LESSON OF THE DAY 946
Don't they reflect within themselves? God did not create the heavens and the earth and what is between them except in a sound manner and for a definite term. But most people actually disbelieve in the meeting with their Lord. [30: 8]
Hadith of the Day:
The sign of God's contempt for a person is that He makes him spend what goods He has bestowed upon him on building monumental homes for himself. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
All who can read the signs of Allah in nature know His wisdom, goodness, power, and justice. They know His promise is sure, and in humble prayer, wholly put their trust in Him. [Abdullah Yusuf Ali]
Guidance of the Day:
The first step in our quest to become the best-version-of-ourselves is to define our legitimate needs. The second step is to create a lifestyle that fulfills those legitimate needs. We all have legitimate needs. The fulfillment of these needs is one of the very practical ways we can learn to embrace our essential purpose. If we are wise enough to seek their counsel, our legitimate needs will advise us what is necessary to maintain health of body, heart, mind, and spirit.
Our bodies are glorious creations and should be honored and respected. Regular exercise, a balanced diet, and regular sleep are three of the easiest ways to increase our passion, energy, and enthusiasm for life. They are among our simplest legitimate needs and contribute massively to the well-being of the whole person. Physical well-being is the foundation upon which we build our lives. Unless we attend to our legitimate needs in relation to the physical aspect of our being, our capacity in all other areas of our life will be reduced. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Everything happens for a reason, even if we are not wise enough to see it. Great people are not affected by each puff of wind that blows ill. Like great ships, they sail serenely on, in a calm sea or a great tempest.
