LESSON OF THE DAY 959

Ayahs of the Day:
"And stand aside today, you who are sinners: Did I not charge you, O children of Adam, not to serve Satan, for he is an open enemy for you, and to serve Me? This is a straight path. He has already lead a great many of you astray; didn't you realize? This is hell, of which you were warned. Burn in it today, since you used to scoff." [36: 59 to 64]

Hadith of the Day:
You should remember the reality that brings an end to all worldly joys and pleasures, namely, death. [Fiqh us Sunnah]

Wise Quote of the Day:
This life is the wine of Satan, whoever is intoxicated by it only awakens amid the hoards of the dead, lamenting amongst the losers. [Yahya bin Mu'az]

Guidance of the Day:
Confidence in God's ability to meet our needs is returned with Providence that laughs at chance. There is a much bigger scheme to life than most people see. We must listen with our hearts and not with our ears. We must have confidence. Once we align ourselves with a direction from within, no one in the world can convince us otherwise, for our source of acknowledgement is far more powerful than any that the world could offer or any challenge the world could pose.

Our learned limitations are our shadows, we can rid ourselves of them only by facing them with a little light. Each of us must ultimately conquer our own shadows. Until them, our Divine Self remains penned in a little corner of a frightening world while we are acting happy, but really knowing that there is more, for we are more. Once we begin to see that we can be anything we want to be. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]

Food for Thought:
Don't be afraid of darkness. The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. You can decide to focus on the darkness or use it to appreciate that your life contains light too. You would never appreciate the light if you didn't have the darkness. Let the Director show you the way! Go inside, discover your own black hole, and emerge with new energy and true light of awareness.
