LESSON OF THE DAY 854
And among the signs of God is having created mates for you from yourselves that you may feel at home with them, creating love and compassion between you. Surely there are signs in that for people who reflect. [30: 21]
Hadith of the Day:
Do not despair because of little good fortune and many trials in life. Trust that there is great benefit deriving from these in this world and in the Hereafter. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Be very polite towards the friends of Allah. Let your speech be wisdom and your looking reflection. [Muhammad ibn al Siddiq Ghumari]
Guidance of the Day:
Only in the area of spirituality do we come to understand most fully other legitimate needs--------physical, emotional, and intellectual--------and gain the insight to live a life that enriches, upholds, and protects our well-being in each of these areas. Our spiritual needs have a tendency to change as the seasons of our lives change. Each of us has a unique spiritual journey. In different stages of the journey, we have different needs. And yet, there are some needs that are unchanging and necessary in all seasons of our lives------silence, solitude, and simplicity. The way we seek to experience these habits of the soul may change, but all the same, they remain essential to our spiritual diet if we are to find lasting joy in this changing world.
The noise of the world is preventing us from hearing the gentle voice within that always counsels us to embrace the-best-version-of-ourselves. We will begin to hear this voice again only when we make a habit of withdrawing from the noise of the world and immersing ourselves in silence. We needn't spend hours in silence each day, but nothing brings priority to our days like a period of silence each day. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes to us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
