LESSON OF THE DAY 892
(Luqman said) " And don't be contemptuous toward people, and don't swagger around on earth: for God loves no pompous braggart. And moderate your stride, and lower your voice, for the most repulsive sound is surely the braying of an ass. [31: 18,19]
Hadith of the Day:
To respect God as you should is the source of all good deeds. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The ruin of the heart lies in the denying the desire for obedience. [Abdul Hakeem Murad]
Guidance of the Day:
Every happiness in life comes from discovering who you are as a unique individual and being true to your own self. It is only through self-donation-----giving ourselves to others----that we discover our true self. There is no greater gift than the sincere gift of self. It is the essence of relationship and life. There is more to life than getting, grabbing, having, and receiving. Life is as much about giving as it is about receiving. Learn to give the one gift that you were born to give----yourself. The meaning of life is mysteriously revealed in this act. There is no faster way to happen upon the purpose of your life than to embrace life's daily opportunities to serve those around you.
Life is an adventure of self-discovery. You are different. You are unique and special. You are a wonder and a marvel. Be all you can be. Be yourself. In every moment, choose your best self. If you do you will be choosing happiness for you and for all those you touch in this life. You are the gift you can give to yourself and to the world. Celebrate the one life you have by becoming the-best-version-of-yourself. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
The superior man is modest in his speech, but excels in his actions. There is no genius in life like the genius of energy and activity. Right action is the key to good living. Let us work as if success depended upon ourselves alone, but with heartfelt conviction that we are doing nothing, and God everything.
