LESSON OF THE DAY 912
God has not put two hearts in a man; nor made your adoptees into your sons-----those are your own expressions. But God speaks the truth, and that guides the way. [33:4]
Hadith of the Day:
During my ascension I saw in Hell some people with sharp nails made of copper tearing at their faces and I asked my companion, the Angel Gabriel, who they were. He said, "They are the people who dishonored human beings by backbiting during their lives. [Abu Dawud]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Well being has ten parts, nine of which are only found in solitude and one found in interaction with people. The lover of God loves his times of solitude. [Othman radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
The key to success in any field is not a secret. There are no secrets to success. Gimmicks and quick fixes do not lead a person to success. Neither do fast-talking, empty philosophies. Success in any field-----business, sport, politics, music, art, or spirituality-----depends upon a deep and profound understanding of who you are and what your needs, talents, and desires are. The key to success is character. And while the foundation of character is self-discipline, the essence of character is personality. Your unique personality holds the secrets to your success.
The greatest success is to be constantly growing, changing, developing, and evolving into the better person you know you can be. In any activity that assists you in this "becoming," you will find success. Success is the intimate and harmonious relationship among need, desire, and talent. When these three are understood and pursued in balance, the result is extraordinary. True success lies in seeking to discover who you truly are individually and uniquely; finding your own special gift, talent, or ability; and developing that gift for the benefit of all. Such success enriches the individual in every way. This type of success enriches society. Success is not just an achievement, it is a contribution. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Every good thing you do,
every good thing you say,
every good thought you think,
vibrates on and on and never
ceases. The evil remains only
until it is overcome by the good,
but the good remains forever.
