LESSON OF THE DAY 840
And if you asked them who rains water from the sky, enlivening the earth thereby after it has died, they would surely say, "God." Say, "Praise be to God." But most of them don't understand. [29: 63]
Hadith of the Day:
The generous person is close to God, heaven, and humanity, and far away from Hell, while the miser is kept far from God, heaven, and humanity, and is in Hell. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Make a frequent practice of remembering death and what lies beyond it, and the narrow bridge and what lies beyond it. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]
Guidance of the Day:
What happens in our lives is almost always a result of those things we habitually think and those things we habitually do. Life is the fruit of discipline, or lack of it. We are our habits. Every disciplined effort has its own multiple reward. Life is the gathering of truth. Any truth we discover must not be allowed to remain isolated in one area of our lives, and certainly must not be allowed to remain merely in our minds. Rather, any truth life reveals to us must filter into every aspect of our lives, like blood to the cells of the body. Life is one. Truth should be lived.
What we do in the span of our lives may bring us financial rewards, status, power, and unimaginable possessions, but lasting happiness and fulfillment are not the by-products of doing and having. The truth is a startling contrast to the present culture's credo. Who you become is infinitely more important than what you do or what you have. The meaning and purpose of life is for you to become the-best-version-of-yourself. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
The possibilities you see in others, are possible for you as well.
The beauty you see around you, is your beauty.
The world around you is a reflection, a mirror showing you the person you are.
