LESSON OF THE DAY 957

Ayahs of the Day:
It will be but a single blast, and lo-----they will all be brought before Us. Then that day no soul will be wronged in respect to anything, as you will not be recompensed but for what you have done. [36: 53,54]

Hadith of the Day:
Greet people who greet you, lead people to right and prevent them from going astray. [Bukhari]

Wise Quote of the Day:
The knowledge which results in renunciation consists of the realization that what is renounced is of little value in comparison with what is received. [Imam al Ghazali]

Guidance of the Day:
The time for all of us is of course, now. There is no need for anyone to wither in an unfulfilling and mechanical patterns of life. Routines cannot bind us unless we believe in them. Patterns were given to serve us------not for us to live for them.

Habits have been given for your strengthening, but they cease to be purposeful when you become subservient to them. Be masterful in approaching your activities. Consciously decide for free ways of being. No one is a master who is a slave to his own inventions. No more can you rely on forms for your strength. The time has come for you to rely on God and God alone. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude. The aim of life is appreciation, there is no sense in not appreciating things; and there is no sense in having more of them if you have less appreciation of them.
