LESSON OF THE DAY 931

Ayahs of the Day:
O humanity, the promise of God is true, so don't let the life of the world deceive you, don't let illusion deceive you about God. For Satan is an enemy to you, so regard him as an enemy, who only calls to his partisans, to become inmates of the inferno. [35: 5,6]

Hadith of the Day:
There are palaces in Paradise for the one's who sweeten their tongues and talk kindly and beautifully, feed the hungry, and spend the nights praying while everyone else is sleeping. [Tabarani]

Wise Quote of the Day:
To take the Messenger as a model means to emulate him, follow his sunna, and abandon opposition to him in either word or action. [Muhammad ibn Ali al Tirmidhi]

Guidance of the Day:
There is no greater satisfaction than lying your head on the pillow at night and knowing you have touched another person's life, made his burden lighter, taught him some infinite wisdom, made him laugh, allowed him to cry on your shoulder, lent him an understanding ear. . . made a difference. " And so shines a good deed in a weary world." This is what our world needs. It is what makes the world a joy to live in. It is what fills with a tangible sense of our own worth and wealth.

Our every action is an opportunity to carry the torch of hope to an often weary world. Each day is filled with endless possibilities to make a difference. It doesn't take much, for it really is a weary world for so many people. It is a world full of people desperately hungry for sincerity, honesty, and goodness.. Most of them are men and women just like you and me. They don't have the power to change the world single-handedly, so they think change must be someone else's responsibility. The truth is, no one has the power to change the world single-handedly, but each of us has the power to make a difference. {Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]

Food for Thought:
Knowledge is learning something everyday. Wisdom is letting go of something everyday. It's not how you live, it's whose life you change in the wake hours. If you must raise your voice, do it to cheer someone.
