LESSON OF THE DAY 940
The blind and the seeing are not equal, nor are the darknesses and the light, nor are the cool and the heat. And the living and the dead are not the same: God may cause anyone to hear, at will, but you cannot cause those in the tombs to hear. [35: 19 to 22]
Hadith of the Day:
The fall one takes when one's tongue slips is much worse than the fall one takes when one's foot slips. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Perfecting one's intellect causes one to speak less, and those words spoken will be adorned with wisdom. [Ali radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
The people you love will not always be near you. Love them. Seize the opportunity. The most wonderful thing about love is that it is highly contagious. Love demands a response. Love determines the response. Love begets love. Here's a simple example. If you are walking down the street and you smile at someone coming in the opposite direction, what will happen? Usually he smiles back. But in the event he does not smile back, and the next day you see him again and smile again, then what happens? Eventually he smiles back. Love demands a response. Your love sets off a reaction, a ripple effect. Love begets love.
If you have bought into the modern definition of success---------"getting what you want out of life"------you have probably alienated yourself from the most important reality and truth of life. Love is a free gift. We sacrifice love for so-called progress. We sacrifice love for so-called success. We sacrifice love for so-called more important things-----no such things exist. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle. Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
