LESSON OF THE DAY 894
And when they are told, "Follow what God has revealed," they say, "No, we will follow what we found our fathers devoted to." What? Even if it is Satan inviting them to the torment of the blaze? [31: 21]
Hadith of the Day:
Remember God always, read God's prescriptions in the Holy Book, because that will shed light upon your life in this world and secure God's remembrance of you in the heavens. And watch your tongue even when you speak beneficently. If you do these things, you will resist the temptations of the accursed Devil. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Stay away from abomination of sin that may deface your purity. The Lord shall bless you with much bounty; therefore let not the cares of this world drive your peace away. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]
Guidance of the Day:
If we can discover the rhythm of our own lives, that rhythm will in turn create a harmony and balance that will give birth to a deep and abiding peace. And it is that peace, the fruit of harmony, that allows the highest levels of effective and abundant living. What great lessons can nature teach us about ourselves? Nature whispers messages to us each and every day: "Great things are achieved little by little." Discover the rhythm of life and align your life with this rhythm. The more you do, the more you will enjoy peace and prosperity.
The truth of this message is displayed all around us in thousands of ways every day. The waves roll onto the shore, washing against the rocks, and erosion occurs. You do not see it with the first wave or with the second or third, but over the years you realize that slowly and steadily the waves are wearing the rock down. Who would think of water as stronger than rock? Persistence has strength. The rhythm of life is powerful. The rhythm of life leads us to a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place and role in nature, empowering us to harness our own natural energies. [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, puts itself in our hands and hopes we learned something yesterday.
