LESSON OF THE DAY 917
Believers, remember God with much remembrance, and praise God morning and evening. God is the one who blesses you, as do angels, to bring you out of the darknesses into the light; for God is merciful to the believers: their greeting on the day they meet God will be "Peace," and God has arranged a generous reward for them. [33: 41 to 44]
Hadith of the Day:
When two believers fight and abuse each other verbally, the one who swore first is guilty. But when the fight continues and the one who was initially attacked responds with curses, they are both guilty. [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
If men wish to draw near to God; they must seek Him in the hearts of men. They should speak well of all men, whether present or absent, and if they themselves seek to be a light to guide others, then like the sun, they must show the same face to all. [Abu sa'id bin Abi'l Khayr]
Guidance of the Day:
Life, in a sense, is a long succession of choices and decisions. The form your life takes depends on the decisions you make. What is different about the way legends, heroes, champions, leaders, and saints make decisions? What is their decision making process? They allow themselves to dream. They imagine perfect circumstances. They place no limitations upon their decision-making process. They ask: What would be best? What is the will of God? If I could do anything, would I do?
Do not dream like a bank manager. A bank manager tells you only what you can afford based on your realized potential. The greater part of all of us is our unrealized potential. It is true-----physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually. Do no let the guardians of the threshold prevent you from moving on and grasping your dreams. Do not let the emotional, intellectual, and spiritual bank managers discourage you from becoming the better person you know you can be. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
There are times when silence is the most sacred of responses. Silence is a great peace maker. Silence means you are under complete control of all your emotional reactions, which are conquered in silence. The principle of healing is to invoke silence. Silence is unceasing eloquence. It is the best language.
