LESSON OF THE DAY 970
This is a reminder; for there is a beautiful resort for the conscientious: eternal gardens, whose doors are open to them; where they may recline, wherein they may call for fruit in abundance, and drink; and with them will be demure females of the same age. This is what you are promised for the day of reckoning: this is, indeed, Our bounty, without end. [38: 49 to 54]
Hadith of the Day:
The most blessed marriage is the one with the least expenses. [Bayhaqi]
Wise Quote of the Day:
By emulating every act of the Prophet, every living moment of a believer becomes significant, every action full of meaning. By following his moral and spiritual teachings, we follow the best of human examples. [Shaykh Abdul Ma'bud]
Guidance of the Day:
As we make a determination our own, there is yet a more subtle teaching that calls for our mastery. We must be determined, but not headstrong. We must have faith that God will help us reach our goal, but we must hold a greater faith that if we have chosen a goal that is not in our interest, there will be a good reason for our not accomplishing it. We must take the attitude of high school shop students: our teacher will give us all the materials and methods of improving our skills, but if he sees us heading for an accident, he will turn off the electricity at the master switch.
We must hold firmly to determination, but be ready at any moment to let go of our goal if we discover that our plan is not God's plan. Our challenge is to distinguish between inner guidance and outer thoughts of limitation. Intuition and inertia wear the same garb; it is for us to distinguish between the two. [Cohen, The Dragon Doesn't Live Here Anymore]
Food for Thought:
Three things of life once gone never come back-----time, words, and opportunities.
Three things of life must not be lost-----peace, hope and honesty.
Three things of life are very valuable------Love, confidence, and friends.
