LESSON OF THE DAY 950
If God punished people as they deserved, that would not leave a single living creature in its wake; however, God lets them stay for a certain term. Then when their term is up, it turns out God has been watching all creatures. [35: 45]
Hadith of the Day:
The ones who will enter the Paradise first are the workers who were loyal and obedient to God and their employers. [Tabarani]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Look at this: Inspite of all the word's bitterness, you are passionately and shamelessly attached to it. Know that bitter tribulation is a mercy! [Mawlana Rumi]
Guidance of the Day:
Genius is God's gift to all, though it is accepted by few. Within you lie riches and talents for greater than you have recognized and expressed. The ackowledgement of your capabilities bears a double blessing. As you grow into your own evolution, you serve the world. There is no limitation upon what you can do.
Look at your lives with open eyes. If you see closed avenues, it is because you are looking with closed eyes. Do not be distracted by the small-mindedness of men. The child of man sees mountains where the child of God sees skies. Choose your goal, and allow God to succeed through you. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore}
Food for Thought:
Real joy comes not from ease or riches or from the praise of men, but from doing something worth while. It is a tremendous joy in giving. It is a very important part of the joy of living. To pursue joy is to lose it. The only way to get it is to follow steadily the path of duty without thinking of joy, and then, it comes most surely.
