LESSON OF THE DAY 925
And We have only sent you (O Muhammad) universally to all people, as a herald and a warner; but most people do not know. [34: 28]
Hadith of the Day:
On the Day of Judgment the ones who have committed the most errors are going to be the people who indulged in the most vain talk during their lifetimes. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
When a servant is conscientiously devoted to Allah Almighty, He rewards him by converting ignorance into knowledge, remoteness into nearness, silence into spoken recognition, loneliness into intimate friendship, and darkness into light. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]
Guidance of the Day:
Along the way you will meet many people. Some of them you will help, assist, advise. Others will help, assist, and advise you. When you think you are there to help someone else, chances are they are there to help you. Our students make our best teachers. Without the help of others, you will never make the journey. It is simply part of the divine plan that we make this journey together. It is a funny thing about life-------mistakes are almost always and inevitably one's own responsibility, but one's successes, triumphs, and worthwhile achievements are rarely accomplished without the help of others.
The greatest barrier to loving people, to cherishing people, and to accepting people is our inability to see ourselves in them. Take a closer look. We are one. To see ourselves in others and others in ourselves----that is wisdom. Life is relationship. How are we relating? How are our relationships? People are a gift. Each person who crosses through your life is a chance to love, a chance to really live. Cherish people. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Man does not live by bread alone, but by beauty and harmony, truth and goodness, work and recreation, affection and friendship, aspiration and worship. Not by bread alone, but by seeking and finding, serving and sharing, loving and being loved. Not by bread alone, but by being faithful in prayer, finding and doing the loving will of God now and eternally.
