LESSON OF THE DAY 851

Ayahs of the Day:
Glorify God in your evenings and your mornings------for all praise in the heavens and on earth are due to God------and at dusk and midday. [30: 17,18]

Hadith of the Day:
A believer has found salvation only when he has just what he needs, and is satisfied and pleased with the share that God has bestowed on him. [Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
There are three things that harm human beings: to be intolerant and impatient with people around you; to be habituated to something you cannot leave; and to be controlled by your ego. [Shaykh Hazim al Qibrisi]

Guidance of the Day:
Ideas shape our lives. Ideas shape history. We all have a need for a constant flow of ideas that inspire us, challenge us, illumine our minds, teach us about ourselves and our world, show us what is possible, and encourage us to become the-best-version-of-ourselves. We need a diet of the mind just as much as we need a diet of the body. The ideas we feed our mind today tend to form our lives tomorrow.

We become the stories we listen to. It doesn't matter if we get those stories from movies, music, television, newspapers, magazines, politicians, friends, or books-----the stories we listen to form our lives. If you discover that the stories we are listening to have less meaning, contain more violence, and, rather than inspire us and raise our standards, appeal more and more to the lowest common denominator, you can be sure that in the future our lives will have less meaning, contain more violence, and be more focused on the lowest common denominator. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]

Food for Thought:
Live simply. Love generously.
Care deeply. Speak kindly.
Leave the rest to God.
