LESSON OF THE DAY 958
As for the inhabitants of the garden, they will be merry at work that day; they and their mates will be in the shade, reclining on couches; there they will have fruit, and what ever they request. "Peace"------a word from a merciful Lord. [36: 55 to 58]
Hadith of the Day:
Help the ones who need help, save the ones who are tyrannized, show the way to the ones who are lost. [Abu Dawud]
Wise Quote of the Day:
Certainty calls one to cut short expectation for worldly fulfillment, cutting short this expectation calls one to renunciation, renunciation bequeaths wisdom, and wisdom bequeaths the discernment of the outcome. [Dhun nun al Misri]
Guidance of the Day:
Most people are sleepwalking. Many wander through life in a sort of semiconscious state, having some idea of what they do, but not really sure why they are doing it. Mostly, we do what other people do, for we have made gods of popular opinions, beliefs, and actions. We worship the masses instead of God. This kind of unchosen living doesn't work. When we live in an attempt to fulfill the dreams and desires of others, we may (for a while) succeed in convincing ourselves that we are happy, but sooner or later we must admit that we have our own calling in life.
God did not intend for any of us to be crippled. It is we who cripple ourselves with small thinking, ideas of limitation, and fear. Neither can the physical body bind us, unless we let it. Lack of physical energy is a lack of mental enthusiasm. Nor has money ever stopped anyone from doing anything. If our intention is clear and our faith strong, the money will come. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Your weakness is no excuse: "He gives power to the faint." For the victory of battle stands not in the multitude; but strength comes from heaven. Nothing is so strong as gentleness: nothing is so gentle as real strength. These three things deplete man's strength: fear, travel, and sin.
