LESSON OF THE DAY 938
O humanity, you are in need of God, but God is independent of needs, worthy of all praise. If God willed, God would get rid of you and produce a new creation; and that would not be hard for God. [35: 15,26,17]
Hadith of the Day:
Accept the apology of your fellow Muslim if you wish to drink from the fountain of kawthar when you are thirsty on the Day of Judgment. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Persevere, have faith in His benevolence. Through afflictions God only tests your faith; He is completely aware of your condition. Have patience and wait for the divine decree. [Shaykh Abdul Qadir Jilani]
Guidance of the Day:
Life comes down to two simple realities. People were made to be loved, and things were made to be used. Your problems, my problems, and indeed all the world's problems come from our misunderstanding of these two simple principles. You see . . . we love things and we use people. It would not be too much to dedicate one's whole life to the reversal of these simple realities.
Love is our great desire------to love and to be loved. We know how to love, because we know how we wish to be loved. It is the central precept and principle of every major religion. It is the answer to every question. It is the solution to every problem. The answer is never to love less. The answer is always to love more. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Every now and again take a good look at something not made with hands----a mountain, a star, the turn of stream. There will come to you wisdom and patience and solace and, above all, the assurance that you are not alone in the world.
