LESSON OF THE DAY 923
All praise is due to God, to whom belongs what is in the heavens and what is on the earth; and to whom is due all praise in the hereafter, and who is perfectly wise and completely aware. [34: 1]
Hadith of the Day:
A Muslim is not permitted to argue with a fellow Muslim, to make fun of him, or to make him a promise that he cannot keep. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Some of the most sublime bestowals of God are contentment with the reliance upon God in hardships, and recourse to Him in reverse of fortune. [Shaykh Abul Hasan Shadhili]
Guidance of the Day:
Have you ever given your best, your all, to anything? What do you think would happen if you did? The legends, heroes, leaders, champions, and saints who fill our history books loved what they did. People of their caliber dedicate their whole being to their pursuits. Dedicate yourself to becoming the-best-version-of-yourself. In everything you do, remember your essential purpose. View everything in relation to becoming your best self. Everything makes sense against the backdrop of the purpose of our lives. Everything finds meaning in relation to our essential purpose. Love yourself by becoming the-best-version-of-yourself.
Dedicate yourself to choosing the-best-version-of-yourself in every choice you make. You are here for some reason. You have been born to live one life. Foster the belief that you were born for a reason. . . and with every passing day you will begin to see the reason unfolding before your eyes. You were created for a purpose, and everything happens for a reason. Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Religion in the life of man is a momentary glance from time to time into eternity. Religion is the sacrifice of a meal in order that starvation elsewhere may be averted. Religion is as big as life and as normal an experience as breathing, eating, and sleeping. Religion should be our steering wheel, not our spare tire.
