LESSON OF THE DAY 942

Ayahs of the Day:
Haven't they seen that God sends rain from the sky? We then produce thereby fruits of various colors. And in the mountains are streaks of white and red, varying in their hue, and deepest black. And among humans, and the creatures that crawl, and animals-----they differ in their colors, in the same way. The one's among God's servants who are in awe of God are the knowledgeable; for God is almighty, forgiving. [35: 27,28]

Hadith of the Day:
Do not frighten your brother in faith in any way. To cause stress for your brother incurs serious blame. [Tabarani]

Wise Quote of the Day:
Be fearful lest the existence of His generosity towards you and the permanence of your bad behavior towards Him not lead you step by step to ruin. [Ibn Ata'Allah]

Guidance of the Day:
What holds our lives together? Rhythm. Rest and pauses are as important in great lives as activity. It is natural for us to want a better world for our children to grow up in. We must recognize that achieving great change for the common good takes a long time. Those working for the good are not in a hurry. They are patient, they are wise. They do all they can to bring on this good without losing the rhythm of life themselves. They never sacrifice the rhythm.

You must find the rhythm, your rhythm. The rhythm that connects you with the rest of creation in harmony and peace. The rhythm that most effectively allows the grace of God to work within your life. The rhythm that allows you to find that sacred balance that gives you strength, courage, and confidence to be yourself. The rhythm that leads you along the path of growth and perfection. The rhythm of life that unveils and fulfills you legitimate needs. The rhythm of life is a powerful thing. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]

Food for Thought:
There is only one way to bring up a child in a way he should go, and that is to travel that way yourself. It is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
