LESSON OF THE DAY 841
What is this life of the world but play and sport? The home of the Hereafter------that is life, if only they knew. [29: 64]
Hadith of the Day:
All people pass a test in their life. The test of my people is what they do with the goods of this world. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
A servant is never free of either blunders or shortcomings or lassitude. Therefore never be neglectful of repentance, and never turn away from the act of returning to God the Exalted, and never neglect acts that bring you closer to God the Exalted. [Ahmad al Zarruq]
Guidance of the Day:
Our essential purpose is to become the-best-version-of-ourselves. Once we discover this and place this purpose at the center of our lives, everything begins to make sense. Until we discover our essential purpose, nothing makes sense, and we wander around aimlessly, slowly being numbed into lives of quiet desperation. It is the quest to improve ourselves, to be all we are capable of being, to test our limits, and to grow steadily toward the-best- version-of-ourselves that brings meaning to our lives.
There is purpose and meaning to life. You were born to become the-best-version-of- yourself. To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life. Our yearning for happiness is intimately linked to our essential purpose. The activities that help us become-the-best-version-of-ourselves also fill our lives with sustainable happiness. Embrace this one solitary truth------you were born to become the-best-version-of-yourself-----and it will change your life more than anything you have ever learned. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
To change your world, you must change yourself.
To blame and complain will only make matters worse.
Whatever you care about, is your responsibility.
