LESSON OF THE DAY 920

Ayahs of the Day:
God and God's angels bless the Prophet: O believers, invoke blessings on him, and greet him with a prayer for peace. As for those who offend God and the Messenger of God, God has cursed them in this world and the hereafter, and arranged a degrading punishment for them. [33: 56, 57]

Hadith of the Day:
The one who realizes that he is wrong in his opinions, and does not get into an argument, has won a place at the edges of Paradise. The one who knows he is right and does not argue has won a place at the center of Paradise. [Tirmidhi]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Indeed the whole world is imagination. Only He is the real in Reality. Whoever understands this knows the secrets of the spiritual path. [Ibn Arabi]

Guidance of the Day:
Every day, hundreds of options exist for us to expend our time, effort, and energy. Dozens of opportunities emerge in the day-to-day happenings of our lives that distract us from what is really important. Successful people do not allow these distractions to take a grip on their lives. In each moment of decision throughout the day, they carefully consider the opportunity before them in relation to their life principle. They constantly ask themselves, "Will this help me achieve my goal?" "Will this help me along the path toward point B?" They use their life principle as their guide or navigator. It becomes guiding principle of their lives and the anchor of their dreams.

The whole world will get out of the way for someone who knows what he wants and where he is going. Who you become is infinitely more important than what you do or what you have. This idea brings us to focus on change, growth, and development. It challenges us to dedicate our efforts and energies to those activities that will help us to become the-best-version-of-ourselves. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]

Food for Thought:
To hold a grudge against anyone is like carrying the devil on your shoulders. It is our willingness to forgive and forget that casts away such a burden and brings light into our hearts, freeing us from many ill feelings against our fellow human beings.
