LESSON OF THE DAY 933
God is the one who sends the winds that raise the clouds: then We drive them to a land that is dead, and revive the earth thereby after its death. That is how the resurrection will be. [35: 9]
Hadith of the Day:
Whoever shames his brother in faith and exposes his faults risks God's showing his own secret faults. Even if he hides in his house, he will be exposed-----disgraced and scorned by the world. [Abu Dawud]
Wise Quote of the Day:
You ought to know yourself as you really are, so that you may understand of what nature you are and whence you have come to this world and for what purpose you were created and in what your happiness and misery consist. [Imam al Ghazali]
Guidance of the Day:
Give of your time, give of your talents, and give of your resources to make a difference in other people's lives. It is the way of greatness. This is the way of God. It is the way of legends, heroes, stars, champions, leaders, and saints. I hope and pray that it becomes your way, and mine.
Whatever you give to another will return to you ten times. You get what you give. When you refuse to give, holding on tightly to everything you have, you live in the realm of lack of limitation. When you give, you perform a significant and vital attitude change. By giving, you express abundance------and what you express in thought, word, and action will become reality of your life. Here, veiled mysteriously by the act of giving, we discover the abundant life. When you give to assist in someone else's need, you learn very quickly that the satisfaction of giving is greater than the satisfaction of having. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival. Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing, if you want to be remembered after your death.
