LESSON OF THE DAY 945
There are gardens of eternity they will enter, wearing there bracelets of gold and pearls, their clothes therein of silk: And they will say, "Praise God, who has caused sorrow to leave us; for our Lord is indeed most forgiving, most appreciative, the One who has permitted us the abode of the resurrection, out of divine grace, where hardship will not touch us and weariness will not afflict us." [35: 33,34,35]
Hadith of the Day:
Do not drink water in one breath like a camel. Recite the Name of God, breathe in and out to take three sips, and thank God. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
If you intend to reach Him, see yourself as insignificant at the door of God and be sincere in your deeds. [Bayazid al Bustami]
Guidance of the Day:
Take a moment to wander through the pages of history--------your family's history, your nation's history, human history------and extract from those pages the men and women you most admire. What would they be without courage? Nothing worthwhile in history has been achieved without courage. Courage is the father of every great moment and movement in history. Courage is learning to recognize and master that single moment. That moment is a prelude-----a prelude to courage or a prelude to fear. So much can be accomplished in one moment of courage. And so much can be lost to one moment of fear.
No one is born with courage. It is an acquired virtue. You learn to ride a bicycle by riding a bicycle. You learn to play football by playing football. Courage is acquired by practicing courage. And like most qualities of character, with practice our courage becomes stronger and more readily accessible with every passing day. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
No one is happy or free who lives only for himself. Joy in living comes from immersion in something one recognizes to be bigger, better, worthier, more enduring than he himself is. True happiness and true freedom come from squandering one's self for a purpose.
