LESSON OF THE DAY 947
God is the one who knows the secret of the heavens and the earth, thoroughly knowing what is in hearts. God is the one who made you deputies on earth; so whoever scoffs is responsible for his own ingratitude; and the ingratitude of the scoffers only makes them more odious to their Lord; and the ingratitude of the scoffers only increases their loss. [35: 38,39]
Hadith of the Day:
Give the sadaqa without delay for it stands in the way of calamity. [Tirmidhi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Treat miserliness by realizing that those who achieved affluence did so only by exhausting themselves over long periods of time, thus finally accumulating what they sought. Meanwhile, just as they approach the height of (earthly) splendor, death suddenly assails them. [Imam al Muwlud]
Guidance of the Day:
So what are we waiting for? We get only one shot at life. Isn't it time for a little soul-searching? Visit a quiet place. Take a walk in the park. Turn off the television and talk to your children. Keep a promise. Tell your mom you love her. Make friends with your neighbors. Say yes instead of maybe. Watch a sunset. Say sorry. Make peace with God.
Do not waste your life, because life is there------all you have to do is reach out and embrace it. Anything is possible. Whatever your dream is, make it happen. Have courage. Start today. You will be amazed what life will give you in return for a little bit of courage. Courage is choice. Be certain of one thing: The measure of your life will be the measure of your courage. [Kelly, The Rhythm of Life]
Food for Thought:
Good temper, like a sunny day, sheds a ray of brightness over everything! We cannot control the tongues of others, but a good life enables us to disregard them.
