LESSON OF THE DAY 948

Ayah of the Day:
The end of those who did evil will be the worst, as they repudiated the signs of God, and used to deride them. [30: 10]

Hadith of the Day:
If people had enough gold to fill two valleys, they would wish to have a third. Nothing will fill such people's stomachs but the earth in their graves. [Bukhari & Muslim]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Emulate the obedient worshipper, keep the company of the humbly penitent, be close friends with the steadfast and submissive, and visit those who bow and prostrate. [Muhammad ibn al Siddiq Ghumari]

Guidance of the Day:
Our needs are powerful. In many cases, if they are not fulfilled in healthy ways, they will seek their own satisfaction in self-destructive ways. The next of our legitimate emotional needs is our need for dynamic friendship. While we certainly need acceptance, we also have a need to be encouraged and challenged to change and grow.

Once you become dedicated to becoming the-best-version-of-yourself, the people you will most enjoy spending time with are not those who agree with you in everything you say and tell you that you should be a little easier on yourself........and have a second slice of cheesecake! If you are dedicated to your essential purpose, the people you will want to surround yourself with are people who inspire and challenge you to become the-best-version-of-yourself. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]

Food for Thought:
Time is lost when we have not lived a full human life. Do you love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of. Time wasted is a theft from God. A man who dares to waste one hour of life has not discovered the value of life.

Assalammu Allaikkum

Jazakallah hairun, I have been subscribing to your daily email and am extremely pleased with all the information received. I have even passed around the link to many of mt friends. May Allah grant ou the strength to continue your good work.

I have a small request if you would care to respond, I am keen on reading books of the great sufi masters, unfortunately as I do not understand Arabic, I would appreciate if you can suggest some good translations. I had recently bought the "Meccan Revelations" while it contains some translations but a lot has been surmised by the author. Somehow I am not able to accept this angle, since the author even after understanding the deep meanings remains a Kafir and in some cases have implied that Ibn Arabi equated all religions. This I cannot believe..

Appreciate your help

Again Jazakallah Hairun for teh good work
