LESSON OF THE DAY 934
If anyone wants power, well, all power belongs to God, to whom ascends the good word, and who exalts the act of integrity. As for those who connive evil, there is a severe punishment for them, and their conniving is in vain. [35: 10]
Hadith of the Day:
A person who cannot be quiet and attentive while the sermon is delivered on Fridays is like a donkey carrying books on his back. As for the one who asks him to be quiet, his congregational prayer is imperfectly done. [Ahmad]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Act towards this world as if it were not, and towards the world to come as if it would never cease to be. He is a wise man who regards this world as nothing, and so regarding it, seeks the other world. [Hasan al Basri]
Guidance of the Day:
As time goes by, you realize that many of the things you once thought you needed, you don't really need. With this realization of your own abundance, you are able to give more. Have you noticed that although God is always giving. He is never without? God is not lack or limitation-------God is abundance. Let the giving become like breathing for you and for me, and our lives will be full of excitement, passion, satisfaction, contentment, and fulfillment.
Finding our place in the world, finding our place in our local community, and making a difference in our own way all give meaning, purpose, and a deep, deep sense of fulfillment to our lives. We must not only find it for ourselves, but help every individual to find the same. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Fix your thoughts on what is true and good and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. Think about all you can to praise God for and be glad about. What we steadily, consciously, habitually think we are, that we tend to become.
