LESSON OF THE DAY 905
The only ones who believe in Our signs are those who when reminded of them fall down prostrate, extolling praise of their Lord, without conceit: their sides shun their beds as they pray to their Lord in fear and in hope, and they give of what We have provided them. [32: 15,16]
Hadith of the Day:
The one who claims something as his when it really belongs to someone else is not a faithful person and had better prepare for his place in Hell. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Applaud the good for their goodness; appreciate those who have believing hearts; be kind to the believers. Approach unbelievers so gently that their envy and hatred melt away. [Fethullah Gulen]
Guidance of the Day:
The will of God is the perfection of the creature. The will of God is that you make the journey from point A to point B. Each step along that path forms an allegiance and bond with the will of God. It is this journey that we discover the glory of life. It is in prayer that we discover the glory of God. And it is by living what we discover in prayer that we become the glory of God. The will of God is that you become a better person you know you can be, the-best-version-of-yourself.
Your unique personality, talents, needs, and desires are what make your journey different from mine. All of these are unveiled in the classroom of silence. Prayer is the great classroom of silence. Wisdom is not a mass of accumulated knowledge. Wisdom is those little pieces of knowledge that have the power to change our lives. Wisdom is truth lived. Wisdom is the fruit of a reflective heart. Wisdom is the fruit of silence. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
The cost of change is high, but the cost of not changing may be higher. When change is called for and we refuse to engage in it, we sacrifice the Self. the most desirable inner core, and sentence ourselves and others to suffer needlessly.
