LESSON OF THE DAY 965
By those who stand together, side by side, and so are forbidding defenders, and who recited revelation, your God is actually One, Lord of the heavens and the earth and everything in between, and Lord of all points of the sunrise. [37: 1 to 5]
Hadith of the Day:
Rights will be given to those whom they are owed on the Day of Judgment, even the hornless sheep will have retaliation from the horned sheep. [Muslim]
Wise Quote of the Day:
To deem that Allah is with one every moment is the greatest expression of faith. [Othman radi Allah anhu]
Guidance of the Day:
You, within whom greatness lies dormant like a sleeping saint, arise to your hidden splendor! We do not ask you to be world leaders or heroes, but to do what you have been given to do, with loving care and your best ability. There is much, much more that you may know, that you may do, and that you may be. Seek out your highest calling and respond with your all. Do a little if you wish, but do it well.
Seek not greatness in the eyes of the world, for the world loves its own, and would have you be a part of it. When you serve God, you serve the world, for the world knows not how to serve itself. It believes it can serve itself, but only encumbers itself with thicker delusion. Seek worth in the eyes of God, who would have you be great through humility. Meekness is the refuge of the mighty which the arrogant cannot enter. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for the Day:
Just as we cannot see our own faces without looking into a mirror, we cannot know ourselves without looking into our soul. Reflect on the fact that you are much more than the physical being you see in the mirror. Stop judging and become perfectly imperfect human being.
