LESSON OF THE DAY 858
And among the signs of God is that the sky and the earth exist by divine decree; and when God calls you, a call from the earth, you will then come forth-----for everyone in the heavens and on earth belongs to God, to whom everyone submits. [30: 25,26]
Hadith of the Day:
A good state of being and action, right intentions, and seriousness and prudence in the use of God's gifts is one twenty-forth of the character of a prophet. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Realize your abject character and impoverishment, and you will gain dignity and wealth from the All-Powerful. [Imam al Muwdud]
Guidance of the Day:
The fulfillment of our legitimate spiritual needs leads us to place our essential purpose at the center of our daily lives. When silence, solitude, and simplicity become a part of the fabric of our lives, we are much less inclined to neglect our other legitimate needs. Only with the focus, perspective, and vitality that are born from the spiritual disciplines will we ever transform each moment and experience of our lives into opportunities to become the-best-version-of-ourselves. Spirituality brings clarity, directions, continuity, and integrity to our lives.
You already have everything within you that you need to make the journey. You must simply begin to honor the truth you already possess. We all have needs. We need air to breathe, water to drink, and food to eat. We need to love and be loved. We need to accept and appreciate others and to be accepted and appreciated by others. We need to learn, to change, and to grow. We need to remember who we truly are and what matters most. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Do a deed of kindness;
Though its end you may not see,
It may reach, like widening ripples,
Down a long eternity.
