LESSON OF THE DAY 884
As for those who have faith and do good works, for them there are gardens of felicity, wherein they will abide, as a promise of God, which is true; as God is the almighty, the supreme wise. [31: 8,9]
Hadith of the Day:
The best thing a person can do to gain God's approval is to watch the tongue. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
No work would be more highly rewarded on the Day of judgment than"bringing happiness to the human heart." [Nizamuddin Awliya]
Guidance of the Day:
The human spirit has extraordinary abilities and was created to soar. There is nothing more devastating than the stifling of the human spirit. Addictions take a grip on us from within. They suck the strength from our will and render us useless in any worthwhile cause. People who are enslaved by addictions have a weak will. Their mind is plagued by doubts, fears, and all manner of negative thoughts. They have no self-control and are not capable of taking the initiative. Those who are paralyzed by addiction follow sheepishly wherever the flock leads. And they will do anything to avoid taking a good, long, hard look at themselves.
Quite the opposite is the man who is free. The free man or woman is quietly confident and peaceful. Aware of both his strengths and weaknesses, he seeks self-analysis to improve himself. She is a woman of integrity, and her word is better than a signed contract. His mind is constantly filled with gratitude, appreciation, and all manner of positive thoughts. She is a leader who is prepared to take the initiative. He is a man of character, self-control, and firm will. She lives by bringing happiness to other people's lives. Are you free? [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Piety is the foundation of all virtues. It is a silver chain uniting heaven and earth, temporal and spiritual, God and man together. All is vanity which is not honest, and there is no solid wisdom but in true piety. Every thought which genius and piety throw into the world, alters the world.
