurt your Muslim brother, that is sufficient to earn you God's curse. It is forbidden by God to harm the property, the honor, or the physical being of another Muslim. [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Those who truly know God worship Him with all their resolve; they concede to His ubiquitous bounty and obey all His commandments with the utmost fervor. As their adoration grows so does their obedience. [Al-Hujwiri]
Guidance of the Day:
If you don't know what you want from life, everything will appear either an obstacle or as a burden. But one of the great lessons of history is that the world gets out of the way for people who know what they want or where they are going. Be assured, if you don't know where you are going, you are lost.
A great purposelessness has descended upon modern civilizations. People at large have lost any sense of the meaning and purpose of life; and without an understanding of our own purpose, there can be no true commitment. Whether that commitment is to marriage, family, study, work, God, relationships, or the simple resolutions of our lives, it will be almost impossible to fulfill with a clear and practical understanding of our purpose. Commitment and purpose go hand in hand. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Experience is yesterday's answer to today's problems. Our wisdom usually comes from our experience, and our experience largely from our foolishness. One reason experience is such a good teacher is that it doesn't allow any dropouts.
