LESSON OF THE DAY 866
Haven't they seen that God expands and restricts the provision of anyone at will? Surely there are signs in that for people who believe. [30: 37]
Hadith of the Day:
Shame is a clear sign of faith, and the faithful are in Paradise. Shamelessness is a sign of suffering and cruelty, and the cruel are in Hell. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Those who are truly alone and in exile are those who are not connected with Him through belief and submission, or attach no importance to that relation. [Badiuzzaman Said Nursi]
Guidance of the Day:
The needs that correspond with our desire for peace are silence, simplicity, and solitude. Do you ever feel you just need a little time to yourself? Do you find yourself questioning the way you are living your life? Do you have questions about what is best for you now? Do you feel overloaded or overwhelmed? All of these are signs that you need a little silence, solitude, and simplicity. These feelings and questions are our spiritual desires trying desperately to be heard.
Depending on our situation in life, some of these will be easier to meet than others. A mother with young children may find it very difficult to find silence, solitude, and simplicity. We must remember that we are not talking about the constant silence, solitude, and simplicity of a monk. What we need and desire are small pockets of silence and solitude and a general structure of simplicity. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Who is Really Rich--------He who curbs his desires will always be rich enough. That man is rich whose pleasures are cheapest. To be satisfied with what one has; that is wealth. He who is content in his poverty is wonderfully rich.
