LESSON OF THE DAY 897
Even if all the trees on the earth were pens, and the ocean were augmented by seven more oceans, the words of God would not be exhausted; for God is infinitely powerful, infinitely wise. Your creation and your resurrection are but as those of a single being: surely God is all-hearing, all-seeing. [31: 27,28]
Hadith of the Day:
Those who hold their tongues are as blessed as those who keep some of their fortune to spend in charity. [Bazzar]
Wise Quote of the Day:
The lovers of God derive their strength and spiritual energy from dhikr. They find happiness and glory in this world and in the Hereafter. [Shaykh Muzaffar Ozak]
Guidance of the Day:
When we are in touch with the rhythm of life, we are able to think about our lives as we live them, rather than as an after thought or regret. It is good for the soul to live life after reflecting. Many people are gifted extraordinarily; very few use their gifts to the upper limits. Upper-limit achievement is the fruit of disciplined, selective, concentrated focus. A life lived reflectively is a life lived effectively.
Slow down to find the rhythm of life. Maintain the rhythm in your life and enjoy the harmony it produces. Once you discover that peace deep within you, protect it at all costs. For this peace alone is happiness, fulfillment, contentment, pleasure, and a sure sign that you are evolving into a glorious being. Reflection creates direction and inner peace. The rhythm of life allows us to maintain that inner peace even amid the turmoil of the world. Let us begin to live to life what we believe. Let us discover the rhythm of life. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
You are a soul with a body, rather than a body with a soul. Allow yourself the luxury of believing in the divinity of your own soul. Treasure your physical being as a vehicle that house your soul. Once you have the inner way, the outer way will follow. In your soul lies the entryway to the world of real magic.
