LESSON OF THE DAY 946
And for those who scoffed, they will have fire of hell, without it ever being decreed that they should pass away, and without its agony ever being lightened for them. Thus do We repay every ingrate. And they will beg for help in there: "Our Lord, release us, and we will do right, not what we used to do." But didn't We Grant you long enough life for those who were receptive to take a lesson, especially since a warner came to you? So suffer, for there is no savior for those who do wrong. [35:36,37]
Hadith of the Day:
Keep yourself clean from urine, much of the suffering of the grave falls upon people who were unclean. [Bazzar]
Wise Quote of the Day:
He who guides you to this world has cheated you; but he who guides you to Allah has truly counseled you. [Shykh Abul Hasan al Shadhili]
Guidance of the Day
Have you ever been awakened in the morning by the alarm clock in the middle of a wonderful dream? What happens? You try to go back to sleep, but what doesn't happen? The dream doesn't return. Life is that dream. If you knew you were going to die one year from today, what would you do with the next year of your life? Do those things. Go home tonight and make a list. Then set about making those things happen. Revisit that list every day, check on your progress, and renew your resolution. Because life is short and you are dead an awful long time. Live life passionately. Laugh often, love always, cultivate soul, don't be afraid to dream big dreams, embrace your God.
Our world is changing so quickly. It can be a little frightening at times. It is easy to become so busy worrying about the future that we forget to live our dreams. There is something wonderful about a dream. It is not the achievement of the dream that matters most, but rather the pursuit of those dreams that are born from deep within us. The pursuit of the dream is life; it does something mysterious to us, fills us with hope, passion, and enthusiasm, and expands our capacities as a human person in every way. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Everything is predictable. Yet, we have no idea what will happen. That is the curious paradox of our world. We all know we are going to die, but none of us knows just how or when or where.
