LESSON OF THE DAY 914
You have an excellent example in the messenger of God, for anyone who looks forward to God and the last day, and remembers God a lot. [33: 21]
Hadith of the Day:
For a believer to curse a believer is as bad as killing him. [Bukhari]
Wise Quote of the Day:
There is no minor sin when His justice confronts you; and there is no major sin when His grace confronts you. [Ibn Ata'Allah]
Guidance of the Day:
What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared with what lies within us. Lasting success, fulfillment, and happiness depend on self-knowledge. There is a greater practical wisdom than knowledge of self. The knowledge principle is, simply, "Know yourself." From the knowledge of ourselves, we are able to create and maintain a lifestyle that intimately links our dreams, hopes, needs, desires, and talents-------while at the same time leading us to change, grow, develop, and become the-best-version-of-ourselves.
Wise people know themselves and live from that knowledge. Great men and women know themselves. They know their strengths, their weaknesses, their faults and failings, their flaws and defects, their talents and abilities, their needs and desires, their hopes and dreams, their potential and purpose. From these pieces of knowledge they weave a life of beauty and splendor. "Know yourself" is a character principle of legends, heroes, champions, leaders, and saints. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Talking about God is not at all the same thing as experiencing God. The person who has a firm trust in the Supreme Being is powerful in his power, wise in his wisdom, happy in his happiness. A consciousness of God releases the greatest power of all.
