LESSON OF THE DAY 907

Ayah of the Day:
As for the immoral, their abode will be the fire; every time they try to get out of it, they will be returned to it, and they will be told, "Taste the torment of the fire, which you used to deny." [32: 20]

Hadith of the Day:
If somebody listens to the talk of some people who do not want him to listen, molten lead will be poured into his ears on the Day of Resurrection. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
If you are fearful of God's wrath, be steadfast in religion, for a tree holds fast to earth with its roots against violent storms. [Abdul Rahman ibn Ahmad al Jami]

Guidance of the Day:
If you cannot see the better person you know you can be, you cannot be that better person. Prayer is the place and time to visualize the ways in which you can become the-best-version-of-yourself. Prayer is the opportunity to join your heart and mind with God and to visualize everything you dream, hope, and wish to achieve and everything you long to be. Here lies the power of prayer. Make no mistake, prayer unleashes the unfathomable potential of the human spirit-----the power to visualize and engage unrealized potential.

It is also by prayer that God empowers us to overcome faults, addictions, and vices. Thought determines action. Do not let your whole life be a reaction to the things that happen around you each day. Let your life be an action. Successful people remind themselves of their goal in every waking moment of every hour of every day. Whether you seek to be a successful football player or successful in the spiritual life, the same principle applies. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]

Food for Thought:
There is a paradise in this world and the one who does not enter it will not enter the Paradise in the next world. This paradise is that which is achieved by performing the obligatory deeds followed by voluntary deeds, all done for the sake of Allah and according to the revelation of Allah.
